The Portuguese superstar became only the second footballer to score 100 goals at international level on Tuesday night, following in the footsteps of Iran legend Ali Daei.

Ronaldo, who also scored his 101st goal in Portugal's 2-0 UEFA Nations League win over Sweden, is now just eight strikes shy of Daei's world record of 109 goals at international level.

The 35-year-old's latest achievement left many fans and experts in awe, with several current and former players sending the Portuguese congratulatory messages.

"I thought we were going to celebrate 100 goals today. But it was actually 101! Congratulations Cristiano, as you reach new heights in your journey," three-time FIFA World Cup winner Pele wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, FIFA president Infantino sent the European record goalscorer an SMS that was later published on FIFA's website.

"Congratulations, Cristiano! More than 100 goals with your national team! A fantastic record from a living legend of world football such as you are. Hope to congratulate in person soon. All the best. Gianni," it read.
