The Spanish newspaper “MARCA” revealed that the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, who is just one goal away from becoming the historical top scorer in football, equaled a record that remained steadfast in Juventus for 63 years.
The newspaper said that the goal that Ronaldo scored last Sunday against Sassuolo in the Italian League, raised his tally of goals to 15 goals, to be the top scorer, 3 goals away from Inter striker Lukaku.
She added that the Portuguese star scored the 15 goals in 13 games, equivalent to the record recorded in the name of the Welsh player John Charles in the 1957-1958 season, after which no player could score so many goals in 13 games except for Don.
Ronaldo scored the goal of Sassuolo to his 759th goal at club and national level, also equaling the record recorded by Joseph Pecan as the most goal-scoring player in football history.
And the captain of Portugal is just one goal away from fulfilling his long-stated dream, overtaking Pecan to become the world’s top scorer throughout history.
He is also only 7 goals away, to become the record holder and win the world top scorer title at the level of national teams, which is currently occupied by former Iranian star Ali Daei with 109.
