There are many reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time. Ronaldo has been effective for his clubs throughout his entire career, and despite playing football at such an old age, the Portuguese striker can't stop scoring goals. His goal record is insane, and he is amongst the best goal records of all time. His goal record overall is impressive, but even dividing the goal record to when Ronaldo turned 30 is better than some football legends' goal tally. Since Ronaldo turned 30 years old nearly ten years ago, the Portuguese striker has scored 422 goals. Here are some of the football legends he outscored since turning 30.
