Cristiano Ronaldo speaks out after breaking all-time international scoring record in thrilling Portugal win over Republic of Ireland
The Metro says Ronaldo endured a nightmare start to Wednesday’s thrilling World Cup qualifier as he had an early penalty saved by teenage goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu before John Egan nodded the visitors in front on the stroke of half-time.
However, Ronaldo, so often the man for the big occasion, left it late with a pair of towering headers in the 89th and 96th minutes to seal all three points for Portugal and send the Estadio Algarve crowd into raptures, capping off a memorable week in the wake of his return to Manchester United.
The veteran attacker had been level with Ali Daei’s tally of 109 goals prior to kick-off and his sensational brace put him out in front of the Iranian with 111 goals from 180 games for his country.
