Ronaldo Breaks Another Record

Cristiano Ronaldo has set another record, this time for his home country Portugal, becoming their leading all-time goal scorer for the national team.

Ronaldo’s two strikes in Portugal’s 5-1 thrashing over Cameroon were his goals 48 and 49 for his home country. Making his debut in 2003, he became the lonely all-time scorer with his first goal, overtaking Pauleta who had scored 47, on Wednesday night.

The 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or winner, making his 110th appearance for Portugal, opened the score-line in minute 21 and finished off a successful night with his second and his side’s fifth in minute 83.

The Portuguese superstar, however, wasn’t fussed by the new record, saying: “I don’t worry about breaking records.

“It’s something that happens naturally, with lots of dedication.”

The 29-year-old scored 10 goals in nine games for Portugal in 2013, including a hat-trick against Sweden in the play-off to book his country’s ticket for this year’s World Cup.

The two goals took Ronaldo’s total this season to 42 goals in 37 games, which means he is well on track to break his personal best of 66 goals in the 2011-12 season.
