Penalty miss spoils Cristiano Ronaldo’s party

Cristiano Ronaldo may have added another record to his collections by making a milestone 128th Portugal appearance against Austria on Saturday but the Portuguese will not be happy with his performance on the night.

Cristiano Ronaldo had the opportunity of marking his milestone with what would have been the only goal on the night but the Real Madrid super star missed from the spot kick and also had a goal ruled out for offside.

Ronaldo drew level with previous record-holder Luis Figo when he played in the 1-1 draw with Euro 2016 Group F opponents Iceland on Tuesday.

The Real Madrid star now take sole possession of the benchmark when he stepped onto the pitch in Paris in his sides goalless draw against Austria.

It has been almost 13 years since Ronaldo made his senior international debut as a second-half substitute in a 1-0 victory over Kazakhstan in August 2003.

The 31-year-old has been Portugal’s permanent captain since 2008 and is also his nation’s record goalscorer with 58 strikes.
