Cristiano Ronaldo has smashed one of football’s great, Pele’s tally of 757 career goals after netting a brace in the Old Lady’s Serie A clash against Udinese.
Few days after becoming the first person to reach 250 million followers on Instagram, the five time Ballon D’Or winner was on fire in his first game of the new year, striking twice and assisting one from the 5 goal triller in his side’s victory against Udinese.
CR7 opened the scoring with a powerful strike after a hard fought possession gained by Ramsey, equalling Pele’s goal tally in the process, before scoring his 758th career goal and surpassing the Brazil legend’s record with his second of the game.
CR7 now sits second in the all-time goalscoring charts with only Slavia Prague legend Josef Bican ahead of him. Bican scored a mouthwatering 805 goals in 530 matches between 1931 and 1955.
