What a moment for Ronaldo, though, unfortunately for Portugal, Ukraine won the match to clinch a spot at Euro 2020. Portugal is still in good shape to qualify, however. The team is in second place in the group with Lithuania and Luxembourg in November, and just one win there will be enough.

Here's how Ronaldo's goals break down by team:

  • Sporting: 5
  • Manchester United: 118
  • Real Madrid: 450
  • Juventus: 32
  • Portugal: 95

Ronaldo's 95 international goals put him within 14 of the all-time record held by Iran's Ali Daei. 

He's the sixth player to each 700 goals, joining Pele, Ferenc Puskas, Gerd Muller, Romario and Josef Mican. 

In case you are wondering, Lionel Messi has 672.
