Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo sealed his legendary status in the footballing world after the Portuguese international captain scored in the Italian Super Cup win over Napoli on Wednesday night to break the record for the most goals scored for club and country. Cristiano Ronaldo was responsible for the opening goal of the game to take his tally to 760 goals ahead of Czech football legend Josef Bican who set the record many years ago with the tally of 759 goals.
Cristiano Ronaldo became the recipient of the all-time goalscorer for both country and club in the history of football as pointed earlier but the record has been disputed by the Czech football federation. The latest statement show that Cristiano Ronaldo will have to score 62 goals more to beat the record set by Josef Bican. According to Jaroslav Kolar, the head of History and Statistics Committee of the Czech FA, Josef Bican scored 821 goals and not the widely circulated 759 goals. The goal record was disputed via a lengthy statement from the Czech FA earlier on Thursday. The goal scored by Ronaldo against Napoli in the Italian Super Cup took his tally to four for the new year.
