It’s been 10 years and over now but prolificity has been one of the significant things keeping Ronaldo and Messi ontop of their games.

When we talk of world-best players, no one on this earth will exclude either Cr7 or Messi. Statistically, both players have registered a combined 1550 goals so far in their careers and these goals have come in different ways such as penalties, free-kicks, headers, acrobatic kicks, among others.

Before we go to the main story of the day, let me remind you that both men are in this year’s Ballon D’Or race and any of them can win it.

When a player scores against his team whether accidentally or not, such a player can be said to have registered his own goal.
