On Wednesday, Juventus secured their place for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Dynamo Kyiv. Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the 57th minute which took his all-time tally to 750 goals.
Two of the goals came in Juve’s away win against Spezia in which he substituted Paulo Dybala close to the hour mark and scored almost immediately from a one-one and later with a cheeky panenka.
This remarkable achievement comes on the same day he won his first Ballon d’Or back in 2008. He has won 4 of them after that. For the past 12 years, Ronaldo has amazed us with a number of jaw-dropping goals and skills. He doesn’t seem to age, does he?
What is the reason for Cristiano Ronaldo’s success?
Cristiano Ronaldo is 35 years old but his physical age is that of a 20-year-old youngster. Last season, he scored a header against Sampdoria with a giant leap of 2.56 meters! Ronaldo has owed all his success to his work ethic and mentality.
He is one of the most hardworking players in the history of the game. Messi may be a gem of talent but hard work always trumps talent.
Dedication is a huge part of staying at the top and Ronaldo’s focus is perhaps unparalleled within the game.– Adam Bate, Sky Sports
What’s next for Cristiano Ronaldo after goal number 750?
Portuguese legend does not seem to be slowing down in coming years. Throughout his career, he has brought laurels for club and country. He has cemented his place among the elites of football. He has joked about playing until his son becomes a professional.
Manchester United are looking to sign him this summer. With an illustrative career spent at Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus that has entertained this generation, let us hope that he continues to go on, after his 750th goal.
