Ronaldo sets record with opener against Russia


Cristiano Ronaldo has established another astounding landmark with his goal for Portugal against Russia in the FIFA Confederations Cup.

He has done it again! Ronaldo never gets tired, does he? The 32-year-old forward, after a quick passage of play from midfield, ended up heading home a perfectly executed cross from Raphael Guerrero to give his side an emphatic 1:0 lead.

The goal, which takes his all-time tally for the Seleccao to 74, is also his 13th goal in his last eight international games. Furthermore, the strike also mean Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored in all three major international competitions he’s played in (World Cup, Euros and Confederations Cup).

The Portuguese skipper is now the first-ever player to score in eight consecutive international competitions. He is just one goal away from becoming joint-second on Europe’s all-time international top goalscorers list. Absolutely relentless!
