7 Best Records Held by Cristiano Ronaldo

"Cristiano Ronaldo and breaking records are inextricably linked." They are innumerable for the 39-year-old, and last night, he added more to his extraordinary skill.

Al-Nassr, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, was at the double in a 4-2 triumph against Al-Ittihad. That raised his season goal total to 35, a new Saudi Pro League record. As impressive as this accomplishment is, the 39-year-old's list of honors is even longer.

With records almost everywhere he has played, these are just a few of Ronaldo's most significant achievements during his legendary career.

Fastest Player to 100 Goals for Any Club - 105 games (Real Madrid)

Finding out that Ronaldo possesses other Real Madrid records won't be shocking. This one, however, gives a clear idea of how fast the Portuguese superstar could rule Spain.

The former winger, who had made a name for himself at Manchester United, adapted to La Liga like a duck to water and started hitting goals quickly. In only 105 games, he became the fastest player in Los Blancos history to achieve his first century. Luis Suarez came next, needing 120 games to equal the number.

50 goals in six consecutive seasons

Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé are currently the leaders of the next generation of prolific scorers, with Cristiano Ronaldo and long-time competitor Lionel Messi already in the latter years of their careers. They will, however, have a difficult time shattering a Ronaldo scoring record that has eluded Messi even.

Between 2011/12 and 2015/16, the Portuguese scored at least 50 goals for Real Madrid in all competitions six times: 53, 60, 55, 51, 61, and 51.

Most Goals in All World Cups and Euros

Being chosen for all these significant events is nice, but an outstanding player will impact the proceedings. Given his goal-scoring record in his Euro and World Cup games, CR7 has unquestionably achieved that.

Ronaldo has scored 22 goals in his ten big event appearances (14 in European Championships and 8 in World Cups). Notable among these are his fabled hat-trick against Spain in the 2018 World Cup and his double against Hungary in the postponed Euro 2020, which overtook Michel Platini as the competition's all-time leading scorer.

Real Madrid Top Scorer - 450 Goals

Unveiled as a Real Madrid player, Cristiano Ronaldo gives a thumbs up to his new fans.

Expectations were high when Ronaldo paid a world record for his entry at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009. By the time he departed, he had done much more than enough to get his name in the record books at one of the most well-known clubs.

Declaring himself one of the best of all time, the goal machine departed Madrid almost ten years later, scoring 450 goals in only 438 games. Not content to remain alone, he is far ahead of his next opponent. That's Karim Benzema, who is 96 hits behind his old colleague.

Most International Goals - 128 Goals

Only three guys in history have ever scored over a hundred international goals. One is Lionel Messi, and the other is Iranian Ali Daei. But CR7 is the one seated at the top of the tree.

With 128 goals for his nation, Ronaldo is the best marksman to have ever played the game. He scored throughout his teens, twenties, and thirties. Who is to argue that anything would also prevent him from scoring in his thirties? That may become possible if there is a desire to play in one last World Cup.

Most International Caps - 206 Caps

According to some of his harshest critics, Ronaldo has had many chances to score goals at the international level. But the more you delve into that argument, the more faulty it becomes.

It is ridiculous to criticize the most potent finisher in Europe for 206 caps. This is particularly the case because no other player in football history has ever reached a double century. Two decades of top performance is evidence of Ronaldo's skill and remarkable work ethic.

Most Goals in Football History - 886 Goals

Though Pele might argue that he scored more, Cristiano Ronaldo is the best goal-scorer in history. The forward has found the net 886 times. After a successful showing at the Euros this summer, Ronaldo might target the elusive 900 level early next season.

The iconic figure will have already had the fabled 1000 milestone in mind, considering how driven he is by records—the question of if and when he will hit that number is one for the future. If not, however, he will probably spend the remainder of his days at the top of this heap.
