ALI with 550BC

June 2021

In 2003, Iranian striker Ali Daei broke the men’s record for international goals scored. The first player to ever net a century on the international stage, it is a record he still holds to this day with 109. Second on that list? He goes by the name of Cristiano Ronaldo. You might have heard of him. With the record in the Portuguese' sights, and his nation's first game of Euro 2020 coming into view, we wanted to use this moment to pay homage to the original Centurion Ali Daei.
