Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo augmented his status as a worldwide soccer icon on Monday by scoring the 700th goal of his professional career, this one against Ukraine.

So far, Ronaldo has played for Sporting, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, but this goal came on his outing with the Portuguese national team.

The much-anticipated tally came on a penalty kick in the 72nd minute during the match in Kiev in the qualification phase for the Euro Cup 2020.

Ronaldo is just the sixth pro soccer player in history to hit the milestone achievement and this was his 95th goal scored with the Portuguese national team.
