Cristiano Ronaldo scores 100th international goal for Portugal vs Sweden in Uefa Nations League

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 100th international goal for Portugal against Sweden. 

Ronaldo is the first ever European player to bring up the milestone.

The European champions took the lead after the Juventus superstar struck on minutes before half-time in Stockholm.

The 35-year-old produced a spectacular free-kick to give Fernando Santos’ side the lead in his 165th cap for his country.

Ronaldo is just the second male player to achieve the milestone, following Ali Daei of Iran (109).

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will now hope to surpass Daei and become the leading male scorer in international football history.

The goal against Sweden was his 10th direct free-kick for the Selecao.

Ronaldo sent the free-kick, positioned centrally, high over the wall, dipping viciously into the top left corner. 

His trademark celebration followed as he wheeled away in delight towards the Portugal bench to celebrate with Santos and the substitutes.
