The Portugal captain scored his fourth goal at this year’s FIFA World Cup after just four minutes against Morocco on Wednesday afternoon, taking his tally at football’s biggest showpiece to seven strikes over four tournaments.

Overall, Ronaldo has now scored 85 goals in 152 appearances for his national team, more than any player in European history.

In doing so, he broke the 62-year-old record of Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas, who retired with 84 goals in 89 games.

At international level, only Iran’s Ali Daei, who struck 109 times in 149 games, has scored more on the international stage worldwide.

eish... I think the g.o.a.t debate is closely reaching the end now. Messi is lazy mhaaan, talent alone isn't enough- requires hard work. Ronaldo on the field looks fierce and focussed, the rest of the team gets inspired seeing him really at it and putting in the effort and Messi plays hide and seek wanting the players to search for him and pass.

Puskas was a natural centre forward and Ronaldo is a wing forward-conveted to centre forward recently, now I'm thinking what if he started playing as a centre forward from the beginning of his career. Surely he would have passed century long time ago.

@aluzebucs murdering his son is harsh words brother but the fact remains that the young judges his father now not in the past where you depend on YouTube.The boy wants action now (NOT IN PAST OR FUTURE BUT NOW)I have nothing against KING GOALS RONALDO as the guy is best at what he knows best which is scoring goals.

@aluzebucs i see you depending too much in past and you tube but those silky tricks are not there lately so we cant live in the past.You may ask Ronald son to choose between the two but he will definately not choose his father.

@alizebucs1986:First let me remind you that we gave top goal scorer award and player award and in our league i dont remember top scorer winning player of the season thus allowing good midfield players like Andile jali and defenders to win that award.Let give you another example Costa is one goal away from Ronaldo so if he manages to surpass Ronaldo and score more goals should we say is better than Ronaldo?

@Pks now let me Remind u of Watching Cr7 skills on Youtube because surely u started watching Cr7 Yesterday who is a little bit matured in his game at the moment,he plays more for Results that anything..Cr7 was promoted to the Sporting Lisbon first Team because the coach at the time was impressed by his silky touches on the ball..Alex Ferguson signed him Because he toyed with his defenders in a Friendly match..i am talking about the Cr7 i know..Youtube won't lie to u

There are some idiots who keep on comparing Messi to Ronaldo and let say the two players are incomparable. RONALDO IS A TOP TOP GOAL SCORER AND MESSI IS A MAGICIAN EVEN A YOUNG RONALDO SON CAN ATTEST TO THAT.IF YOU ASK PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR BEST PLAYER,GOALS LOVERS WILL VOTE FOR RONALDO AND FOOTBALL LOVERS (including Ronaldo son)will vote for MESSI THE MAGICIAN.

Who cares abt d game-goal ratio, he has been playing as a winger for most of his career at international level hence he cudn't keep up. Imagine if dey played him as a centre forward all dis tym, he'd have managed d feat a long tym ago
