In-form Cristiano Ronaldo Closes In On European All-Time Goal Record

By David Kappel - Sep 01, 2017 09:03 AM @kappilinho

Cristiano Ronaldo put in a Man of the Match performance against Faroe Islands, climbing to second spot in Europe's all-time international goalscorers ranking in the process.

Click through the gallery above to see Europe's 10 top international goalscorers of all time.

The Portugal captain scored a hat-trick in his side's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands on Thursday night, which they won 5-1.

 

Following his triple strikes, Ronaldo moved clear of Sandor Kocsis, who is now in third place with 75 goals, and is now only six behind all-time record scorer Ferenc Puskas on 84 strikes, as confirmed by UEFA.

Names such as Miroslav Klose, Gerd Muller and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are also among the top 10 European international all-time scorers.

Ronaldo has been in superb form for Portugal of late, having scored 14 goals in the past six World Cup qualifiers he has played in for the European champions.

If we make the list checking both goals and matches I dont think Puskas,Schlosser,Kocsis and Muller record were never gonna be broken.

@Bob Dawana a friendly response without emotions or obsession or being up against the king's haters.The guy played as a winger bru for a very long time(myb 75 games as a winger) this thing of a false no 9 is new. Do you still remember Van Nistelrooy complaining about the guy for not weeping in some crossing as Berkham was doing
