With the exception of Iran legend Ali Daei, the only player to come within 20 goals of Ronaldo's remarkable record, which he has achieved in 165 global appearances, is Hungary and Spain legend Ferenc Puskas, who retired in 1966. Firstly, because the team won, which was the goal we had. "101 goals for Portugal".

Felix, the protégé, played the ball into the path of Ronaldo who made no mistakes and scored his 101st goal with a sensational finish right past a diving Olsen.

Cristiano Ronaldo, however, says it is like going to the circus and not seeing any clowns.

Ronaldo's latest goals were scored at Sweden's Friends Arena as Portugal followed up their 4-1 win over Croatia with the 2-0 victory over the Swedes.
