Cristiano, by far and away Portugal’s most capped participant, is at present tied on 109 for many senior worldwide objectives, with Iran’s Ali Daei, though he’ll little doubt go on to interrupt that mark – maybe it may even occur later this week.
No participant has scored in opposition to extra worldwide sides (43). They’re – deep breath –: Andorra, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia, Cameroon, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Eire, North Korea, Panama, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, Wales.
The Portuguese does maintain the file for worldwide hat-tricks (9), together with one for Portugal in opposition to Spain on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which made him the competitors’s oldest treble scorer.
Ronaldo is the primary footballer to have performed at 5 European Championships: 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2020 (accomplished in 2021). Naturally, he scored in each single one.
Add in Cristiano’s World Cup, Confederations Cup and Nations League appearances, and he’s the one participant to make the scoresheet in 12 consecutive worldwide tournaments.
