Great honor for Cristiano Ronaldo
Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the sixth footballer to score 700 goals during his career.
Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo earned the honor by scoring a goal against Ukraine in the Euro 2020 qualifying match.
Although Ronaldo scored his landmark goal from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute and Taras Stepanenko was sent off, Ukraine held on to secure first place in Group B.
Ukraine join already qualified Poland, Russia, Italy and Belgium at next summer’s finals, while second-placed Portugal, who are eight points behind Ukraine, have Serbia just a point behind them with two matches remaining after they beat Lithuania 2-1.
According to the British Broadcasting Agency (BBC), the player representing the Giants football club has scored 700 goals in 973 matches.
Portugal dominated the second half and finally achieved a breakthrough when Stepanenko blocked a shot with his arm, receiving his marching orders before
Ronaldo blasted home the penalty to make it 700 goals for club and country.
The goal was his 95th for Portugal. Ronaldo is now just 14 goals behind the all-time international record of 109 held by former Iran striker Ali Daei.
Ronaldo is agreed to be the sixth player to reach 700 after Austrian Josef Bican, Brazilians Romario and Pele, Hungarian Ferenc Puskas and German Gerd Muller.
Ronaldo’s record is threatened by Argentina’s great footballer Lionel Messi, who has scored 672 goals so far.
