Statto! Stat enthusiasts are in for a treat as Ronaldo records are revealed

Following his two goals for Portugal in yesterday’s Nations League game against Sweden, record breaking Ronaldo can add his 100+ international goals to an impressive list of accomplishments.

WHEN Ronaldo burst onto the scene as a Manchester United player in 2003, following his transfer move from Sporting Lisbon, not many could have predicted how successful the Portuguese star was going to be.

Pace, trickery and a thunderous right foot has made him a goal scoring machine and his records show the extent of his prowess.

Starting out as a winger for United, it soon became apparent that he was so much more than an assist provider as he progressively moved further up the pitch.

The 35-year-old scored goals 100 and 101 against Sweden to become the first European player to reach 100 international goals.

But this is not the end of his achievements, so sit back and enjoy some impressive Ronaldo stats.
