Cristiano Ronaldo is the all-time top goalscorer for the Portugal national football team and has the most international goals among currently active players. As of 10 September 2019, he has scored 93 goals in 160 appearances since his debut on 20 August 2003.[1]

On 5 March 2014, he scored twice in Portugal's 5–1 friendly win over Cameroon to take his tally to 49 goals, thus becoming his country's all-time leading goalscorer, surpassing the 47 set by Pauleta.[2] On 14 November 2014, he scored the only goal in a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match against Armenia, his 23rd in European Championship matches. This surpassed the record previously held by Turkey's Hakan Şükür and Denmark's Jon Dahl Tomasson.[3] On 20 June 2018, he scored his 85th goal for Portugal in a 1–0 win over Morocco at the World Cup, surpassing Hungary's Ferenc Puskás as the all-time top scorer for a European national team.[4] He has scored eight international hat-tricks and on two occasions, four international goals in a single match.[1]

Ronaldo has participated in ten major tournaments: four UEFA European Championships in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016, four FIFA World Cups in 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018, one FIFA Confederations Cup in 2017, and one UEFA Nations League Finals in 2019, scoring in all of them.[1] Following Portugal's win at UEFA Euro 2016, Ronaldo lifted the trophy as his team's captain,[5] and was also awarded the Silver Boot as the joint second-highest goalscorer of the tournament, with three goals and three assists;[6] he was also named to the team of the tournament for the third time in his career.[7][8][9] He has scored nine goals at the European Championships, seven at the World Cup finals, three in the UEFA Nations League and two at the Confederations Cup.[1] Ronaldo has scored 30 goals in FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and 25 in UEFA Euro qualifiers, hence becoming the first player to score 50 goals in European qualifiers.[10] His other 17 goals have come in friendly matches. The opponents against whom he has scored most often are Armenia, Andorra, Latvia and Sweden with five goals.[1] He has scored nine international goals at Lisbon's Estádio da Luz, his most at a single ground.
