Ronaldo bags Guinness world record for attaining 200 caps

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has proven again that age doesn’t matter in his ability on the pitch in a dramatic EURO qualifier 1-0 win over Iceland.

His achievement has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records and he was presented with a certificate for his accomplishment before the match against Iceland.

Ronaldo’s only goal secured the victory on his historic night as he became the first men’s player to win 200 international caps.

The 38-year-old turned home Goncalo Inacio’s header from close range.

The goal was initially ruled out for an Inacio offside but was later awarded by the video assistant referee.

That was Ronaldo’s 123rd international goal, extending his world record.
