Cristiano Ronaldo is now the fifth highest goal scorer in the history of football.
The Juventus star has overtaken Gerd Muller on the top goalscorers in football history list, with the Portuguese beating the Germany legend to fifth position after his goal scoring run for Juventus.
On Sunday night, the Portuguese superstar scored twice to secure a 2-1 win against Parma in Serie A. He’s now netted 18 times already this season – not bad for a 34-year-old.
The Portuguese grabbed a cool brace, scoring in each half of the game to open a four-point gap with close league challengers Inter.
Ronaldo also increased his tally to 16 goals in Serie A, becoming the only player in the top five European leagues to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 14 campaigns.
The feat means the former Man United talisman has now reached another significant landmark of his glistering trophy-laden career.
At 34, Ronaldo with a goal per game ratio of 0.72 has now scored staggering 736 goals in 1028 games at the top level.
Hungarian icon Ferenc Puskas has 747 goals behind Selecao legend Pele who has 767. It seems Ronaldo may overtake both legends should his goal-scoring form continue this season.
Romario is the second highest goalscorer in history with 772, while Czech-Austrian legend Josef Bican is the most prolific goal-scorer with 805 goals.

BREAKING: Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis
Maria Sharapova has announced her retirement from tennis at the age of 32.
The Russian star burst on to the scene in 2004 when she stunned the sporting world by winning Wimbledon at 17.
She went on to win a total of five Grand Slam titles but her career never recovered after serving a two-year drugs ban for testing positive for meldonium.
Injuries to her shoulder and arm over the past 18 months led her to decide to hang up her racket after returning to Los Angeles from the Australian Open this year, where she lost to Donna Vekic in the first round.
But it was as much off the court as on it that Sharapova had the biggest impact.
According to Forbes, she was the highest-earning female athlete for 11 years on the bounce thanks to her sponsorship deals with the likes of Nike and Evian.
