Cristiano Ronaldo couldn't resist watching back his record-breaking goal against Ireland on Wednesday night while sat on Portugal's team bus.

Ronaldo, who sealed an emotional return to Manchester United earlier this week, became the all-time leading international goalscorer in men's football when he netted a late equaliser for Portugal against Stephen Kenny's men.

The 36-year-old powered home a header in the 89th minute to bring his country level and surpass Iran legend Ali Daei's long-standing record of 109 international goals.

And it soon got even better for him, as deep into stoppage time he turned in another header to move two clear of the record and snatch a last-gasp victory for Portugal.

The late double was Ronaldo at his usual clinical best, giving United fans a promising glimpse of the elite-level superstar they prised away from Juventus this summer.

While he is undoubtedly one of the greatest players of all time, CR7 also has one of the biggest egos in football and thrives upon being the main man wherever he goes.

Footage from TNT Sports appears to show him replaying the record-breaking goal on his phone as the bus prepares to depart the Estadio Algarve.
