Cristiano Ronaldo has scored two goals in the match that Juventus has won against Udinese in Serie A and with this double the Portuguese crack has surpassed the mythical Pelé, becoming the second top scorer in official matches in the history of world football.
Pelé totaled 757 goals in his career. The Brazilian achieved 688 at club level with Santos and Cosmos in New York and another 77 with the ‘canarinha’ team. Meanwhile, the Portuguese has 656 with Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus in addition to 102 defending the shirt of his country.
And Bican is within reach
Cristiano Ronaldo has only Josef Bican ahead of him, a Czech forward who between 1931 and 1955 scored one more goal, 759.
CR7 also made history with this goal by accumulating 20 years in a row scoring goals since in 2002 he did so for the first time with Sporting de Portugal. It has barely taken three days to start your account in this just started 2021.
