Ronaldo A Goal Every 8 Days

When Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the Italian Supercup final on Wednesday, he took his total tally to a world record 760 goals.

The 35-year-old Portuguese superstar was on the scoresheet for Juventus as they beat Napoli 2-0.

It was Ronaldo’s fourth title in Italy since joining Juventus.

He scored his first senior goal 6681 days ago, when playing for Sporting Lisbon, and that means he’s technically scored a goal every 8.79 days since.

102 of those goals came for Portugal, just 5 came at Sporting, he scored 118 for Manchester United, 450 for Real Madrid, and last night’s was his 85th for Juventus.

It is of course a record that is highly-disputed as players like Pele and Romario have been said to have scored over 1000 goals each. However many of the games they played in were considered friendlies, amateur, or unofficial.
