Pele congratulates Cristiano Ronaldo for breaking his goals record

02 Sep 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick against the Faroe Islands on Thursday night meant that the Portugal captain surpassed Pele’s international goals record of 77.

With 78 strikes for Portugal, Ronaldo is now inside the top five on the all-time list and it was special to have made it there by surpassing one of the legends of the game.

“Congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo for having made in into the top five of international scorers,” the Brazilian wrote on social media.

“Bravo!”

Ronaldo is now in joint-fourth with Iraq’s Hussein Said Mohammed and trails the 79 goals of Godfrey Chitalu, the 84 of Ferenc Puskas and the 109 of Ali Daei.
