Ronaldo scores epoch making 800th goal
Man United’s Cristiano Ronaldo crossed another career milestone by scoring twice against Arsenal on Thursday to take his tally to 800 for club and country, earning high praise from some of the great goalscorers of the game.
The Premier League’s all-time top scorer Alan Shearer was stunned by Ronaldo’s performance in United’s 3-2 win.
“You just have to sit there and say ‘wow’ and applaud the guy,” Shearer said on Amazon Prime Video.
There is some debate over his status as the most prolific scorer in men’s football, with Brazil’s Pele and Romario both claiming over 1,000 goals, but statisticians say the Portugal forward tops the scoring charts in official competitions.
