Cristiano Ronaldo: A controversial superstar
Cristiano Ronaldo has broken the men's international scoring record with his 110th goal
Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered to be the best soccer player of his generation, if not of all time. He continuously proves this by breaking new records! Most recently, he broke the men's international record for the most goals scored by a single player. The record was previously held by Iranian player Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals during his career from 1993 to 2006. On September 1, Portugal won their World Cup qualifying match against the Republic of Ireland with a score of 2-1. Ronaldo scored both goals at the end of the match, making them the 110th and 111th goals of his career. He has now surpassed Ali Daei's record and will keep driving that number up as he continues his exceptional run.
Whether you think of him as a cocky celeb or a brilliant soccer star, you just can't ignore Cristiano Ronaldo! CR7 is not only successful on the field—he also lives a striking life outside it. A life, however, that is certainly not free of scandal. So, who exactly is Cristiano Ronaldo? In this gallery, we look at the highs and lows of his life and career.
