RANKED: The 25 Greatest Soccer Players Ever

8. Cristiano Ronaldo


The Portuguese star is one of the most physically gifted players the sport has seen. Bombing up and down the flanks with a tall frame and tremendous pace, Ronaldo has terrorized defenders since his professional start with Sporting Lisbon. Ronaldo was the fastest player to score 200 goals in La Liga, and is the first player in the history of the sport to score more than 50 goals in a season on six consecutive years. Ronaldo has scored 279 goals in 258 appearances with Real Madrid. No, this isn’t a typo. His best moment with Portugal came in 2016 – when his National Team won the Euros.
