Cristiano Ronaldo has once again cemented his legacy as one of the greatest footballers of all-time, if not the greatest we’ve ever seen after reaching yet another milestone on Sunday. Ronaldo equals the all-time scoring record in the history of football in their away win at Sassuolo on Sunday night.
His last-minute goal on Sunday night brought him to level with Josef Bican as the player with the most official goals in football history. The Juventus and Portugal ace has now scored 759 goals in his remarkable career so far, matching the record held by Josef Bican as the highest-ever goal scorer for club and country. After Ronaldo and Bican comes Pele, whose record Cristiano recently overtook at (757 goals), Romario (749 goals), Lionel Messi (719 goals), and Ferenc Puskas (705 goals).
Meanwhile, 84 of Ronaldo’s strikes have come in the colors Juventus and 102 of those for his nation Portugal. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored a remarkable 450 goals during his nine-year stint at Real Madrid, while 118 of them came at Manchester United, and five during his early years at Sporting Lisbon.
Cristiano Ronaldo equals the all-time scoring record thanks to his last-ditch effort in Juventus’ Serie A outing against Sassuolo in their 3-1 victory.
The goal was also his 15th strike of the current Serie A campaign, the most by any Serie A player this season. Cristiano has averaged an impressive 1.12 goal-per-game for Juve this season, finding the back of the net on 19 occasions in just 17 matches across all competitions.
Congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo on his newest landmark achievement!
