The man who has an addiction to grabbing the headlines, did it again as Portugal filed out against an Irish squad led by Stephen Kenny

Ronaldo had equalled the world record for the highest number of international goals at the just concluded European Championship,and went level with the former Iran forward; Ali Daei,taking his tally to 109 goals. Prior to his match against Ireland yesterday,he needed just a goal to surpass the record, and he did it. He did not just score once, but twice, bringing his tally to 111 international goals,making him the highest goal scorer in the men's international football.

He had missed from the spot in the first half of the game, after which, John Egan headed Ireland into a shocking 1-0 lead on the stroke of half-time.

However, after the break, Portugal tried to penetrate the Irish defence, the hopes of securing a win seemed impossible and the Portuguese squad were frustrated by the opposition the Ireland squad dished out.

In the 89th minute, he headed in an equalizer and went ahead to producing a stoppage time goal that was the last straw. It was a tough game and all goals were headed into the net by both teams.

In an uncontrollable ecstatic jubilation by Ronaldo, he bared his body by removing his shirt, but was booked for that. This means he would not be featured in Portugal's Sept. 7 qualifier in Azerbaijan

This result means that they now sit at the top of the table bagging 10 points after 4 games. Meanwhile, Stephen Kenny and his team face the  dashed embarrassment from the  spell of defeats that has relegated them to the bottom of the table, without a point after three games in Group A
