Cristiano Ronaldo Surpasses Brazil Legend Pele To Become Second-Highest Goalscorer Of All Time
New Delhi: Juventus Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed Brazil Legend Pele in all-time goalscoring charts after scoring a brace in Juventus’ 4-1 victory over Udinese at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
His brace enabled him to net his 758th goal in his sterling career and moved him above the Brazilian legend Pele on the All-Time Goalscoring list.
Ronaldo scored his 757th and 758th goal in either half of a 4-1 win as Juventus got back to winning ways in Serie A. Summer signing Federico Chiesa also got his name on the scoresheet, but all the limelight was on Cristiano Ronaldo once again.
Ronaldo opened the scoring with a trademark drive, after latching on to Aaron Ramsey’s pass, in the 31st minute, before threading a perfect through ball into the path of Federico Chiesa to score Juve’s second goal four minutes into the second half.
Ronaldo has now moved ahead of the Brazilian legend in the all-time goal-scoring list, with Czech Republic icon Josef Biscan the only player ahead of him.
Ronaldo is only one goal away from equaling Josef Bican’s goal tally and looks set to make that record his own in the coming weeks.
Ronaldo has now scored 758 goals for club and country with the majority of them coming during a trophy-laden career with Real Madrid. Ronaldo has now scored in his 20th successive calendar year. Even more impressively, he’s also scored at least 20 goals for club and country in the last fifteen seasons.
