Sports Desk – Cristiano Ronaldo is about to reach one of the greatest milestones in football history. He is just one goal behind his 700th professional career goals.
Ronaldo, 34, recently scored his 699th career goal against Luxembourg on Friday (Portugal won by 3-0) and he will beat Eusebio da Silva Ferreira (Mozambican striker) at the 5th position for most goals scored by any footballer in football history after he scores a goal.
Most goals scored by any footballer
- Josan Bican – 1468
- Pele – 1281
- Romario – 772
- Puskas – 754
- Cristiano Ronaldo goals – 699
- Lionel Messi – 672
- Gerd Muller – 655
- Eusebio – 621
- Hugo Sanchez – 516
- Di Stefano – 497
His greatest rival – Lionel Messi is 27 goals behind him and we hope that he would also create history by reaching 700 career goals. Along with that, he also scored his 94th international career goal.
According to Marca, Ronaldo has already scored his 700th career goal but UEFA and FIFA still want to see one more goal from him to officially declare his 700th career goal.
It doesn’t matter whether he scored 699 or 700 goals in his career but the fact is that he is one of the greatest football players in history and when he will score his 700th career goal (according to UEFA and FIFA), it would be great to see that.
