Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo holds a number of incredible records

Ronaldo shows no signs of slowing down despite approaching his 36th birthday.

Last month, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored his 100th, and 101st, Portugal goal in their 2-0 Nations League win over Sweden.

It was a trademark Ronaldo free-kick from long-range that sealed it as he became just the second man to reach a century of goals for his country.

The only man who has more is Iran’s Ali Daei who scored 109 in 149 games between 1993 and 2006.
