Cristiano Ronaldo Equals Juventus 61-Year-Old Goalscoring Record


Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored seven goals in his first 10 Serie A starts - the first player to do so in 61 years.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has become the first person to score seven goals in his first 10 Serie A starts since Welsh forward John Charles did it in 1957, 61 years ago!

This achievement seemed unlikely at the beginning of the season, when he failed to score in any of his first three appearances,drawing blanks against Chievo Verona, Lazio and Parma, however he has since refound his form and the back of the net.

His impressive form since, notably a brace against Sassoulo, has written the superstar into the club's history.

John Charles, nicknamed 'il Gigante Buono' by Juventus fans - 'the Gentle Giant' - scored seven in his firs 10 matches for Juventus afterjoining from Leeds back in 1957.

The Welsh striker went on to find the back of the net 28 times that campaign, something which Ronaldo will be hoping to surpass.

The former Real Madrid forward has already performed better than the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez and Filippo Inzaghi who all managed six goals in their first 10 league fixtures for the Turin outfit.
