Cristiano Ronaldo reached a career landmark yesterday after he scored his 700th career goal in Portugal’s 2-1 loss to Ukraine in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Kyiv.
He achieved this landmark from 973 matches. His goal was also his 95th for Portugal, 14 short of Iranian Ali Daei tally of 109 goals.
Ronaldo’s goal means he joins an elite group of players to have hit at least 700 goals in their career.
Gerd Muller (735), Ferenc Puskas (746), Pele (767), Romario (772), Josef Bican (805) are the only players to have scored more than Ronaldo
