Ronaldo tops scoring chart in football history

Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in Serie A with 15 goals in 14 games. And the 35-year-old thinks he will play for “many, many more years”.

Ronaldo also says it would be a “dream” to win the 2022 World Cup with Portugal. Since arriving from Real Madrid for about £ 100m in 2018, the Juventus forward has managed to defy his years. His strike against Napoli in the Italian Super Cup on Wednesday has now pushed him to the top of the all-time scoring charts. For the most goals scored in football history for club and country, Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed Josef Bican-with his tally now at 760.

Recently, the 35-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner pushed past Brazil’s legend Pele(757). Romario is fourth(743) and Barcelona rival Lionel Messi makes up the top five (719). A whopping 450 of his 760 official goals, as reported by Opta, came during his nine-year spell at Real. While he netted 118 for Manchester United, 102 for Portugal, 85 for the new Juve club, and five for Sporting Lisbon.

His most prolific scoring year was 2013, when he reached the back of the net 69 times. But he also had 34 in 2007, 35 in 2008, 30 in 2009, 48 in 2010, 60 in 2011, 63 in 2012, 61 in 2014, 57 in 2015, 55 in 2016 and 53 in 2017. The most prolific scoring season of the five-time Champions League leader, however, was in 2011-12-with 69 goals overall.

More than any other club, Ronaldo scored 27 against Seville. While 25 have came against Atletico Madrid and he managed 23 against Getafe. He scored 488 on his right foot, 139 on his left, 131 on his head and two on other parts of his body.

Ronaldo has 410 goals at home, with 304 going away and 46 at neutral venues. He scored 46 hat-tricks, 136 doubles and he scored four times in a match on eight occasions, scoring five times twice in a game.
