- Story Text: Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 700th career goal with a penalty during Portugal's 2-1 loss in Kiev against Ukraine in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Monday (October 14).
It's the Portuguese star's 95th international strike to go along with five career goals at Sporting Lisbon, 118 at Manchester United, 450 at Real Madrid and 32 and counting at current club Juventus.
Despite Ronaldo's phenomenal personal milestone, the 2-1 defeat piled pressure on the defending champions, who now sit second in group B, just above Serbia, who edged Lithuania 2-1, with four qualifiers remaining.
