Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes The Joint-Highest Goalscorer In Football History

Cristiano Ronaldo reached another historic milestone in his incredible career last night when he became the joint highest-goalscorer in football history.


His late strike against Sassuolo last night made him tally Bican’s record of the most official goals scored in football history.

Ronaldo sprinted in behind late on and supplied an emphatic finish for his 15th Serie A goal of the season so far, but more importantly the strike means he is just one away from becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in history.

He has hit 759 in 1037 games for club and country.

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

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner surpassed Brazilian legend Pele’s tally of 757 last week when he bagged a brace in a 4-1 win over Udinese.

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, Pele probably going to dig up some goals he scored in the park back in the 1950s and count them on his record.

The Santos icon caused a stir after claims he had changed his Instagram bio in response to Ronaldo moving ahead of him but later issued a statement saying it was not the case.

Ronaldo took to Instagram following on from his record-equalling goal, saying he was “happy to have made my contribution”.

Here is how the rankings look after Ronaldo’s goal:

10. Arthur Friedenreich – 554 goals

9. Ferenc Deak – 558 goals

8. Eusebio – 615 goals

7. Ferenc Puskas – 706 goals

6. Gerd Muller – 720 goals

5. Romario – 734 goals

4. Lionel Messi – 746 goals

3. Pele – 757 goals

1= Josef Bican – 759 goals.

1= Cristiano Ronaldo – 759 goals
