Cristiano Ronaldo became the hero when he scored the only goal of the match to bring 3 points back to Portugal.

In the 89th minute, Goncalo Inacio headed the ball to assist Ronaldo, who quickly scored and beat goalkeeper Runar Runarsson.

The referee immediately blew the whistle when he thought the Portuguese player was offside but later recognized the goal thanks to consultation with VAR technology.

On the day he set a Guinness record for the number of appearances for the national team, Ronaldo helped Portugal win all 3 points to continue to top Group J with 12 absolute points, exactly two points more than competitor Slovakia. .

Slovakia in this series won Liechtenstein 1-0. They are Portugal’s next opponents, but it won’t be until September that the two teams will have the opportunity to face each other.

As for Ronaldo, he officially reached the milestone of 200 matches in his career for the Portuguese national team, surpassing Bader Al-Mutawa’s old record of 196 matches for the Kuwait team.

The goal against Iceland in this match became even more meaningful for the star who turned 38 this year.

This is also Ronaldo’s 123rd goal for Portugal since his debut in August 2003 in a friendly match against Kazakhstan.

123 goals for the team is also another record for Ronaldo, who has faced 70 different international opponents since he first joined the team 20 years ago.

Nearly 20 years have passed, CR7 has participated in every major international tournament since EURO 2004 (including 5 EUROs and 5 World Cups), winning the EURO 2016 and Nations League championships in 2019.

With his form and desire not stopping, Cristiano Ronaldo will definitely want to have more matches with Portugal to conquer new milestones in his career.

Ronaldo became the first player in the sport to reach the milestone of 200 international matches.

This is an important milestone that no player has ever reached in the history of football. In fact, Ronaldo only broke his own record.

Not only has Ronaldo played the most, he is also the player who scored the most goals in history at the national level (122 goals), 13 goals more than second-placed Ali Daei and 19 goals more than Lionel Messi.
