Record-breaker Ronaldo! Portuguese superstar becomes the first player in history to score 700 CLUB GOALS – as forward reaches stunning milestone during Manchester United’s Premier League clash at Everton

Cristiano Ronaldo may not be having the season he envisaged but he continues to make history after scoring the 700th club goal of his illustrious career on Sunday evening.

The Portuguese superstar achieved the milestone in action for Manchester United during their Premier League clash at Everton.

In doing so, the 37-year-old becomes the first player ever in footballing history to plunder in that many career goals.

Goodison Park didn’t look like being the venue for his milestone strike after Ronaldo once again started on the bench for Erik ten Hag’s side.

But he replaced the injured Anthony Martial just 29 minutes in before making his mark a minute before the break.

Casemiro, who was at fault for the opening goal for Everton, made amends after robbing Alex Iwobi of the ball and playing a delightful through ball for the Portuguese maestro.

After cantering into the box, he held off pressure from Conor Coady before slotting in a sweet strike into Jordan Pickford’s bottom corner at the near post.

Ronaldo’s goal was also perfect timing for his side who had responded well after falling behind to an Alex Iwobi strike after five minutes, with Antony equalising soon after.

Ronaldo has played for four clubs during his career – Sporting Lisbon, United (twice), Real Madrid and Juventus.

He scored five goals in 31 appearances for Sporting, 450 in 438 matches for Real and 101 in 134 games for Juventus. In his first spell for United he netted 118 times in 298 fixtures for the club and in his current second stint has 26 in 48 matches .

It’s the latest stunning achievement in the forward’s career – either individually or as part of a team.
