Cristiano Ronaldo’s 89th minute bullet header saw Portugal go level with Republic of Ireland in their World Cup Qualifier, whilst also breaking the record for most international goals scored by a male footballer.
Ronaldo wasn’t stopping there though and seven minutes later he scored an almost replica of the first and the 36-year-old’s 111th international goal - two more than the original record holder Ali Daei.
The stoppage time goal also handed Portugal the lead and record-breaker Ronaldo celebrated in suitable fashion - pulling his shirt off, flexing his muscles and showing his supporters the back of his jersey.
The Manchester United forward will have been relieved when his header hit the back of the net after seeing his penalty saved by Manchester City keeper Gavin Bazunu earlier in the game, but Ronaldo wasn’t going to let a slight hiccup prevent a fairytale few days for him.
The Portuguese had previously equalled Daei’s record with two penalties in his nation’s final Euro 2020 group match against France back in June and it didn’t take him long to leapfrog the Iranian.
Daei - who made 148 appearances for Iran - set the former world record with his 85th international goal way back in 2003, breaking a 47-year record held by Ferenc Puskas.
The current active footballers closest to reaching Ronaldo’s 111 goal record are United Arab Emirates striker Ali Mabkhout (76 goals) and another of the very best - Lionel Messi (76 goals).
