Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to score in 5 World Cups

The Portuguese champion is the first and only player in World Cup history to score in five different tournaments. Cristiano Ronaldo, who converted a penalty in the 20th minute of the second half against Ghana, detaches Pelé, the Germans Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose, and Lionel Messi, who all finished with four goals.

Who have scored the most goals in football history? The ranking has been updated as a result of Cristiano Ronaldo's new goal against Ghana last night. However, the Portuguese goal is significant for another reason: with this goal, CR7 becomes the only player to have scored in five different world championships.

A historic achievement that cements the former Real Madrid star's place among the sport's legends.

The list of players with the most goals ever scored

Three of the players we're about to read about are competing in this world championship: the aforementioned Ronaldo, who is currently first in the standings, Lionel Messi, who is third, and Lewandosky, who is ninth. We're talking about three world-class players, including the Argentine, who is frequently regarded as the greatest of all time.

Let's see the ranking:

1 Portugal Cristiano Ronaldo 837
2 Austria / Czechoslovakia / Bohemia and Moravia Josef Bican 820
3 Argentina Lionel Messi 814
4 Brazil Romário 765
5 Brazil Pele 757

To begin with, legend has it that players such as Romario and Pele have scored at least 1000 goals, but as we have seen, the number of their official goals is much lower. As a result, CR7 is currently the striker of strikers, having scored the most goals in history. However, we are talking about a player who is now on the way out, so much so that he does not even have a club team to register with. This will be his final world championship, and we'll see what options he has for national tournaments.
