The Portugal captain found the back of the net in a friendly against Andorra that saw him reach on overall tally of 102 goals.

The 35-year-old became the first European footballer to net more than 100 times for his national team during the September international break when he scored a brace against Sweden.

He failed to add to his tally during the most recent international break after featuring in 0-0 draws against Spain and France before being sent home following a positive COVID-19 test.

However, he has now closed in further on Daei's world record with his goal in Portugal's friendly against Andorra on Wednesday.
