Cristiano Ronaldo becomes top goal-scorer in football history

 


Cristiano Ronaldo has made history after becoming the all-time top goalscorer in football after scoring for Juventus in their clash against Napoli.

The 35-year-old was expected to reach the stunning landmark against Inter on Sunday after edging closer to history by scoring against Sassuolo last week to level to record - but failed to get on the scoresheet in the 2-0 loss.

Instead, the legendary Juve forward waited for the big occasion in the Italian Super Cup and duly delievered against Gennaro Gattuso's men as he found the back of the net in the 64th minute - sending his special career to new incredible heights. A corner was swung over and Napoli fluffed their lines - leaving Ronaldo with the perfect opportunity to thump into the net left-footed.

With the goal in tow, Ronaldo moves past Josef Bican’s previous high-water mark of 759 official career goals to sit atop the all-time list.
