    On Wednesday, the 36-year-old Portuguese scored his 108th and 109th goals for the national team in the UEFA European Championship match against France, converting two penalties.

    Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 109th career goal for the Portuguese national football team, tying the world record for the most international goals.

    With 13 European Championship goals and 7 World Cup goals, Ronaldo is now the record European goalscorer in major tournaments.

    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.
