Video Shows Every One Of Cristiano Ronaldo's 700 Career Goals

Video Shows Every One Of Cristiano Ronaldo's 700 Career Goals

Cristiano Ronaldo reached the incredible milestone of scoring 700 career goals on Monday night, scoring from the penalty spot in Portugal's Euro 2020 qualifier with Ukraine, but he's scored plenty better goals.

Plenty of professionals don't even get to 700 appearances but Ronaldo has managed to score 700 times, something only five players have managed in the history of football before him.

Someone put together a video of all of his goals, starting with his strike for Sporting Lisbon against Moreirense on October 7th 2002, and ending with the penalty against Ukraine.

Unfortunately for Ronaldo and his fellow countrymen reaching the landmark, done before Lionel Messi could manage the same with the Argentina forward on 699, didn't end with a win.

Two goals in the first half put Ukraine 2-0 up in the Euro 2020 qualifier and despite Ronaldo's goal from the spot, and the red card to Taras Stepanenko's sending off immediately preceding it, the Nations League champions were unable to complete the comeback.

The three points for the hosts means they confirmed their qualification for next summer's tournament whilst holders Portugal are yet to confirm their participation.

Fortunately for Ronaldo and his teammates their last two fixtures are against the two bottom sides in their group, Lithuania and Luxembourg, so they should get all six points and qualify ahead of Serbia.

Despite losing the match, the Juventus forward was in high spirits after reaching the ridiculous goal record, saying, "Not just anyone can reach this figure.

"Thank you to my team-mates, colleagues and coaches who have helped me to become the player I am. I am disappointed that we didn't win, but proud of the team."

The five time Ballon d'Or winner also claimed he didn't 'go looking' for records, adding, "How many records do I have? I don't know.

"I have to enjoy the moment and thank those who helped me reach this impressive mark.

"Records come naturally - I don't go looking for them, records come looking for me! Without having an obsession, they happen naturally."

The penalty also took the 34-year-old one goal closer to another incredible record that he looks ever more likely to break, most international goals.

Ronaldo is now just 14 behind Iran's Ali Daei after his 95th goal for Portugal, though he still needs 105 to equal Josef Biscan's record of 805 professional career goals.
