CR7 all time #6 in EU top scorer

January 6, 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo will have yet another record in his sights after moving up to sixth in the all-time list of top scorers in the big five leagues on Sunday.

Ronaldo’s penalty in Real Madrid’s 2-1 defeat by Valencia at the Mestalla  – which brought an end to their 22-game winning run – was his 28th La Liga goal this season.

And it was also his 287th goal in the Spanish and English leagues combined, which took him level with Gordon Hodgson in sixth position in the table of scorers across Europe’s biggest leagues, which also includes the Bundesliga in Germany, Italy’s Serie A and the French top flight, Ligue 1.

Cruz Azul vs. Real Madrid

December 15, 2014

All the fuss on Monday morning was about the Champions League, which saw Real Madrid paired with Schalke again, but Los Blancos are focusing their attention on a different competition altogether at the moment: the Club World Cup.

And they get their campaign in Morocco underway on Tuesday night.

They’ll meet Mexican side Cruz Azul, who came through a rain-drenched affair against nine-man Western Sydney Wanderers in the quarter-final at the weekend.

Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has won the BBC’s 2014 Overseas Sports Personality award.

The 29-year-old former Manchester United star was named world player of the year 11 months ago.

“Thank you BBC for choosing me and to my old fans in England. Thank you very much,” said Ronaldo, who has scored 281 goals in 267 matches for Real.

He won the award ahead of tennis player Serena Williams, boxer Floyd Mayweather and MotoGP rider Marc Marquez.

Ronaldo, who has scored 27 hat-tricks for Real, netted 17 goals in last season’s Champions League, breaking the previous record of 14 held by Jose Altafini and Lionel Messi.

He is only the second footballer to win the award since this century, after Brazil striker Ronaldo in 2002.
