Christiano Ronaldo scores his 750th career goal
Christiano Ronaldo scored the 750th goal of his outstanding career in Juventus’ comfortable 3-0 win against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old was on target in the second half to double his side’s lead but it’s probably fair to say he scored from more impressive efforts in the past.
The forward tapped in from no more than a yard out to reach the milestone and the forward is already looking ahead to the next target.
“750 goals, 750 happy moments, 750 smiles on the faces of our fans,” Ronaldo wrote on social media. Thanks to all the players and coaches who have helped me reach this incredible number, thanks to all my loyal opponents who have made me work harder and harder every day. Next stop 800.”
Ronaldo is now just 17 goals behind Pele and 22 behind Romario in the all time charts, according to a list compiled by the Soccer Statistics Foundation.
