Cristiano Ronaldo can simply be called as GOAT ( Greatest of All Time) when it comes to Football. His dedication, hard work, and ability to shine has made him vastly successful in the sport.

Ronaldo also comes in the category of those players who are not bothered about their records as his motto is to make his team/club win matches no matter whether the stage is big or small. He makes sure he will give his best on the field. He, recently, created a new record after becoming the first Portuguese player with the highest number of goals in Serie A tournament.

The feat was achieved by him in Juventus’ game against Bologna. Ronaldo scored the penalty in the first half and thereby became the leading goal scorer from Portugal in Serie A.

With the goal, Ronaldo has now surpassed Rui Costa who was previously the record holder. Ronaldo has now 43 goals to his name for Juventus in Serie A.

If you look at Serie A standings at the moment, Juventus is at the top and a lot of credit must go to Ronaldo for his exceptional performance throughout the tournament. 

He is also leading Portuguese player having the most number of goals in Premier League, scoring scored 84 times out of 196 appearances he made during his Premier League career. 

As far as his La Liga numbers are concerned,  he is again the leading goal scorer from Portugal where he has played 292 matches in that league and scored 311 goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo is also the leading goal scorer internationally, followed by Indian skipper Sunil Chhetri and Lionel Messi.
