Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo says he ‘promised that I would always be looking for more and more and more’ after he extended his international goalscoring record.Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 115th international goal – extending his incredibly impressive goalscoring record.
Ronaldo netted a hat-trick, the tenth of his international career, while fellow club star Bruno Fernandes bagged an assist and a goal of his own as the Portuguese ran riot in a 5-0 victory against Luxembourg – sending United fans into meltdown.He has now become the first player in men’s international football to score 10 hat-tricks for his country.
The Portuguese international broke the all-time international goals scored feat last month, which was previously held by Iran forward Ali Daei.Shortly after his return to Old Trafford earlier this year, Ronaldo equalised in the 89th minute against Ireland to score his 110th goal for Portugal, bettering Daei’s record by one.
The Manchester United forward then scored again deep into stoppage time to complete a sensational comeback for his nation and extend his record to 111 international goals and bagged his 112th goal with a left-footed effort in the 37th minute of his nation’s friendly against Qatar on Saturday night.
Following the game, Ronaldo spoke of the ‘historic night’, praising the fans as he revealed his promise to ‘always be looking for more and more and more’.In a post on Instagram, Ronaldo wrote: “Another victory, another step towards our goal, another historic night in defense of our colors!
“Everything becomes easier when we play at home and in front of an audience that cares for us from the first to the last minute….“I had promised that I would always be looking for more and more and more!
“It’s in my DNA and in our DNA, we’re never content, we never lower our arms and we always go.
