'GOAT Ronaldo Deserves My Record'

Milestones seem to come easy to superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, but there is one incredible record he is still chasing. The man who currently holds it, however, believes there is nobody who deserves this specific landmark more.

World Record Holder: I Hope Ronaldo Will Beat Me

Ronaldo holds a number of remarkable goalscoring records, including those for being the leading scorer in both Real Madrid and Portugal's history.

The Juventus forward, with 102 strikes in his national team, is closing in on Ali Daei's record of 109 goals for Iran, which makes him the leading international goalscorer of all time.

The Iranian has previously discussed the likeliness of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner overtaking his incredible landmark, and has once again tipped the ex-Manchester United forward to outscore him, but this time also described him as the "best footballer of all time".

"Nobody deserves to break my record more than Ronaldo," Daei told Kicker.

"He is, without a doubt, the best footballer of all time. I am convinced that there is a reward for the people who work hard and are determined, so he deserves it."

See below who follows Daei and Ronaldo in the ranking for the leading international goalscorers of all time!
