Ronaldo scores 700th career goal

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has joined an exclusive club after scoring his 700th career goal.

Ronaldo converted from the penalty spot during Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Ukraine on Monday evening.

He scored five goals in 31 games for Sporting CP, 118 in 292 for Manchester United, 451 in 438 for Real Madrid and 32 in 51 for Juve.

His tally is brought to 700 by his haul of 95 strikes in 163 caps for Portugal.

The 34-year-old becomes the sixth player in history to reach such a milestone after Josef Bican (805), Pele (779), Romario (748), Ferenc Puskas (709) and Gerd Muller (701).

Czech-Austrian striker Bican - active between 1928 and 1955 - is widely considered the highest professional scorer of all time.
