Portugal legend Cristiano Ronaldo was snapped by cameras watching his record breaking international goal on his phone, on repeat.

Ronaldo missed a first half penalty against Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu. But, he created history with an 89th minute equalising goal that saw him score his 110th for Portugal, thus surpassing Ali Daei as the leading international goalscorer.

It was not over as Ronaldo then came up with the winning goal in the 96th minute to clinch a last-gasp victory for Portugal.

It's obvious that this goal was the biggest goal of Ronaldo's already incredible career and he was seen re-living that moment once again.

TNT Sports posted a video of Ronaldo enjoying seeing his goals from a different angle.

Ronaldo is even seeing bringing the phone closer to his ear to hear the commentary and roar of fans after he scored his goal.

Speaking to Sky Sports after creating history, Ronaldo had said, "I'm so happy, not only because I beat the record, but for the special moments that we had. Two goals at the end of the game, it was so tough but I have to appreciate what the team did. We believed until the end, the supporters too. I'm so glad."

Portugal manager Fernando Santos also hailed his star man as he said, "Obviously, we are all pleased with his record. There is no Portuguese person who is not pleased to see him as the top scorer of international goals ever. But that would happen at some point. I don't see that Cristiano wouldn't score a goal in the five, six, 10 or 15 games he is still to play.

"How wouldn't he break the record? He had equalled the record, so it wasn't the case of needing another eight, nine or 10 goals we could doubt if he would get there. But one goal? If it wasn't today, it would be in any other one."
