Overheads, free-kicks, backheels... Ronaldo's TEN best goals of the GOAT's 700 by obembet(f): 10:05pm On Oct 14, 2019
If Ukraine goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov needs any consolation, it had happened 699 times before.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 700th goal of a phenomenal career as Portugal suffered a setback in Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday.

Ronaldo reached his latest milestone when he converted a second-half penalty in Kiev, awarded after Taras Stepanenko handled the ball inside the box.

A hero at Manchester United, Real Madrid and now Juventus, a fair few of Ronaldo's incredible haul have been stone-cold classics. Here, we look back at 10 of his best goals.

Man Utd vs Portsmouth: Jan 30, 2008
Perhaps the finest free-kick Ronaldo struck in his career.

The Portuguese developed his reputation as a set-piece master at United and he lashed a phenomenal 25-yard effort past David James as part of a double to send Alex Ferguson's side to the top of the Premier League.

His knuckleball technique sent the ball swirling into the top-right corner for one of his defining Old Trafford moments.

Porto vs Man Utd: Apr 15, 2009
He had absolutely no right to score this one.

Back in his homeland for a Champions League quarter-final against Porto, Ronaldo picked up the ball in the middle of the opposition half, got it out of his feet and sent a searing strike flying past Helton to seal a 1-0 win at the Estadio do Dragao and a 3-2 aggregate triumph.

Almeria vs Real Madrid: Apr 15, 2010
Ronaldo has developed into more of a penalty-box poacher in recent seasons, but this effort against Almeria was a reminder of how devastating he could be when starting with the ball outside the area.

Rafael van der Vaart won back possession in the Almeria half and the ball was worked to Ronaldo, who accelerated past two challenges, left a third defender for dead with a stepover, and drilled home with his left foot. The visitors would go on to win 2-1.

Sevilla vs Real Madrid: Dec 17, 2011
Sevilla have grown sick of the sight of Ronaldo – he has scored 25 times against them, after all – but this strike in a 6-2 thrashing is perhaps the best of them all.

Collecting Karim Benzema's pass 30 yards out, Ronaldo took advantage of the time and space given to him by the defence to blast a shot into the top-right corner, the swerve on the ball making it totally unstoppable. It was one of three he scored that day at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Real Madrid vs Valencia: May 4, 2014
It was not enough to keep Madrid's title chase alive but this was another goal that showcased Ronaldo's killer instinct and dexterity.

head, Angel Di Maria volleyed over a cross from the left and Ronaldo swivelled to score a backheel volley and snatch a point.

Real Madrid vs Espanyol: Jan 31, 2016
Although his game had become more refined from those buccaneering early days, Ronaldo showed here he was not quite done when it came to solo runs and spectacular finishes.

With Madrid already 3-0 up in what would prove to be a 6-0 thrashing, James Rodriguez's pass was deflected into Ronaldo's path and he did the rest, showing brilliant footwork to skip beyond three challenges before rifling home from the edge of the area with his left foot.

Hungary vs Portugal: Jun 22, 2016
Portugal thrice fell behind to Hungary in Lyon during Euro 2016, and Ronaldo brought them level on the second occasion with a display of fine skill.

The captain added a deft flick with his trailing leg to Joao Mario's right-wing cross to make it 2-2, and he cancelled out Balazs Dzsudzsak's second with a double of his own. It was enough to send Portugal into the knockout stages and from there they claimed a maiden international title.

Juventus vs Real Madrid: Apr 3, 2018
Arguably the finest goal Ronaldo has produced.

Moving away from goal as Dani Carvajal dug a cross towards the penalty spot from the right, the Portuguese lept into the air and connected with a marvellous overhead kick. His leg was at a right angle to his body as he struck with the sweetest of volleys that flew past an idle Gianluigi Buffon.

Portugal vs Spain: Jun 15, 2018
Having twice given his side the lead, Ronaldo found Portugal 3-2 down to their Iberian neighbours in their thrilling opener at the 2018 World Cup.

The was a sense of inevitability when he stood over an 88th minute free-kick, but the execution was sheer perfection – power and dip combined to leave David de Gea with no chance.

Juventus vs Man Utd: Nov 8, 2018
Another decorated Portuguese was celebrating at full-time when Jose Mourinho watched his Manchester United team complete a 2-1 comeback win.

But Ronaldo struck first with a sumptuous and technically brilliant strike, watching Leonardo Bonucci's raking ball over his shoulder to volley home.

What is CR700's best goal for you?

Ronaldo is a world class superstar. No doubt.

It nevertheless still remains true that the real GOAT is Messi.

Majority of Ronaldo fans don't play football in real life and so they can't understand why Leo is rated GOAT. An average lady is Pro-Ronaldo simply because he is a fine boy and nothing more.There are just certain things about Messi's game play that only real life footballers would understand.

............. I just know this guy is done more than start arguing hid status.
the highest you can reach in life is turning a LEGEND same as such he has paid his dues to earn a legendary status.
it is only obvious no one man can ever be or turn the greatest living being for soon someone would come shatter the record.
CR7 remains a GRRAT LEGEND of his time and era.

You say he is a hero in Juvetus?
He’s not even Portugal’s hero after 94 tap in goals and you say he’s a hero in Juventus, he must be a hero in Sporting CP too.

You guys are always quick in sucking C Ronaldo’s balls, it must taste minty to you guys.
