Cristiano Ronaldo names the greatest goal he’s ever scored

He’s hardly spoilt for choice, but Cristiano Ronaldo has managed to pick out his favourite amongst the 658 goals he’s scored for club and country in his professional career.

Portuguese icon Ronaldo has managed 85 goals for his country since his senior international debut in 2003, with the rest bring plundered for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United and Real Madrid across a career which is one of the more remarkable in football history.

"It surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so it was an unbelievable moment."
