A Selecao were in fine form in their 4-1 win over Croatia in their UEFA Nations League clash last week, a game the five-time Ballon d'Or winner missed through injury.
That display led to many wondering if the team plays with more coherence without him, although he returned against Sweden to score an incredible brace, with his first strike bringing up his 100th international goal.
After the game, the 35-year-old insisted he has nothing left to prove, and that he does his talking out on the field.
"I didn't follow the comments. It's an opinion," he said, according to Goal.
"I knew I had left a mark at this stadium and I knew that, if I played, I would leave a mark again. I don't care about provocations.
"What I have done in my career speaks for itself. No, I have to prove nothing to anyone, and when I have to prove it, I show it on the pitch."
Ronaldo also said he is delighted to have brought up such a remarkable milestone.
"I am very happy. Firstly, because the team won, which was the goal we had. Then the 100 mark and then the 101, with two goals, makes me very happy," he added.
"Now the future is only for God. I feel good, I feel good for playing with these young players."
Ronaldo is now the leading European goalscorer in international football history, and is just eight goals away from equalling Ali Daei's world record.
