With his third goal of Sunday’s Juventus vs Sassuolo, Cristiano Ronaldo became the world’s joint highest goal scorer in football history, levelling Czech-born Austrian Striker Josef Bican’s record of 759 official goals in club and country football….
He is set to cross this record with just one more to go, further cementing his name as a living legend in the world of football.
Lionel Messi, his fiercest competitor, is currently on number five with 717 goals in 893 games. In comparison, Ronaldo has reached his record of 759 goals in 1034 games.
According to statistics, it’s estimated Bican scored more than 805 goals in official matches (including his youth career) and more than 1468 goals in total matches including friendlies. However, his official senior career goal count has been estimated at 759 which includes 730 club goals and 29 national team goals.
The 35-year-old once again showed off his ‘superhuman’ leap, out jumping a fully stretched goalkeeper during Sunday’s match.
