Cristiano Ronaldo reached another landmark in his illustrious career by scoring his 700th club goal to give Manchester United the lead at Everton.
Record-breaker Ronaldo! Portuguese superstar becomes the first player in history to score 700 CLUB GOALS – as forward reaches stunning milestone during Manchester United’s Premier League clash at Everton
The goal took the 37-year-old Portugal forward’s tally to 144 for United in his two spells at the club.
He scored 450 for Real Madrid, 101 for Juventus and five for Sporting Lisbon.
Sunday’s goal at Goodison Park was only the second of the season for Ronaldo, whose 699th goal came in the Europa League against FC Sheriff in September.
Last year, Ronaldo made history by going top of the scoring charts in men’s international football.
A brace for Portugal against the Republic of Ireland moved him onto 111 goals for his national team, overtaking Ali Daei, who scored 109 times for Iran between 1993 and 2006.
At club level, he is also the all-time top scorer in the Champions League with 140 goals – 13 more than long-time rival Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo’s latest strike also extended his advantage over Messi in total club goals scored, with the Argentina forward on 691 for Paris St-Germain and Barcelona.
