Cristiano Ronaldo added yet another jewel to his already shining crown with a match-winning hat-trick against Cagliari in the Serie A 2020-21. By striking his first goal of the game, the Juventus ace surpassed Pele’s disputed all-time goal-scoring tally. While both Ronaldo and Pele were tied at 767 goals in professional football before the contest, the Portugal talisman has now increased his tally to 770 goals. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is indeed delighted with his massive achievement. However, it won’t have any effect on his appetite for scoring more goals. Taking to Instagram, CR7 gave a crystal-clear message that he still has the fire to shatter many more records.
