Cristiano Ronaldo earns the new FIFA goal record scoring 807 goals

Ronaldo has only made 1,109 official senior games for his country, United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and hometown club Sporting CP to score his 807th goal.

He was named No. 2 among the world’s top forwards in ESPN’s FC 100 for 2021 (and indeed, his 808th). Regardless of how you slice it, that is a pretty remarkable feat.

Apart from leading the pack among his colleagues, there have been talks that Ronaldo is already the all-time leading goal scorer in professional men’s football — however this depends on who you believe.

Confusion arises due to the reliability of records dating from decades ago, when goal-scoring legends such as Pele of Brazil and Josef Bican of Czechoslovakia were at their peak, and the looser categorization of “official” matches, which means their respective totals vary wildly depending on the source.
