Ronaldo opened his goal account for the night against Sweden as he curled the ball I o the top left corner of the post from a free-kick following a foul from outside the box.

He added another in the 72nd minute of the game to make it 2-0 through a sublime shot from outside the box beating Robin Olsen.

The 35-year-old said he is ready to go for the record while stating he is not obsessed with reaching that landmark.

“I managed to beat this milestone of 100 goals and now [I’ll go] for the record. It’s step-by-step. I am not obsessed because I believe the records come in a natural way,” Ronaldo said after the match.
