A Seleção Star’s Comeback: How Many Goals Has Cristiano Ronaldo Scored For Portugal?

The Portuguese player has scored many goals for his country since opening his account in 2004. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest players the game has ever seen. There we said it. The Manchester United star is the all-time leading international goalscorer in the world and holds many other records at the club and international levels.

For the national team, it all started in 2003 when Ronaldo made his debut against Kazakhstan in August 2003. Primarily playing as a winger, Ronaldo scored his first goal for Portugal at a high level in a friendly 1-2 loss to Greece at the 2004 Euro Championship. That turned out to be the start of an international scoring record and Ronaldo scored at will.
