Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals to equal the all-time international goalscoring record and help holders Portugal edge into the last 16 of Euro 2020 with a 2-2 draw against France in Budapest on Wednesday.

Portugal will face the world’s top-ranked side Belgium in the first knockout round in Seville on Sunday.

Ronaldo set more records on the night he netted two goals against France at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

It was the first time he broke his goal drought against the French team and he made it a double.

He has now equalled the 109 international goal record held by Iran legend Ali Daei.

He is also now the leading goal scorer in Euro championships, with 13 in all. He has five more goals than previous record-holder Michel Platini.

Ronaldo is also the leading goal scorer in the Euro and World Cup combined. He has a total haul of 21 goals.

He has surpassed former Germany striker Miroslav Klose, who managed 19 goals over his career at the two tournaments.

With records at Real Madrid, Portugal national team, Champions League, Ronaldo justifiably should be soccer’s GOAT.
