Century of international goals: FIFA President, Pele, others pay homage to Ronaldo

FIFA president, Gianni Infantino and football legends across the world have congratulated Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo for his record-breaking feat of 100 international goals mark.

All eyes were on Ronaldo when he hunted down a century of international goals in Portugal’s UEFA Nations League match against Sweden.

Typically, he not only reached that milestone but passed it – and in some style. Ronaldo’s brilliant brace established him as just the second male player to break through the 100-goal mark as he continues to close in on the record held in men’s football by Iran legend Ali Daei (109).
