Cristiano Ronaldo has become Europe’s all-time leading international scorer with 85 goals after he headed in Portugal’s opening strike in their World Cup Group B match against Morocco on Wednesday.

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in Portugal’s dramatic 3-3 draw against Spain on Friday to match Hungarian great Ferenc Puskas as Europe’s record top scorer with 84 goals.

The 33-year-old Real Madrid forward scored in the fourth minute against Morocco to give Portugal the early lead.

The Portuguese is now only behind Ali Daei of Iran, on 109 goals, in the global all-time scoring charts.
