Cristiano Ronaldo scores two goals in seven minutes to break Ali Daeli's record of 109 goals

Cristiano Ronaldo has officially become the men's all time leading international goal scorer after scoring twice in seven minutes against Ireland in Portugal's World Cup qualifying games.

Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty miss in 15th minute became more crucial after Ireland took the lead before halftime. However, the Portuguese superstar scored two headers at the closing minutes of the game to earn his side a 2-1 win over Ireland.

Ronaldo equalled Ali Daeli's record of 109 international goals during the EURO 2020 and has now broken that record with 111 international goals to his name.

The Manchester United superstar was also presented with the EURO 2020 top scorer award which he claimed defeating Czech Republic striker, Patrik Schick who has the same number of goals with him on assists.

Cristiano Ronaldo may finally make his first appearance for Manchester United for more than 12 years in their next Premier League game against Newcastle.
