Cristiano Ronaldo Jumps Up In Top 10 Most Trophies List
Cristiano Ronaldo has jumped up one spot to ninth in the list of most trophies won by a footballer, after Juventus' win in the Supercoppa on Wednesday.
It was a historic night for Ronaldo as he brought up his 760th career goal, for club or country, as he put Juve ahead against Napoli.
As well as putting the Old Lady on their way to the Supercoppa, and Andrea Pirlo's first piece of silverware, it also broke the record for the most goals scored by one player in the history of football.
Alvaro Morata added a second for Juve in the 95th minute, after Lorenzo Insigne had missed the chance to equalise from the penalty spot in the 80th minute, to wrap up the win.
The trophy was the 33rd in Ronaldo's career for Sporting, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juve and Portugal, putting him joint ninth, as per SPORT, on the list of most career trophies for a player.

Ronaldo's rival Lionel Messi had the chance to jump up to tied second in the list, level with former teammates Andres Iniesta and Maxwell, last weekend but things went seriously wrong.
The six time Ballon d'Or winner set up Antoine Griezmann for Barca's opener in the Supercopa final against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday but, having led twice, the Catalan giants lost in extra time.
As well as the loss, Messi was also shown his first ever red card for his club side, after striking Athletic forward Asier Villalibre.
