Ronaldo Breaks New Record In Portugal’s Latest Victory

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, on Thursday, broke another international record following his side’s Euro 2024 qualifying 4-0 win over Liechtenstein.

Ronaldo made his 197th appearance for Portugal during the game against Liechtenstein, which puts him outright as the leading appearance maker in men’s international football.

Previously, the Al-Nassr forward had been tied with Bader Al-Mutawa of Kuwait, but the former Manchester United star now holds the record alone.
