Ronaldo Reaches 750, Here Are His Top 10 Goals
We should consider ourselves very lucky to have witnessed two exceptionally talented footballers, of our generation, grace the football field. The debate between who’s the best between Messi and Ronaldo will go on forever. But hands down, these two players are a perfect example of pure talent and hard work. Speaking of hard work, Cristiano Ronaldo managed to achieve yet another milestone in his already decorated career last night.
𝟕𝟓𝟎 goals, 𝟕𝟓𝟎 happy moments, 𝟕𝟓𝟎 smiles in the faces of our supporters. Thank you to all the players and coaches that helped me reach this amazing number, thank you to all my loyal opponents that made me work harder and harder everyday. pic.twitter.com/ZuS4GDOzeh— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) December 2, 2020
“750 goals, 750 happy moments, 750 smiles in the faces of our supporters”, tweets Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal against Dynamo Kiev last night in the Champions League was his 750th career goal. Even at 35 years of age, Cristiano is breaking records after records. He’s already won 30 major trophies in his career, including seven league titles, five UEFA Champions Leagues, one UEFA European Championship, and one UEFA Nations League title.
So in honor of yet another milestone of his career, we’ve picked out ten of his best goals so far. This was a difficult task as there are probably more than 50 extraordinary goals scored by the G.O.A.T himself. From 750 goals ranging from long-yard screamers to acrobatic goals, we’ve tried our best to handpick a few of them. Check it out.
Ronaldo vs Porto, 2009
Ronaldo in his peak at Manchester United was something else. The opponents were already intimated by his presence in the field and this was one of the reasons why.
Ronaldo vs Manchester United, 2013
The elevation that this guy had taken to score this header is just jaw-dropping. He’s literally jumped beyond Evra’s height to score this goal against his former teammates.
Ronaldo vs Galatasaray, 2013
A trademark CR7 goal with a cheeky stepover, making a fool out of the three defenders in the box. And then BAM!
Ronaldo vs Arsenal, 2009
Scoring from outside the box was something Ronaldo did on a regular basis. This was a special free-kick goal from around 40 yards against their bitter rivals in the Champions League.
Ronaldo vs Rayo Vallecano, 2012
Only a player as skilled as Cristiano Ronaldo can score a backheel goal with such precision; without even looking at the post.
Ronaldo vs Juventus, 2018
This overhead kick goal was so good that even the opposition fans were applauding it. Zidane's (his coach) reaction is gold!
Ronaldo vs Valencia, 2014
A classy flick from a class player to bring his team on level terms against Valencia in 2014.
Ronaldo vs Osasuna, 2014
A stunning brace scored from 30-40 yards out, both with his outward and inward foot respectively.
Ronaldo vs Espanyol, 2016
A striker’s instinct. Ronaldo immediately switches gears after realizing the blocked pass is on his way. Runs like a road runner, does his classic flick, beats two defenders, and scores a banger.
It's pure determination and hard work that makes Ronaldo stand out from all other footballers out there. Will there be another player as consistent and disciplined as Cristiano Ronaldo? Let us know.
