750 goals for Ronaldo! Fans can’t sit still
Football fans are always in a fix on whom to support between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The fans of each side just wait for an opportunity to taunt the other. Seems, Ronaldo fans got the best shot.
Ronaldo scored his 750th career goal during Juventus’s 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League game. And the world erupted in cheers!
“750 goals, 750 happy moments, 750 smiles on the faces of our fans. Thanks to all the players and coaches who have helped me reach this incredible number, thanks to all my loyal opponents who have made me work harder and harder every day,” Ronaldo wrote in an Instagram post as he thanked coaches and fans.
“Next stop 800,” he added.
The 35-year-old has so far scored 450 goals for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United, 102 for Portugal, 75 for Juventus and five for Sporting.
As Juventus meet Barcelona in Catalonia next week, the fans would be looking eagerly at the Messi-Ronaldo game.
The Portuguese player, along with Lionel Messi, Mohammad Salah and Robert Lewandowski, is among the candidates shortlisted for this year’s Best FIFA Men’s Player Award.
130 km per hour is the speed of Ronaldo's free kick. Ronaldo's jump generates five times more power than that of a wild Cheetah as it jumps in full flight. This speed allows him to reach a height of 44cm in the air, which is more than what an average NBA player can do.
