Cristiano Ronaldo made football history during Wednesday night’s Italian Super Cup final between Juventus and Napoli.
The legendary Portuguese forward is now the player with the most official goals ever scored following his latest strike at Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium.
Ronaldo surpasses the long-standing record held by the late Josef Bican, who netted 759 official goals during his remarkable career between 1931-1955.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who turns 36 next month, broke the record in the 66th minute with a close-range finish.
His celebration said it all.
