Cristiano Ronaldo matched up Ali Daei's 109 goals record for the national team after scoring a brace against France in their Euro 2020 last group game at the Puskas Arena on Wednesday, June 23.

The 36-year-old needs just one goal to become the player with the most international goals and with Portugal facing Belgium in their last 16 game, he could achieve that feat.

But, there seems to be more for the Juventus striker who has practically broken almost all the records in men's football.
