Cristiano Ronaldo reaches 100 goal milestone in Portugal's win against Sweden

The Portuguese scored a double in the matchday 2 of UEFA Nations League.

Portugal won the UEFA Nations League fixture against Sweden 2-0, with talisman Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a double.

The Juventus ace also reached the milestone of scoring 100 international goals – the second player in history to do it – with the first goal.

Ronaldo started the game after missing the previous fixture against Croatia due to toe infection.

He opened the scoring with a fantastic free kick on the brink of the half-time whistle and followed up with another goal in the second half to register 101 goals in his career.

However, Ronaldo is still trailing Ali Daei, who has scored 109 goals for Iran. The Portuguese ace reached the milestone in 165 appearances.

The 35-year-old had concluded a fine goal-scoring season in Serie A, ending up as the league’s second-highest goalscorer after Ciro Immobile. The former Los Blancos star scored a tally of 33 goals while ending up short in the Golden Boot race.

Nonetheless, the Bianconeri got eliminated in the round of 16 against Lyon despite Ronaldo’s best efforts.

Portugal have produced another clinical display following 4-1 win over Croatia in the Matchday 1 of Nations League.

The defending Champions are looking in fine form and will face France next month.

Meanwhile, it’s back-to-back defeats for Swede as they failed to capitalize with the presence of two young prospects Dejan Kulusevski and Alexander Isak.
