Cristiano Ronaldo featured in Portugal’s Euro fixture against Slovakia tonight and we got to see the former Manchester United forward score a penalty kick to inspire his side to a narrow 3-2 win at home. The 38 year-old didn’t play impressively in the match despite scoring two goals, as he missed a lot of decent chances from open play. But he was able to set a new record with the goals he scored tonight, as Fabrizio Romano confirmed on his twitter page that the Al-Nassr star has netted 72 (plus 1) international goals since he turned 30 years of age.
International goals are one aspect Cristiano Ronaldo surpasses his rivals and tonight he proved why he excels in that area. His fans took note of his two goals in the game and praised him for helping his country secure the win against Slovakia.
