But what about Ronaldo’s career is so fascinating?

Well, for one thing, he holds two Guinness World Records: most goals scored in the UEFA European Championship (9), and most international goals in a calendar year (61). He’s also tied for the most goals scored in one match at an Olympic Games (5)—a feat he accomplished alongside Lionel Messi. And he’s won UEFA Men’s Player of the Year five times—also tying Messi.

So how did he manage to do it? Let’s take a look at some of his best moments that made him into a superstar!

Cristiano Ronaldo started playing football when he was just eight years old. He made his first appearance on Sporting Lisbon’s team as an eleven-year-old, which earned him a permanent contract at age twelve. In 2003, Manchester United signed him up for £12 million dollars—a record transfer fee that was only recently beaten by Neymar Jr.’s signing at PSG (Paris Saint Germain).

His first major debut for them came against Bolton Wanderers FC where he scored two goals and assisted another in their 6-0 win over Bolton Wanderers FC. In 2006, he was named Young Player of the Year by both PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) and FWA.

 

Fastest soccer player to ever reach 50 goals in Serie A

When discussing records it is always important to remember that they are not only about individual talent but also about having an incredibly strong team around you. After all, if your team isn’t creating chances for you then no matter how good you are it will be impossible for you to score. However, when you have a team like Juventus then things become much easier. That was certainly the case for Ronaldo when in January 2020 he scored against Parma after just 61 games in Serie A – making him the fastest player to ever reach 50 goals in Italy’s top division.

These are just a few of the ways Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest athlete to ever play the game. We’ll look at five more reasons why we think he’s so amazing—all of which make him the best of all time.

  1. He has scored over 800 career goals.
  2. He has scored more goals than any other player in Champions League history (135).
  3. He has been named FIFA World Player of the Year five times (2008, 2013–17).
  4. He has won five Ballon d’Or awards (2008–16).
  5. His career earnings are estimated at $500 million, making him one of the highest-paid celebrities in the world.

Ronaldo’s journey to breaking the World’s record has been marked by several milestones achieved while playing for different teams. Here’s a summary;

By 2007, Cristiano had already had his breakthrough from his youth level career and made a name in for his international career. By 2012, he has assumed captaincy and by 2016 he had become a champion in Europe and an all-time top-scorer in Portugal. By the end of 2018, he claimed a championship beyond Europe through his victory in the World Cup.

By 2020, Cristiano had scored 100 goals internationally and acquired a title in the Nations League before returning to Manchester United. Presently, he is the International all-time top-scorer and we can hope for more with the FIFA World Cup among other championships yet to take place this year.
