Cristiano Ronaldo has reached an incredible milestone after scoring for Al-Nassr in a 2-0 win over Al-Khaleej.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Al-Nassr achieved a new milestone of 400 goals after turning 30 with his strike against Al-Khaleej on Saturday, November 5.

Ronaldo scored his team’s first goal 26 minutes after kickoff, and Aymeric Laporte added a second after halftime as Al-Nassr triumphed 2-0.

The 38-year-old star scored his 400th goal since turning 30 as he hammered a magnificent long-range volley into the bottom corner.

The majority of those goals have undoubtedly come from his Real Madrid stint, for whom he has scored more than 140 times since turning 30 in February 2015. Another 101 joined Juventus.

Ronaldo scored 27 additional goals during his second season with Manchester United and 35 so far with Al-Nassr. Another remarkable feat is that the prolific attacker has scored 75 goals for Portugal’s national team since his 30th birthday.

Later, he turned to X to celebrate his team’s victory, posting four images of himself performing the famed ‘Siuuu’ celebration as well as one with the team in a huddle. The caption that accompanied the post read:

“Solid win [flexed biceps emoji] We keep the pressure on! @AlNassrFC_EN [yellow heart emoji][blue heart emoji]”

Ronaldo will return to action on Tuesday when Al-Nassr travels to Al-Duhail in Qatar for matchday four of the AFC Champions League 2023-24 season.

Cristiano Ronaldo Is Inarguably The Most Consistent Striker Ever

Cristiano Ronaldo, even at the age of 38, shows no signs of slowing down. He has 863 career goals for club and country, with over half of them coming after the age of 30. It’s a tremendous achievement given that players tend to fade at that age.

Over the last eight years, the Portuguese has also had a few dry spells, but never long enough to suggest that he is no longer capable of functioning at a top level. Even at his advanced age (soon to be 39), the former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker continues to score.

He has 35 goals in 41 appearances since joining Al-Nassr last year, including 21 in 22 matches this season. This demonstrates his consistent scoring ability, which few in history can match.
