Cristiano Ronaldo Extends World Record Over Lionel Messi

By David Kappel - Dec 12, 2017 09:00 PM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently extended a world record previously held by longstanding rival Lionel Messi, and can even add to his tally this week.

Messi scored 25 goals in international competition for club and country during his world-record year when he hit 91 goals for FC Barcelona and Argentina in 2012.

Ronaldo, though, has already scored 30 international goals in 2017. He broke Messi's record in October when he scored in the UEFA Champions League against Tottenham Hotspur and added two more goals in Real's 6-0 rout of APOEL, as well as another one strike in his club's final group stage win over Borussia Dortmund.

Overall, the Portuguese scored 11 times for the national team and another 19 in the UEFA Champions League for Real Madrid in 2017.

Ronaldo has two more possible chances to add to his international tally at the FIFA Club World Cup this week. Los Blancos face Al Jazira in the semi-final on Wednesday, and could progress to the final, which takes place on Saturday.

I'm waiting for u to say your PENALDO is one goal away from 91 of the GOATbut I don't see that happening this year,cos this is gone its December already let the old man with a stick chase a young energetic player,our focus now is to create for others start play not to chance individual trophies

Some of these records are made up by the media. These journos are quite creative when it comes to playing with people's minds.
