Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo has made history as the first European player to reach 100 international goals in the ongoing Nations League.

Ronaldo scored with a brace as Portugal won 2-0 in Sweden, who finished with 10 men, Evening Standard reports.

Before the former Manchester United player achieved the feat of becoming only the second player in history to reach a century of strikes on the world stage, he scored to reach 101 international goals.

Meanwhile, it was not an easy one for Sweden as Veteran midfielder Gustav Svensson was sent off just before half-time for collecting a second yellow card.

In the course of the game, the former Real Madrid star Ronaldo, scored a scintillating free-kick by firing the ball into the top corner of his opponent’s goal post.

The Juventus star still proved that he could score more goals after 72 minutes by curling in a second goal from the edge of the penalty area to leave him just eight goals behind Iran’s Ali Daei, who holds the record at 109 strikes.

 

So far, Portugal have two wins from their opening Nations League fixtures, and top the table ahead of France, who beat Croatia 4-2 in Saint-Denis.
