Here’s The Only Record C.Ronaldo May Not Be Able to Break Before He Retires
Cristiano Ronaldo has engraved his name all over the world of football and now dines at the table of the greatest players of all time
The Portuguese international has made shattering existing records and setting new ones the apex of his career
with the majority of this coming as a result of his prolificacy in front of goal.
Specifically, the 36-year-old is the all-time best scorer in the UEFA Champions League with 134 goals
The only current player with five Champions League titles, Real Madrid’s all-time highest scorer
Despite all of his achievements, one record appears to be unreachable
However, the record may end up being the only one he does not break before calling it a career.
However, Ronaldo is yet to be ‘The International Top Scorer of All Time.’
To summarize, Ronaldo is simply the all-time men’s international top scorer; he does not own the overall record
Which is now held by Christine Sinclair, a female player who has 187 goals to Ronaldo’s 111.
The Portuguese are tied for 8th and 9th place in the overall all-time international scoring chart, as seen above.
Christine Sinclair, one of the two female players ahead of him, is still active, and it is highly likely that the Manchester United player will progress up the ladder in the next weeks and months.
But, in order to equal or surpass Sinclair as the greatest international scorer, Ronaldo will need Sinclair to stop scoring
Leaving him with the task of scoring at least seventy-six (76) international goals.
Given his Portuguese age and the rarity of international football, catching up on that record might be impossible.
Moreover, She’s still active playing football for her Country which still makes the work more difficult.
