According to Marca, Cristiano Ronaldo has only just become world football’s all-time top goal-scorer after the Portuguese legend bagged himself two more goals in Juventus’s 2-1 win over Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday night.
But wait a minute, didn’t Ronaldo beat the record last month you might ask? Well, in simple terms, yes, but not all sources agreed with the stats but according to Marca, there is no disputing it now.
Goalkeepers, look away! 😬

The Spanish based news outlet have said their own ‘meticulous records’ prove that there is now no doubt that the former Real Madrid player is the greatest scorer of all time.
It was reported last month that Ronaldo had become the greatest goalscorer in football history after bagging his 760th professional and competitive goal against Napoli in the Supercoppa Italia.
Ronaldo had reportedly beaten the record set by Josef Bican who scored 759 competitive goals during his glittering career between 1932 and 1955 but some sources disputed it including the Czech FA.
Following Ronaldo’s record-breaking goals (again) his former club Real Madrid took to Twitter to congratulate their all-time top goal-scorer.
The tweet read: ‘The top goalscorer in our club’s history and now in world football. Congratulations, @Cristiano!’
The top goalscorer in our club’s history and now in world football. Congratulations, @Cristiano!
