Cristiano Ronaldo’s excellence is finally done justice by unfathomable goal-scoring stat

Words have often fallen short of describing Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliance, but Sky Sports have gone a long way to doing him justice by revealing the full extent of his unfathomable goal-scoring ability.

Fifty goals, in 12 months, six years in a row – it defies belief. This year has arguably been the most successful of the lot for Ronaldo, having won the Champions League with Real Madrid and the European Championship with Portugal. He is the front-runner for the Ballon d’Or, which will be announced in January, as he looks to win his fourth of the coveted individual honour.

Throughout his career, it has been difficult to describe just how good Ronaldo is. We have all been blessed to witness his sheer dominance of the footballing world alongside Lionel Messi. Every now and then, a statistic comes to the fore which puts his genius into perspective.
