“I managed to beat this milestone of 100 goals and now for the record (109),” said Ronaldo, who is only outscored by Iran’s Ali Daei with 109 international goals. “It’s step-by-step. I am not obsessed because I believe the records come in a natural way.”

Dejan Lovren scored first for the visitors in the 18th minute, but Antoine Griezmann’s close-range effort and Dominik Livakovic’s own goal gave France the lead before the interval.

Josip Brekalo managed to score an equaliser in the 56th minute, but Dayot Upamecano’s header and Olivier Giroud’s penalty secured the win for the hosts. swept Iceland 5-1 at home to lead Group 2 with two wins, and Denmark drew 0-0 with England as both teams failed to create good chances.
