The Juventus superstar was a sub as Portugal thrash Andorra 7-0 in a friendly.


Cristiano Ronaldo moved one goal closer to the all-time international goalscoring record in men’s football as Portugal beat Andorra.

Ronaldo, 35, scored his 102nd goal for his country with a powerful header and is now seven behind the record of Iran’s Ali Daei.

Wolves forward Pedro Neto also scored on his debut – one of five Wanderers players in the Portugal squad.

A header in the 85th minute took his tally to 102 goals at international level, just seven away from equalling current record holder Ali Daei.

With 127 places in the latest Fifa rankings between Portugal (seven) and Andorra (134), the logic of a friendly before two rounds of Nations League matches could be questionable.

Juventus forward Ronaldo was left on the bench as a precaution after picking up an ankle injury against Lazio last weekend and replaced Neto at the break.

He scored Portugal’s sixth goal with five minutes left with a thumping header.

Portugal boss Fernando Santos chose to rest his big guns ahead of the Nations League clash with France on Saturday, with Ronaldo joined by the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Diogo Jota and Joao Felix on the bench.
