"First of all, because every time I represent my country is a special moment, for knowing that I'm defending Portugal and showing to the world what Portuguese people are made of. Secondly, because National Teams competitions have always had a very strong impact in me as I was growing up, watching my idols playing for their flags every other Summer in Euros and in World Cups. But finally and above all, because scoring 111 goals for Portugal means 111 moments like the ones we experienced today in Algarve, moments of worldwide union and happiness for millions and millions of Portuguese citizens all around the Globe. For them, every sacrifice is worth it."

"Another reason for me to appreciate this
achievement as much as I do right now, is
because Ali Daei has set the standards in
such a high level, that at some point even |
started thinking that I might never catch him. Congratulations to the “Shariar” for holding the record for so long and thanks for always showing so much respect for me every time I scored and as I became closer and closer to his outstanding number."

"Thank you Portugal. Thanks to all my
teammates and opponents for making this
journey so unforgettable. Let's keep meeting inside the pitch in the years to come! I'm not closing the count just yet..."
