Ronaldo tied the achievement of former Iranian national team striker Ali Daei, who retired in 2007.
“Ronaldo really has the qualities to do it. I have a lot of respect for him. He is such a great player that it isn't even necessary to sing his praises,” Daei said earlier.
Last week, Ronaldo broke Frenchman Michel Platini's record for the most goals in the final stages of the European Championships.
