It looks like Cristiano Ronaldo is still setting records on the football pitch even though he is 38 years old. The star player is on track to finish 2023 as the year’s top goal scorer. Erling Haaland of Manchester City was the only player who could have beaten the Portuguese superstar. However, since he won’t be able to play in the English club’s next game, Ronaldo is likely to stay undefeated after scoring 53 goals last year, more than any other player.
Cristiano Ronaldo to leave 2023 as ‘highest goal scorer’
Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe, who have each scored 52 goals, are behind Ronaldo. Haaland, on the other hand, has scored 50 goals so far in 2023. Mbappe, Haaland, and Kane don’t have any more games planned for the year. The star player for Al Nassr, on the other hand, will play against Al Taawoun on December 30.
But since Ronaldo is almost certain to have scored the most goals this year, he is likely to rest for the next game. Ronaldo played 438 games for Real Madrid and scored 450 goals, which is a record that is expected to stay unbroken. He also set up 131 goals.
During his two stints with Man United, the forward scored 145 goals and set up 64 others. During his 21-year career, Ronaldo also won the UEFA Champions League many times and the Ballon d’Or five times, which is the top individual award in football.
