Marcus Rashford claimed the assist for Ronaldo’s second half goal, a right-footed shot from inside the box.

Arsenal had gone 1-0 up before Bruno Fernandes scored just before half-time.

Ronaldo went on to add goal number 801 from the penalty spot later in the game.

 

Ronaldo is the all time leading international goalscorer with 115 goals. He broke the record of 111 back in September against Ireland.

Ronaldo has now scored 12 Manchester United goals since returning to the club at the end of August and is the team’s leading scorer.

130 of Ronaldo’s total have come for United across his two spells.

The rest have been scored for Sporting, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Portugal.
