Ronaldo 700: A breakdown of CR7’s goals for club and country

Ukraine have stunned European champions Portugal 2:1 in Kyiv, sealing the top spot in Group B of UEFA European Championship Qualifiers with 19 points and leaving an nearly 70,000-strong crowd at the Olympiyskiy Stadium and millions watching the TV broadcast ecstatic. "Thank you to my team-mates, colleagues and coaches who have helped me to become the player I am".

Reflecting on his personal achievement, Ronaldo added: "How many records do I have?"

"The records come naturally", Ronaldo said. I don't know. I have to enjoy the moment and thank those who helped me reach this impressive mark.

Portugal now sit second in Group B of Euro 2020 qualifying, eight points behind Ukraine and a single point ahead of Serbia in third place.

After joining Real Madrid in what was a world-record move at the time, Ronaldo went on to win another four Ballon d'Or titles, as well as 16 major club honours and the European Championships with Portugal. "Without having an obsession, they happen naturally".

He would fire six goals as Denmark qualified for the finals in 2000, while another haul of five saw them once again qualify for Euro 2004, where he was named in the team of the tournament.

Portugal's all-time record goalscorer now has 95 goals in 162 caps for his national side, whilst he is quickly closing in on Iranian Ali Daei's record of 106 goals as the greatest goalscorer in the history of worldwide football. "We tried to react, but whenever Ukraine went forward we had difficulties". I asked them to play more with their heads [in the second half] and be stronger defensively, while keeping our concentration.

Despite the regularity of his cart-wheeling celebration in qualifiers, Keane would reach just two finals, in 2012 and 2016 where a place in the last 16 was their best finish.
