Ronaldo entered the match with 164 caps and 99 goals, scoring his 100th on a brilliant free kick that went over the wall and into the upper corner of the goal.

What a moment for Ronaldo, and it’s wild to think likes of Lionel Messi, Pele, Ronaldo of Brazil, and others never managed to reach the feat.

Canada’s Christine Sinclair holds the women’s record with 186 international goals.
