Ronaldo becomes highest scoring man in international soccer

FARO, Portugal (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo has become the highest-scoring man in the international soccer history with his 110th goal for Portugal on Wednesday. The Portugal captain scored in the 89th minute against Ireland in a World Cup qualifier, moving ahead of former Iranian striker Ali Daei. He added a second — another header — minutes later in a 2-1 victory. Earlier in the game, he had a penalty saved in the 15th minute. The 36-year-old Ronaldo was playing in his 180th game for Portugal. The forward made his debut for the national team in 2003 and began his historic scoring run at the 2004 European Championship in a 2-1 loss to Greece in the group stage.
