By Philip O’Connor

STOCKHOLM, Sept 8 (Reuters)Cristiano Ronaldo has set his sights on Ali Daei’s record of 109 international goals following a double in Portugal’s 2-1 Nations League win away to Sweden that saw him reach 101 goals for his country since his debut in 2004.

Having missed Portugal’s Nations League opener against Croatia on Saturday with a toe injury, Ronaldo wasted no time on his return, scoring a first-half free kick and adding a second from open play in the 72nd minute to close in on Iranian Daei’s record.

“I managed to beat this milestone of 100 goals and now (I’ll go) for the record. It’s step-by-step. I am not obsessed because I believe the records come in a natural way,” Ronaldo said.

A little more than a week after allowing indoor dining at restaurants to resume and coming out of a holiday weekend, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s administration is preparing to push the countywide curfew back to 11 p.m. and lift organized sports restrictions at parks.

Citing a steady decrease of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Gimenez also said more businesses could soon reopen, including movie theaters.

“We wanted to get past Labor Day,” Gimenez said during an interview Tuesday morning on WIOD News Radio. “This week we should be opening up more and more of our businesses.”

The mayor and Congressional candidate also suggested bars and nightclubs may not reopen in Florida’s most populous county until there is a vaccine for the novel coronavirus. A mandate on facial coverings in public is also likely to remain in place until then.

Gimenez and other municipal elected officials have echoed medical experts
