Ronaldo 2nd Among European All-Time Record Scorers

Cristiano Ronaldo 2nd Among European All-Time Record Scorers

By David Kappel - Mar 28, 2018 08:02 PM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo closed the gap further on Europe’s all-time top scorer during the recent international break, and is now just three goals behind the leader.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Europe's seven leading all-time record scorers.

The 33-year-old netted a brace in injury-time after Mohamed Salah had opened the scoring for Egypt in Portugal’s 2-1 over the African side last week, and those two goals saw the Los Blancos talisman climb into third spot among the top international goalscorers worldwide.

However, he was unable to add to his tally in A Selecao's 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Monday, drawing his first blank after scoring in nine successive games for club and country.

Ronaldo, though, did take his overall tally for Portugal to 81 strikes during the international break, and only legendary Hungarian Ferenc Puskas is ahead of him in the European all-time ranking.

Puskas scored 84 goals in 89 appearances for Hungary between 1945 and 1956, while Ronaldo scored his 81 in 148 games since debuting for Portugal in 2003. He has since netted against 34 different nations, but never against European giants France, Spain, Germany, Italy or England, as pointed out by UEFA.

Ronaldo did find the back of the net in 56 games for the 2016 UEFA European Championship winners, and saw his side win 47 of them, while drawing four and losing just five of the games in which he scored.

Portugal will still face Tunisia, Belgium and Algeria before kicking off their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign against Spain.

Do you think Ronaldo can break Puskas' European record before the World Cup? Have your say in the comments section below.

@Thagalekgwara most people who support Messi doesn't watch or understand soccer, if Messi does something beautiful we will appreciate, learn to give credit where is due

@alizebucs1986 does the ball magically end in the feet of the scorer? The answer is no there has to be magic before that.

Reading is also a skill you can't just comment without reading this about national teams not Barcelona or Messi. If short pin can't score for his national team that is not our problem... another 6-1 loading...

We are happy for Ronaldo, as without goals his presence on the field is insignficant. He's nothing but a goalscorer.
