Cristiano Ronaldo score twice in Juventus 4-1 win over Udinese on Sunday to start the year in typical ruthless goalscoring style.
The Portuguese forward’s brace took him to 758 career goals edging ahead of Pele’s total by one, according to Juve’s official website. The late Czech striker Josef Bican is reportedly the all-time record holder for official goals scored. According to Fifa international football’s governing body, Bican is credited with scoring 805 goals in 530 games.
Despite the comfortable win over Udinese, Juventus still sits 10 points behind league leader AC Milan, but the Bianconeri can cut that deficit to just four points with victories on Wednesday in Milan, and in its game in hand.
