Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 700th career goal during Portugal's 2-1 defeat to Ukraine.

He reached the sensational milestone with a clinical penalty but he and his team-mates were unable to find an equaliser against the 10 men of Ukraine.

"The records come naturally, I don't look for them, the records look for me," he told reporters after scoring another milestone goal.

"It's not for anyone to reach this number and I thank everyone, team-mates, colleagues, coaches and everyone who helped Cristiano become the player that he is.

 "It's a nice moment in my career but there was a bitter taste because we didn't win."
