Cristiano Ronaldo draws level as joint-top scorer in football history

Another day and another feat for Cristiano Ronaldo!

The Juventus star became the joint-top scorer in football history as he equalled Josef Bican’s 759 goals. The 35-year old scored in added time as Juventus beat Sassuolo 3-1.

During the game, the Portuguese star also gave a glimpse of his fitness levels as he leaped higher than the opposition goalkeeper for a header.

He is also the only player in football history to score 60+ goals in four consecutive seasons.

Cristiano Ronaldo (759 Goals )

118 Man Utd

450 Real Madrid

5 Sporting

84 Juventus

102 Portugal

The 35-year old took 1037 matches to match to reach the feat. Bican, by comparison, scored 759 official goals in a mind-blowing 495 games.

Not long back, he edged past Pele’s 757 official goals.

The Portuguese striker will be determined to break Bican’s record when the Turin side plays against Genoa in the Coppa Italia later this week.

In 2021, Ronaldo would also have other records in his sight. He needs seven more international goals to become the all-time highest international goal-scorer.
