The latter two met in the final of Euro 2016 when an extra-time winner from Eder gave Portugal a memorable victory.

How many goals has Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Portugal?

With more than 100 international goals to his name and a host of records, the Juventus striker pursues another milestone.

Iran’s Ali Daei scored 109 goals in 149 caps during his career before retiring in 2006 and the record is something Ronaldo, 35, has been looking for.

Speaking in November when he scored the No.99 goal for Portugal, he said: “All records have to be broken and I will beat that record.”

Ronaldo, who helped Portugal win Euros 2016 and the Nations League last summer, now has 101 goals in 166 appearances.
