Cristiano Ronaldo received great praise as the best goalscorer of all time, after reaching 760 goals yesterday, Wednesday, in Juventus' 2-0 victory over Napoli to win the Italian Super Cup title.
Controversy still rages over the title of top scorer;
FIFA does not have an official record, but many media outlets have confirmed that Ronaldo's goal made him beat Joseph Pecan at the top of the list.
Beauty other than words!

Both Pecan and Brazilian Pele scored more than a thousand goals in their careers;
But these statistics include amateur matches and informal and friendly matches, so many of their goals have not been counted.
Juventus are Italian Super Cup champions!
