Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th and 101st international goals for Portugal to help the country cruise into a 2-0 victory over ten-men Sweden in the UEFA Nations League match played on Tuesday.

Ronaldo, 35, grasped his 100th goal in the 44th minute with a 25-yard free kick that found the top corner of the net, but the second goal of the night came in the second half.

His trademark celebration followed as he spinned  joyfully towards the Portugal bench to celebrate with Santos and the substitutes.

The brace make Ronaldo the first ever European player to achieve the 100-goal landmark.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is also the second male footballer ever to achieve the feat after Ali Daei of Iran, who scored 109 in his career.
