Berbatov became Bulgaria’s leading goalscored when he scored twice against Malta midweek.
The Bulgarian scored his 48th international goal, breaking Hristo Bonev’s long-standing record.
Berbatov is now keen on winning the Champions League with Manchester United.
He said: “I’m happy with the record because it was one of my goals.
“I’ve achieved a lot and now (winning) the Champions League remains my only unrealised dream.
“I took part in two finals and failed to win it so now I hope to make it third time lucky.”
