Cristiano Ronaldo has become the most capped men's player in international football after making his 197th appearance for Portugal against Liechtenstein in their Euro 2024 qualifying match on Thursday.

Ronaldo, 38, was denied the chance to break the record at the World Cup in Qatar as Portugal crashed out in the quarterfinals with a 1-0 defeat to Morocco.

The Al Nassr striker was tied with Kuwait's Bader Al-Mutawa on 196 appearances before he was named in new Portugal boss Roberto Martinez' first squad since taking charge of the Euro 2016 champions.
