Ronaldo has found the back of the net five times in the group stages alone, including netting twice against world champions France.

The Portugal captain, 36, scored two penalties in his nation’s 2-2 draw with France in the final Group F game at Euro 2020.

The double saw Ronaldo draw level with Iran legend Daei on 109 international goals ahead of the last-16 tie against Belgium.

And CR7 looked more than relaxed at the prospect of breaking the record as he boarded Portugal’s plane with former Real Madrid teammate Pepe.

The pair both smiled as they held a thumbs up, as Ronaldo captioned the picture: “Let’s go.”

The forward was in Hungary during the group stage but will now be in Spain for the last-16 after finishing third in Group F.

And Belgium are already working on plans to prevent Ronaldo helping Portugal continue their defence of their European crown.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld shared his belief that the best way to stop the ex-Manchester United star is to work as a team.

He said: “What’s the best way to stop Ronaldo? As a team. That has always been our strength.

“I know the media focus on Cristiano but they have so much quality.

“We should not underestimate Bernardo Silva – he’s an incredible player – and Diogo Jota.

“They have a lot of guys who can score a goal out of nowhere. We certainly do not underestimate them.”
