Well, it’s possible that footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will never play again in the near future. After practically every encounter, the two superstars have broken and set new marks. Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed a record previously held by him and Lionel Messi on Tuesday night when Manchester United played Atalanta in a UEFA Champions League group stage match.
The Red Devils drew 2-2 with Atalanta thanks to two goals from the Portuguese international. His second goal came in the 90th minute, and it brought many Manchester United fans to tears. Cristiano Ronaldo has clearly been a key player for Manchester United this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s second goal, which occurred in stoppage time, was his sixth stoppage time goal in the UEFA Champions League. After the goal he scored in the 90th minute last night, Cristiano Ronaldo became the player with the most stoppage time UEFA Champions League goals in history. Previously, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi shared the record with seven UEFA Champions League goals scored in stoppage time.
