The greatest footballer of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the most capped footballer in international history with his 197th appearance for Portugal. Another incredible record by goat 🐐 –
Cristano Rolando put his nightmare World Cup behind him with a brace on his first appearance for Portugal as they cruised past Liechtenstein in their Euro 2024 qualifying opener with a 4-0 win.
The former Manchester United star – who thought he had got a touch on the opener before it was given to Joao Cancelo – netted a third from the penalty spot after Bernardo Silva had fired in the second, before smashing in a trademark free kick to make this a routine opening win in qualifying.
New boss Roberto Martinez started Ronaldo from the off having been benched by former manager Fernando Santos, and he did not disappoint his boss as he delivered the goods to get Portugal up and running.
