Cristiano Ronaldo Made Guinness World Record After Being First Male Player to Play 200 International Matches

Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal’s star striker, is on the brink of creating history as he prepares to reach the extraordinary milestone of 200 international appearances for his country. The 38-year-old football legend, currently playing for Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, will achieve this feat during Portugal’s Euro 2024 qualifying match against Iceland. Ronaldo is determined to emphasize this record and has made it clear that he has no plans to retire from international football voluntarily.

Ronaldo has been in excellent form, scoring four goals in three games under new coach Roberto Martinez. Although he was unable to find the back of the net in Portugal’s recent victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina, the all-time international leading goal scorer with 122 goals remains motivated to perform at the highest level for his national team.

His anticipation of reaching this significant milestone reflects his unwavering dedication and love for his country and team. During a press conference in Reykjavik, Ronaldo expressed his sentiments, stating that he will never give up representing Portugal because it’s always been his dream. Reaching 200 international matches is a testament to the deep love he has for his country and the national team.

Portugal has been dominant in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, sitting comfortably at the top of Group J with three consecutive wins and an impressive goal tally of 13 without conceding. Ronaldo’s presence and contributions have played a vital role in their success.

Coach Roberto Martinez recognizes the magnitude of Ronaldo’s achievement, emphasizing that reaching 200 international games is a proud and unique moment for Portuguese football. The match against Iceland will be a celebration for both Ronaldo and the team.
