Cristiano Ronaldo breaks ANOTHER scoring record as Portugal star breaks silence after winning Man Utd player of year

CRISTIANO RONALDO has achieved another incredible milestone while playing for Portugal.

The Manchester United star bagged twice as his country trounced Switzerland 4-0 in the Nations League.

Ronaldo, 37, has now scored an incredible 117 goals in 187 appearances for Portugal.

Astonishingly, his efforts against the Swiss saw him become the first male player in history to score 100 non-penalty goals for their country.

The forward opened his account for his country at Euro 2004 in his country's opener against future winners Greece.

Ronaldo will have the opportunity to further add to his tally this month, with Portugal hosting the Czech Republic on Thursday before travelling to Switzerland on Sunday.
