Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has once again written his name into football's history books, beating longstanding rival Lionel Messi to another massive goal milestone.

Click through the gallery above to see the goalscorers with most goals in official games in history, according to RSSSF.

The 34-year-old scored Portugal's only goal in A Selecao's 2-1 defeat to Ukraine on Monday night, taking his overall tally to 95 international goals.

As a consequence, he has now scored 700 goals for club and country, and joined an illustrious club of just six players who have reached the 700-goal milestone.

He beat Messi to his 700th career goal, with the Argentine currently sitting on 672 strikes for club and country.

Ronaldo has now scored 95 times for Portugal, five during the early days of his career with Sporting Lisbon, 118 for Manchester United, 450 for Real Madrid and 32 since joining Juventus.

Only five players in the history of the game have scored more, with legendary Hungary striker Josef Bican leading the world-wide scoring charts after netting 805 goals throughout his career, according to the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation (RSSSF).

Ronaldo's goal, though, was not enough to prevent Portugal from their first defeat since the 2018 FIFA World Cup. They will have to battle for their 2020 UEFA European Championship qualification, while Ukraine booked their ticket to the tournament with their victory.
