Czech FA: Ronaldo has not broken Bican's record

The Czech football federation claims Josef Bican scored 821 official goals and not 759, meaning Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has not broken his record.

The Portuguese superstar scored his 760th career goal in the 2-0 win over Napoli in the Supercoppa Italiana on Wednesday.

Opta has registered 759 goals for Bican and Ronaldo thus broke his all-time goalscoring record for club and country.

But the Czech football federation published a statement with an updated number and claims Ronaldo must score 62 more goals to overcome their hero.

“The History and Statistics committee of the Czech FA counted all the goals scored by the legendary Josef Bican and we can declare he scored 821 goals in official matches,” the Czech Football Team wrote on Twitter.

Brazilian legend Pele insisted earlier this month, when Ronaldo scored his 758th goal, that he was not yet beaten and then updated his goal tally to 1,283 goals.
