Cristiano Ronaldo Sets A New World Record After He Scored In Yesterday's Match

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveir is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and captains the Portugal national team. 

Ronaldo scored in yesterday's match as Portugal beat Qatar with a 3-0 win in a friendly match.

The Portuguese legend scored his 112th goal for Portugal, as they won Qatar ahead of their World Cup qualification fixture next week.

This earned Ronaldo the record for the most international goals scorer in men's international football and would possibly break other records in the nearby future.

Surprisingly, Ronaldo has now scored against 46 different nations, which is the most in football history. This legend has scored against almost all the nations he face in any international competition, both friendly match and UEFA competition or the FIFA World Cup.

Remember, at 36 years, Cristiano Ronaldo is still appearing in the Portuguese squad, there are players whom their nations abandoned them after they clocked 35. Ronaldo scored a brace in the last international break while scoring a winning goal.

His goal yesterday was his third goal for Portugal in just two games.
