Again, C. Ronaldo Becomes Football’s Joint Highest-ever Goalscorer


Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has hit yet another milestone in his career, becoming the joint-highest goalscorer in football history following his late strike against Sassuolo on Sunday.

Ronaldo drilled home to give the Italian champions a 3-1 win.

It takes his career tally to a stunning 759 for club and country.

That meant the Portugal captain joins Josef Bican at the top of the game’s all-time scoring records.

There is no doubt now that Ronaldo will overtake Bican as the game’s most prolific marksman.

Although Pele’s Instagram bio proclaims him as ‘Leading Goal Scorer of All Time (1,283)’, there is still debate over whether all of the Brazil legend’s strikes were in official matches.

Bican played for clubs including Rapid Vienna, Slavia Prague and Dynamo Prague in the 1930s, 40s and early 50s, representing Austria and Czechosovakia at international level.
