Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the most prolific goalscorer in football history after scoring 760th goal in Italian Supercup final

1 Mins read

Cristiano Ronaldo has broken the record for the most goals scored for club and country in football history on Wednesday, after scoring his 760th senior goal to help Juventus beat Napoli 2-0 in the Italian Supercup final.

The Juventus attacker has continued to defy his years since arriving from Real Madrid for £100m back in 2018.

And his strike against Napoli in the Italian Super Cup has now moved him top of the all-time goalscoring charts.

The 35-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner recently moved past the legendary Pele (757), while Romario is fourth (743) and Lionel Messi (719) fifth.

Of his 760 official goals, as recorded by Opta, 450 came during his nine-year spell at Real.

He also netted 118 for Manchester United, 102 for Portugal, 85 for Juve and five at Sporting Lisbon.

His most prolific scoring year came in 2013 when he notched a remarkable 69 times.

The five-time Champions League winner’s most prolific scoring season was in 2011-12 – with 69 goals overall.

He scored 488 with his right foot, 139 on his left, 131 with his head and two via other body parts, as reported by Sky Sports.

Ronaldo, 35, is the leading goalscorer for his country with 102 goals.

It doesn’t appear as if he is done yet, however, after admitting recently that he wants to carry on playing.

He said, “If you feel motivated, it doesn’t matter.

“Cristiano now is good. I feel in a great moment, but I don’t know tomorrow what’s going to happen. I live the present, the moment. Moment is good, I feel happy.

“I feel still good, sharp and in a good moment in my life. I hope to play many, many years more, but you never know. This is football, we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow.

“My eyes see the future very, very bright, so I’m happy with that.”
