Seven Records Cristiano Ronaldo Has Broken or Set Since He Joined Man Utd

  Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Manchester United was the most talked about transfer of the summer as he completed his sensational return to the club.

  Cristiano Ronaldo has been in impressive form since his return to Manchester United. He has also been outstanding for his national team. 

   Since the beginning of the season, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has broken several records and in no particular order, below are seven of them:

1. Most international goals

  Cristiano Ronaldo broke the record for most international goals after he completed his move to Manchester United. 

  This feat was achieved against the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup Qualifiers match. The Portuguese superstar scored a late brace to give Portugal all three points after it seemed Portugal would be losing 1-0 down. 

2. Highest revenue from shirt sale

   His no. 7 shirt raked in more than £180 million and the revenue gotten from the sale of his jersey surpassed that gotten from Jack Grealish and Romelu Lukaku. 

3. Most international teams scored against

   Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record in Portugal's match against Qatar. The Portuguese superstar scored a goal against the FIFA World Cup 2022 host and this took the number of national teams he has scored against to 46. 

    The five-time Ballon d'Or winner made his debut against Kazakhstan in August 2003 and since then, he has gone from strength to strength.

4. Most international appearances

  This record was formerly held by Cristiano Ronaldo's former teammate, Sergio Ramos. His appearance against Qatar took his total international appearances to 181 appearances. Sergio Ramos had 180 appearances before his record was taken from him. 

5. All-time Champions League appearance record

   This record was formerly held by Iker Casillas. The former Spanish goalkeeper has 177 Champions League appearances. His record was, however, broken by Cristiano Ronaldo as he made his 178th appearance against Villarreal in the Champions League. He capped this off with a late-winning goal. 

6. Most teams scored against in the Champions League

  Cristiano Ronaldo's goal against Atalanta on Wednesday means that he has now scored against 39 different teams in the Champions League. 

7. The first player to score 10 international hat-tricks

   Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Luxembourg was his 10th international hat-trick and this is a feat no player has ever achieved in the history of football.
