Cristiano Ronaldo Recognized As A World Record Breaker By Guinness World Record; Player Receives Certificate

Manchester United new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo has been recognized as a world record breaker by Guinness World Record after he broke an international record.

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the world record for goals scored in men’s international football as he hit his 110th and 111th goals for Portugal in their dramatic 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over the Republic of Ireland.

The 36-year-old scored two late headers – to break and extend the record – after he had a penalty saved by Gavin Bazunu.

Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals for Iran between 1993 and 2006, held the record which Ronaldo equalled with a double against France at Euro 2020.

The Manchester United forward has also equalled Sergio Ramos’ European record for men’s caps – with his 180th Portugal appearance.

The world record – only ratified by Fifa this summer – is the 195 Malaysia caps won by Soh Chin Ann between 1969 and 1984.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who rejoined United from Juventus on deadline day, and Daei are the only two male players to score 90 or more international goals.

Following his success, the Guinness World Record presented a certificate to honor the 5 times Ballon d’Or winner.

Sharing the post on Instagram, he captioned; “Thank you to the Guiness World Records. Always good to be recognized as a world record breaker. Let’s keep trying to set the numbers even higher!💪🏽”

The footballer fans took to the comment session to congratulate him.

This is the latest landmark to push the argument for the Portuguese to be considered an all-time great.

He is already the top scorer in club football’s top tournament, the European Cup/Champions League, a trophy he has won five times.

The former Real Madrid forward is also the top scorer in European Championship history (14) and in Euros and World Cups combined (21).

Kevin Durant Trends Following Facial Reaction To Being Asked About His Nickname

One thing about Kevin Durant, he will serve you whatever energy he thinks you deserve. The NBA player doesn’t hold back with his word, but especially with his facial expressions. Fans got a taste of his reactions at a press conference and the innanet couldn’t get enough!

The NBA team held the media day of his team,  Brooklyn Nets on Monday. Apparently, comedian and televisions show host David Letterman opted to attend the event posing as a reporter. At the beginning, it was unclear whether he intended to play a prank or was simply filming for his own platform. Nonetheless, he introduced himself as “Dave from Basketball Digest.

“KD, why do people call you KD,” Dave asks Kevin. Before he can answer, David follows up asking if he can call KD by that nickname. “Yeah,” Kevin immediately responded. He follows that up with the explanation David wants to know.

“My first name is Kevin, with a K and my last name is Durant, with a D,” Kevin said.

The response had folks on social media going nuts. Not only are the words sharp and sarcastic, but the blank and seemingly annoyed face tells it all.

Then, David asks him what percentage of effort he plans to give on the court. Kevin responds saying “110%.”

Kevin seemingly goes along with this act by David, until the fake reporter brings up the Knicks. David reveals he spoke to the Dolan family, owners of the New York Knicks, and that the NBA is allowing Kevin to play for the Knicks on days off from the Nets.

“All right, Dave, that was the last one,” the NBA champion said. “They let anyone in here.”

Partey Glitters As Arsenal Dismantle Uninspired Tottenham In Derby Game

Arsenal’s revival gathered pace as Tottenham’s recent decline continued in an entertaining north London derby at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners propped up the table after three games while Spurs were top under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo – how things have changed as a rampant Arsenal ripped their shambolic rivals to shreds in a brilliant first half.

Emile Smith Rowe started the celebrations for the Arsenal fans when he arrived unmarked to sweep home Bukayo Saka’s cross after 12 minutes before the scorer turned provider as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the second midway through the half.

Spurs were producing a horror show and nothing summed it up better than Arsenal’s third after 34 minutes.

Harry Kane fell over the ball in a Spurs attack then missed two tackles on Saka as he raced back into his own penalty area to try to rescue the situation. Saka compounded the agony with a calm finish.

Inevitably, Spurs improved after the break, Kane bringing a good save from Aaron Ramsdale and wasting a good chance, before Son Heung-min pulled one back.

Ramsdale spared Arsenal any late anxiety with another superb stop, touching Lucas Moura’s shot on to the bar as Mikel Arteta’s side closed out a richly deserved win.
