Cristiano Ronaldo crossed the mark of 100 international goals when he scored twice in Portugal's 2-0 win over Sweden in a UEFA Nations League match on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Juventus attacker reached the milestone on the stroke of half-time as he curled a free-kick into the top corner from 25 metres, while the bonus second goal came in the 72nd minute.

With 101 goals, Ronaldo is second only to Iran's Ali Daei (109) in the list of top men's international goal scorers.

Since making his senior international debut as an 18-year-old in 2003, Ronald has been capped 165 times by Portugal.
