Cristiano Ronaldo has once again reached a big milestone as the veteran Portugal captain made the 200th cap of his long and distinguished senior international career.

Heading into the June international break, Ronaldo had accumulated 198 caps since his senior debut in 2003, meaning he had already played more times for his country than any other man.
But after featuring against both Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday and Iceland on Tuesday in Portugal's Euro 2024 qualifiers over the past week, he now has a double-century of caps to go with his scoring record in men's internationals (at 122 goals and counting.)
While few can doubt the grandeur of his achievements in the men's game, the 38-year-old forward is still way, way off matching the outright records in either of those categories. In fact, he'd have to play on for another decade or more and score at least another 70 goals if he wanted to claim them.
That is because while Ronaldo might comfortably preside over both records -- most international appearances and most international goals -- in the men's game, there are more than two-dozen female players who have won more senior international caps than him to date, as well as six footballers in the women's game who have scored more goals for their country.
Here's a look at just how much Ronaldo is left in the shade when it comes to the international caps record.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning late goal as Portugal beat Iceland 1-0 on Tuesday to extend their perfect record in Euro 2024 qualifying Group J on an historic night for the forward who became the first player to make 200 international appearances.
Ronaldo already held the record for most international appearances when he surpassed Kuwait's Bader Al-Mutawa's, who held the record of 196 matches, during Portugal's Euro 2024 qualifier against Liechtenstein in March.
Portugal struggled to break the deadlock against Iceland but stepped up the pressure after Willum Thor Willumsson was sent off for a second yellow card after a rough tackle on substitute Goncalo Inacio in the 81st minute.
Ronaldo had to wait two minutes to celebrate the winner as the referee first ruled out his close-range strike in the 89th minute for offside, but the goal was given after the VAR replay showed he was fractionally onside.
It was Ronaldo's 123rd goal for Portugal, extending his record as the all-time leading international goalscorer.
The result left Portugal top with 12 points, two ahead of second-placed Slovakia, who won 1-0 away to Liechtenstein earlier on Tuesday.
Portugal started more aggressively but Iceland slowly took control and had two great chances to lead in the first half through defender Victor Palsson and full-back Hordur Magnusson.
But Portugal responded after the break and gradually got into the game, with Ronaldo's goal securing the points.
