Peculiar Achievement of Cristiano Ronaldo career 500 goal’s in Club world cup Semi-final against club America on Thursday. But now he has Club World Cup goal for Real Madrid. It took a long time coming, however after he had hit the post twice missed the target with a header with an open an open goal with at his mercy.
James Rodriguez passes to fire under the goal keeper from in the 92 minute to secure a 2-0 win after Karim Benzema had scored the opener in first stoppage time.There appeared to be some confusion over whether the goal would stand, with the official checking the Video Assistant Referee system for a potential offside, but replays showed Ronaldo had timed his run perfectly.
Ronaldo had been stuck on 499 after failing to net in club football’s biggest game – El Clasico – and last week’s home Champions League meeting with Borussia Dortmund.It marks another achievement for Ronaldo, who is Madrid and Portugal’s all-time leading goal scorer, while no player has scored more times in the Champions League than the former Manchester United forward.
Ronaldo scored his first club goal in 2002 at the tender age of 17 for Sporting CP on his league debut against Moreira’s, and it was a typically wonderful effort as he waltzed through the defense with a couple of trademark stopovers before dinking his shot over the goalkeeper.
When Ronaldo reached 500 career goals – including his tally for Portugal – in January, he spoke of a desire to score 500 more before retirement.On three occasions at Madrid he has scored 40 or more LaLiga goals in a season, falling just two shy of 50 in 2014-15.
Two more milestones for Cristiano – goal number 500 and also a first for Madrid in the Club World Cup – made it a satisfying week for the Portuguese. Now, he will look to end it with another trophy.
He 31-year-old, who claimed the Ballon d’Or for the fourth time on Monday, had told the media prior to this match that Madrid were not in Japan on holiday. They were here to win another trophy, he claimed, and on a personal level he was also keen to get his name on a score sheet in the competition for the first time as a Real player.
