With the goal against Club America, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 500th goal in a professional career. In Manchester United, he scored over 100 goals, whereas he hit the net five times while he was a member of Sporting Club de Portugal.
In the Club World Cup semi-final, Real Madrid faced Club America on Thursday morning, when Ronaldo reached a milestone many soccer players dreamt about. He hit the target in the 90th minute of the match, and Real Madrid’s 2-0 victory was something we have expected. The first goal for the club from Madrid scored Karim Benzema, a 28-year-old French striker. After Ronaldo’s goal, the referee had to check video assistance to see if there had been offside, but the goal was accepted.
This is his 377th goal for Real Madrid, and the Portuguese international is Real’s all-time leading scorer with Raul Gonzales behind him with 323 goals. Ronaldo broke another record when he scored 61 goals in 2014/15 season.
Cristiano Ronaldo struck 66 times for his National team, and if we wanted to include these goals as well, then he reached the 500-goal milestone last September. You can love him or hate him, but you have to admit that Ronaldo is one of the greatest soccer players in the world. Once again he has outdone himself, and we congratulate him.
