Cristiano Ronaldo declared that surpassing Ali Daei as the most prolific player in men’s international football is “another record for the museum”.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner drew level with Iran great on 109 international goals during Euro 2020 but had to wait until Wednesday to make top spot his own. 

After seeing a first-half penalty saved in the World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland at the Estadio Algarve, Ronaldo restored parity with his landmark goal in the 89th minute. 

The Portugal captain then steered home a header deep in second-half stoppage time to complete a 2-1 turnaround win for the hosts. 

“It’s another record for the museum,” Ronaldo told RTP, as quoted by Diario Record. 

“I don’t know if anyone has more records than me, but this is mine and it’s unique. I’m extremely happy. 

“The secret is the motivation and the desire to continue playing football. It’s getting up every day with a desire to do better, to make the fans, the family, my children happy. 

“I dedicate it to all Portuguese people, to the team, to my family.”
