Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined the Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr FC in early 2023, scored 54 goals at the international and club levels this year. No other player has scored as many goals in the last calendar year. With this, fans confirmed that Ronaldo may get the top scorer position in the world in 2023. But in the meantime, there are some indications that the Arab Club Champions Cup, where Ronaldo scored six goals in 2023, is not recognized by FIFA and therefore Rono may not get the title of last year’s top scorer. This was a huge disappointment to the star’s fans.
But now FIFA itself has announced Cristiano Ronaldo as the top scorer of 2023 on their official website. This left Cristiano fans breathless. Rono scored 54 goals in 59 games last year. PSG’s French player Kylian Mbappe with 53 goals, Harry Kane with 52 goals and Erling Haaland with 50 goals are followed in this list.
At the same time, Cristiano has also been awarded the IFFHS (International Federation of Football History and Statistics) award for the best goalscorer of 2023. This is the news that excites the fans of Cristiano Ronaldo at the beginning of the new year. This is the fifth time in his career that Cristiano Ronaldo has been selected as the top goalscorer of a calendar year by IFFHS. This is a record. Earlier, Cristiano Ronaldo won this award in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Second in this list is Argentine legend Lionel Messi who has won this award twice. Messi’s achievement was in 2012 and 2016. Lewandowski has also achieved the feat twice. Superstars Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe have won this award once each.
At the same time, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 44 goals for his club Al Nasser FC and 10 goals for the Portugal national team in 2023. The 38-year-old, who was only average in the Al Nasr jersey in the second half of the 2022-23 season, is in brilliant form in the 2023-24 season. This also helped him become the top scorer of the calendar year. Rono scored 24 goals in 25 games for Al Nasr this season alone. The Portuguese is the current top scorer in the Saudi Pro League for the 2023-24 season with 20 goals.
