C. Ronaldo is now the highest goal scorer for Real in the history of La Liga, having surpassed Raul. Raul probably is one of the greatest strikers in the game and Ronaldo went passed him without breaking a sweat! It took Raul 550 games over 16years to accumulate 228 goals. Ronaldo scored more in half the number of games.
Football today isn’t what it was a decade and a half ago. Good defenders are hard to find, tough tackling robust players even more so. Football is no longer a contact sport. Defenders don’t have the license to practise the dark arts of their trade as they did in the past. Every other tackle is deemed a book able offence. This makes it harder to stop TOP players.
