Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates second goal at Cardiff on Saturday

Cristiano Ronaldo passed the remarkable 600 career goal milestone as he fired Real Madrid to the Champions League final in Cardiff on Saturday.

The 32-year-old forward netted his 599th and 600th goal as Los Blancos romped to a 4-1 victory in the Welsh capital. And he shows no signs of letting up.

The Portuguese lifted his fourth Champions League after winning one for Manchester United before a further three for the Spanish giants.
But the journey all began back in his native Portugal where he scored five goals during his formative years at Sporting Lisbon.

His performances in Portugal, and his high-profile move to England, earned him a call-up to the national side. He has since scored 71 goals for his country, including dragging them to the Euro 2016 title in France last summer.

During six hugely successful season at Old Trafford, which yielded nine trophies, Ronaldo bagged 118 goals in just 292 appearances on the wing.

It was the type of form which earned him a then-world record £80million move to the Spanish capital and he has not looked back since.

Saturday night’s final saw him net his 405th and 406th goal for Real and there is nothing to suggest he is done yet.

He lifted his 20th career trophy aloft in Cardiff — his 11th for the Spanish club — and was once again integral to the side’s success.

He is the winner of four Ballon d’Or awards and has won five domestic titles spread across spells in England and Spain.
