Watch Cristiano Ronaldo’s crushing volley to move up Europe’s all-time scorer list

Portugal dominated Latvia with an emphatic 4-1 win in World Cup qualifying on Sunday, but it was captain Cristiano Ronaldo who stole the show.

He completed a brace with an excellent, flying volley that is surely a keeper for his international highlight reel. Check it out:


The strike was Ronaldo’s 68th international goal, which moves him up to fourth place on Europe’s all-time goal-scorer list. That puts him level with Gerd Müller and Robbie Keane.

Considering that Ronaldo is 31 and still playing at a very high level, there’s good reason to think he can continue his way up that list. Ronaldo has gone on record that he wants to play until he is 41, after all. If he can hit 71 international goals, he’ll match Miroslav Klose and if he gets to 77, then he’ll equal the legendary Pelé.

With Portugal’s win over Latvia, they sit three points back from Switzerland in Group B of UEFA World Cup qualifying as the Swiss team continued their perfect run on Sunday.
