Cristiano Ronaldo, in Portugal’s 3-0 victory over Qatar in a friendly match in Faro (Portugal), set a new record by becoming the player with the most appearances in a European national team. CR7 wore the Portugal shirt for the 181st time, beating the Spaniard Sergio Ramos. The former Juventus player opened the scoring with a penalty. It was the 112th goal with the Lusitanian selection shirt: further improved the world record for goals in a national team that he had already beaten last month against Ireland.
The previous record belonged to the Iranian Ali Dei with 109 centers. Currently second in Group A of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, with 13 points, Portugal will try on Tuesday at home against Luxembourg to regain the advantage over Serbia, from this evening leaders of the Group thanks to a 1-0 victory over Luxembourg.
