I’d always liked this club, but even more so after that moment.”Madrid went on to win the Champions League for a third consecutive season before Ronaldo ended up joining Juve the following season. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 700th career goal on Monday night, as Portugal lost to Ukraine.The 34-year-old has been a star for club and country for many years and this landmark is just another to add to his long list of accolades.The goal was his 95th for Portugal to add to his 605 club goals for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.His 700th goal came in the Euro 2020 qualifier defeat, which his nation lost 2-1.Ronaldo has had many special moments over the years but here are five the forward is perhaps best remembered for.Goal vs Porto in the Champions LeagueWho can forget this outrageous strike from 40 yards that seemingly came out of nowhere?It helped Manchester United reach the semi-final of the Champions League in what was his final season at Old Trafford. 🗣️ “It was amazing – probably the best of my career.” 😎😮 A year ago today – one of the great #UCL goals – Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational overhead kick in Turin! 🔥🔥🔥#OnThisDay @Cristiano pic.twitter.com/5nbrzSqXDw— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) April 3, 2019Goal against Manchester UnitedThe forward made a habit of scoring spectacular goals against former clubs and ones he later joined.Last season, Ronaldo scored this incredible over the shoulder volley against Manchester United in Turin.Despite this spectacular strike, they went on to lose the game 2-1.Free-kick against PortsmouthRonaldo may have struggled to score free-kicks of late, he is statistically one of the worst in Serie A history, but this stunning effort will always be remembered.The strike against Portsmouth in 2008 arrowed into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper David James no chance. Bonus: And one he should have scored… 701?This would have been a superb individual goal from the Portugal star had it not been for Nani trying to poach it as the ball was crossing the line.Ronaldo beat two defenders and then chipped Iker Casillas from close range but the then Manchester United winger headed the ball as it was going in.Nani was in an offside position and the goal was chalked off, cueing a furious reaction from Ronaldo who threw his captain’s armband to the ground.It did not matter too much, though, as Portugal went on to win that 2010 match.center_img “If I could marry a football match…. it would be this one” 👰🤵Adrian Durham got very emotional during last nights #PORESP match! 😂#TSWorldCup | @talkSPORTDrive pic.twitter.com/pbC2gssmN7— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) June 16, 2018 Cristiano Ronaldo’s freekick vs Portsmouth will never get old.
