There is no doubting Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world and he smashed two records the other night. One of which was a personal record of 500 career goals and he smashed the Real Madrid goal scoring record of 323 goals which is the same as Raul achieved.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 323 goals in just 308 appearances for Real Madrid which is simply incredible whereas the great Raul hit his 323 in over 700 performances for the club. There is a bit of drama around this goal scoring record as Real Madrid say he has scored 324 goals breaking the record with a goal scored against Real Sociedad in Septemeber 2010 when Ronaldo’s free kick hit the back of Pepe on its way in. Who cares? He will end up breaking it anyway!
As a Manchester United fan I have a number of great memories of goals he has scored for the club and this is my all-time favourite. It still gives me goose bumps!

Over 300 goals in just over 300 appearances for one of the biggest clubs in world football is insane and his consistency and ability is incredible. Not only that but 500 career goals for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Portgual is an exceptional achievement and here’s to a few more hundred goals in the future!
