While helping Portugal grab a victory over 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar, Cristiano Ronaldo made a bit more history at Sergio Ramos’ expense.
Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed former Real Madrid teammate Sergio Ramos as the most capped men’s European player in international football.
Ronaldo marked his milestone night in style by scoring his 112th international goal to hand Portugal the lead. He came off at half-time for international debutant Rafael Leao.
Jose Fonte and Andre Silva later added two more goals in the second half to seal a solid win in Algarve for Fernando Santos’ men.
Portugal return to action on Tuesday for a World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg. If Ronaldo plays, he’ll earn his 182nd cap – leaving him just 13 caps shy of Malaysia player Soh Chin Ann’s world record of 195.
