Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal against Morocco to score his fourth goal of the World Cup and send yet another goal-scoring milestone tumbling in the process.

With just four minutes played, the 33-year-old went stooping through the six-yard box to head home Bernardo Silva’s corner…

In scoring, Ronaldo bagged his 85th goal for Portugal and moved past Ferenc Puskas (84) to become the highest European goal-scorer in the history of international football.

The world record is still held by the legendary Ali Daei, who amassed 109 goals for Iran over the course of his career.

You can bet your life that Ronaldo has one eye on that one, too.

Indeed, the way he’s been banging them in at the World Cup, we’d have a shilling on him at least bringing up his ton before the tournament is over.
