Ronaldo scored the 760th goal of his career, but is it a world record?

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 760th goal of his career in Juventus' 2-0 win over Napoli in the Italian Super Cup on Wednesday, claiming to be the highest scorer ever. However, doubts remain as to who actually holds the record.


With five for Sporting Lisbon, 118 for Manchester United, 450 for Real Madrid, 85 for Juventus, and 102 for Portugal, there has been little debate about Ronaldo's own numbers.


The Portuguese forward, who turns 36 next month, is the undisputed holder of a number of records, easily zero for Real Madrid and his country, and tops Lionel Messi in the Champions League goal-scoring chart.


But the uncertainty stems from the overall situation of its rivals compared to the previous round, with the Brazilian duo claiming to have scored more than a thousand goals like both Pele and Romario.


Last month, Barcelona's Messi surpassed Pele's recognized a total of 643 goals for the same club, but Santos quickly responded that the three-time World Cup winner had scored 1,091 goals for him They were friends.


Pele's own Instagram bio notes that he is "the all-time leading goal scorer (1,283)."


However, if there are only official match-measuring sticks, Brazil seems to still lag behind Joseph Bacon, who football historians calculated that between 1931 and 1955 there were half a dozen clubs, as well as 805 playings in Austria and Czechoslovakia. Goals were scored.


"As he knew, PPA is credited with scoring 805 goals in 530 games, averaging 1.52 goals per career," said in an article related to him last year.


That number includes 27 goals for Rapid Vienna's reserve and amateur side, as well as some that were not scored in official international matches.


Bacon has scored 759 goals in just 495 games due to the lack of strikes, although the international football research website RSSF (Reck. Sports Soccer Statistics Foundation) says the Czechs have been part of the Second Division since the 1952 season. No data are available.


Pele has scored between 757 and 767 goals in competitive matches of his career, including two seasons with 92 Brazil International and the New York Cosmos.


He is the third (767) by the RSSF behind Romario, who helped Brazil in the 1994 World Cup and finished with 772 goals.


Romario celebrated reaching the "personal count" of 1,000 goals in 2007, at the youth level, and with statements of friendship and appreciation.


Other reports and statisticians suggest that Romario's official pursuit of a global career is less than 750 years old, including the magic of PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, ​​Flamingo, Miami FC, and Adelaide United.


As for Messi, who is Ronaldo's junior for two years, he is on 719 goals for Barcelona and Argentina and will undoubtedly push the equation forward before he can.


Of course, even if Ronaldo doesn't break the record all the time, the mark appears within the reach of a player who keeps scoring at a significant rate as he approaches his 36th birthday.
