Cristiano Ronaldo needs yet 9 goals to match Pele's world goalscoring record
Cristiano Ronaldo started the year with 2 goals in Serie A match Juventus – Udinese (4:1). Thus, he raised his fantastic tally to 758 goals at top level.
With this amount, the Portuguese takes 2nd place in all-time goal-scorers list. But there are no doubts he will become the new record holder. And quite soon.
The world record still belongs to Pele (767 top-level goals). As we see, the distance between them is already very short; it’s for CR actually matter of few weeks to catch up “O Rei”.
Here is the detailing of their tallies.
