Cristiano Ronaldo is now officially No 1. The Juventus superstar re-wrote the record books when he became the all-time leading goal scorer in footballing history.
Ronaldo took his tally to 760 with a Juventus goal in the Italian Super Cup final Wednesday night.
The 35-year-old did so by hitting the back of the net against rivals Napoli in the Italian Super Cup final; a strike that smashed the famous record and almost added yet another club trophy to his vast collection as Juventus went on to win 2-0.
That effort moved him above Josef Bican – with the Austrian-Czech striker scoring 759 goals between 1931 and 1955.
The Portugal captain now has 760 goals in his stunning career. The vast majority of those 760 tallies came for Real Madrid, for whom Ronaldo put up 450 goals.
