Cristiano Ronaldo passed Brazil’s Pele to become the second-highest goal scorer ever with his double against Udinese.
The Juventus and Portuguese striker, 35, scored twice, his 757th and 758th goals of his illustrious career in a 4-1 victory to keep his club under threat from the top four in Serie A.
Pele scored 757 goals in his career for Santos, New York Cosmos, and Brazil between 1956 and 1977, but now sits third in the all-time list with Ronaldo now one goal behind Josef Bican’s record of 759.
Ronaldo is now waiting for a chance to equalise and then overshadow Bican as Juventus visits AC Milan on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, Barcelona and Argentina’s captain Lionel Messi are behind Ronaldo in the all-time club and country list with 742 goals.
