Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he had no point to prove after scoring 101 goals during Portugal's Nations League win over Sweden.

The Selecao captain scored in each half of the match at the Friends Arena to achieve the milestone record.

The Juventus striker was ruled out for the 4-1 win over Croatia owing a foot injury, but bounced back against the Scandinavians, making it the first time he played for his country in 2020.

Ronaldo had scored a hat-trick at the same stadium in 2014 during a World Cup playoff involving Portugal and Sweden.

And the former Real Madrid man added a brace to relive the memories of the Friends Arena six years ago.

The 35-year-old told Goal: "I didn't follow the comments. It's an opinion.

"I knew I had left a mark at this stadium and I knew that, if I played, I would leave a mark again. I don't care about provocations.

"What I have done in my career speaks for itself. No, I have to prove nothing to anyone, and when I have to prove it, I show it on the pitch."

"Now the future is only for God. I feel good, I feel good for playing with these young players."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo's 100th international took longer than expected, but finally came in Portugal's 2-0 win over Sweden in the UEFA Nations League.

The 35-year-old scored a brilliant free-kick and added his second with a touch of brilliance to hit the 101 mark for his native country.

The Juventus striker has now scored 48 goals in 47 international games since he clocked 30 and has now extended his lead over rival Lionel Messi.

Legit.ng also reported that Cristiano Ronaldo's brace against Sweden in the UEFA Nations League clash took his tally for Portugal to 101.

The 35-year-old scored his 100th with an exquisite free-kick while his second was even a better finish than the first.

He is now the second player in history to reach a century of goals wearing the colours of his national team after Iran's Ali Daei.
