Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his world-record 197th men's international appearance by scoring twice as Portugal thrashed Liechtenstein in their Euro 2024 qualifying opener.

The 38-year-old has now scored a men's record 120 international goals.

He made his international debut in 2003 and in Qatar last year became the first man to score in five World Cups.

Ronaldo had moved level with Kuwait forward Bader Al-Mutawa on 196 caps at the World Cup but there were question marks over his international future after Portugal's elimination by Morocco at the quarter-final stage.
