Manchester United have congratulated their former winger Cristiano Ronaldo after he scored his 100th and 101st goals for Portugal.

The Juventus forward became the second male player to reach the landmark of 100 international goals when he netted a brace in Portugal’s 2-0 win over Sweden in the Nations League.

Ronaldo is chasing down Ali Daei’s world-record tally of 109 goals for Iran.

The 35-year-old opened the scoring with a stunning free-kick from 25 yards, giving his side a 1-0 advantage going into half-time.

The captain then doubled the lead with another brilliant curling effort from the edge of the box to hand Portugal all three points in their Nations League clash.

The footballing icon spent six successful years at Old Trafford, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League and an FA Cup.

He also picked up the first of his five Ballon d’Or trophies in 2008, scoring 31 league goals in Sir Alex Ferguson’s title-winning side that season.
