Moscow, June 20: Cristiano Ronaldo became Europe's highest ever scorer in international football when he struck an early goal in Portugal's Group B match against Morocco here on Wednesday.

Ronaldo's diving fourth-minute header at Luzhniki Stadium was his 85th goal for his country, breaking the record held by Hungary great Ferenc Puskas, Xinhua news agency reported.
   
The 33-year-old Real Madrid star equalled the record with a hat-trick against Spain last Friday.
   
Puskas scored 84 international goals for Hungary between 1945 and 1956.
