Cristiano Ronaldo’s records keep stacking up. The Portuguese international became the first men’s football player to make 200 international appearances. CR7 celebrated that milestone by scoring the winning goal in the 89th minute as Portugal beat Iceland 1-0 in a European Championship qualifier.

Ronaldo scored the only goal in the game on Tuesday against Iceland, who played with ten men after Willum Williamson was sent off with 10 minutes to go in the Euro 2024 qualifier.

Overtaking Kuwait forward Bader Al-Mutawa’s 196-cap record in March, the 38-year-old Ronaldo was honored by Guinness World Records before kickoff on Tuesday for reaching 200 games for Portugal almost 20 years after he made his debut for the national side.

And he was celebrating at the end of the match, too, after being on hand to score the later winner against Iceland from close range to keep Portugal on track for Euro 2024 qualification with the Portuguese team’s fourth win from four games in Group J. This goal added to Ronaldo stats, further solidifying his incredible record-breaking career.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s record padded his international goals on Tuesday by netting his 123rd for Portugal – making it another memorable night for the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s record-breaking adventures have been ongoing since his time in Manchester. Here is a list of his other records that he has broke!
