Cristiano Ronaldo has already taken one record after another in recent years and on Saturday the Portuguese added yet another new copy to his collection. After all, in the friendly match against Qatar, he only became the record holder in terms of the number of international matches for a European country.
Ronaldo had already matched Sergio Ramos in September and now he has passed his ex-team-mate. After all, Ronaldo kicked off against the Qataris and took his 181st cap for Portugal. He also celebrated that opportunity by giving his team the lead before half-time. In the second half, Fonte and André Silva increased the score to 3-0.
Ronaldo will not immediately reach the total record. According to VI, that is in the name of Malaysian Soh Chin Ann, who played no fewer than 219 international matches for his country.
