On the day that Lionel Messi reached Pelé as the footballer with the most goals in the same club (The Argentine reached 643 with Barcelona, a figure that the Brazilian had with Santos), Cristiano Ronaldo did not want to be less. The Portuguese contributed two goals in Juventus’ win against Parma on the 13th date of Serie A, which left the Old lady one point behind the leader Milan.
There were not two more entries: allowed him to accumulate 756 screams throughout his career and they opened the debate for historical revisionism about who are the greatest scorers in all of history. While some counts indicate Pelé (757) is the greatest striker in world football –So that the Portuguese would be one of that brand–, the statistical site Rssf points out that the man with the most goals recorded is the Austrian Josef Bican, who was counted 805 so many between 1931 and 1955. Regardless of this situation, the Portuguese at 35 years old continues to add shouts that will allow him to break all records in the short term.
The Bican figure is supported by the own FIFA, an entity that in September 2020 published a note where it identified 805 goals by Bican in 530 games. Moreover, in that same report they collate the unofficial Pelé data and mark a theory about Pepi Bican: “Not even King Pelé, who claims to have scored 1,283 goals, did better. The mythical Brazilian includes in his total the goals scored in unofficial matches, and if we do the same with Bican, its harvest is estimated at 1,468 so many, although these figures are difficult to verify given their age ”.
THE TWO SO MANY OF CRISTIANO RONALDO
Moments after the Swede Dejan Kulusevski broke the zero, appeared CR7 in all its splendor to rehearse a formidable jump and get suspended in the air before connecting the ball with his head and sentencing the rival goal. At the age of 35 (in February he will be 36), the Lusitanian makes it clear that his athleticism continues intact despite going through the final stretch of his professional career.
The cameras caught Cristiano just at the moment when he took off from the grass to look for the header with which he extended the advantage in favor of Andrea Pirlo’s team, which would later round off a bulky result that allows him to dream in the first positions. That snapshot went viral on social media.
And in case he had not reached with his header in the first half, Ronaldo stretched the difference between the teams with a relentless left foot at the dawn of the complement. With 10 minutes remaining, the top scorer in the Italian league (he has shouted 12 this season) left his place to Federico Chiesa. In the absence of 5 ′ to go, Álvaro Morata put definitive figures: It was 4-0 for the you.
Pirlo’s men remain undefeated in the competition and will now prepare to visit Fiorentina (17th) next Tuesday, since the next matchday will be held during the week. Tomorrow it will be the turn of the presentation of Milan, which has a point of advantage and will visit Sassuolo (6th). On January 6, the Rossonero will receive the Old lady at the San Siro stadium for the 16th date of the Italian championship.
