Ronaldo Reaches 400 Goals

MOST COMMENTED

Cristiano Ronaldo reached a remarkable landmark of 400 goals for club and country on Monday as he scored two late goals during Real Madrid’s 3-0 win at home to Celta Vigo—although his goals in the 82nd and 90th minutes glossed over what was a largely flat performance from the Spanish giant.

After the game, Ronaldo dedicated the goals to the late Portugal goal-scoring legend Eusebio, who died of heart failure on Sunday. "I dedicate these two goals to you Eusebio but in fact you were the one who scored them," the current Portugal captain said. "You'll always be in my heart. We have lost one of the greatest players of all time."

Ronaldo’s 400 goals are made up by 230 for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United, five for Sporting Lisbon and 47 for his country. The top 10 most scored-against teams by the 29-year-old are all Spanish, while the teams he has scored the fewest goals against (1 each) are Sunderland and Chelsea.
