They may well be equal first in terms of total goals but, unless Miroslav Klose nabs number 16, Ronaldo will always be top of the list as far as we're concerned much more diversity and a zillion times more entertaining to watch.
A gentlemanly doff of the cap is definitely due to veteran Germany striker Miroslav Klose who came on and scored his 15th World Cup goal to equalise against Ghana tonight, thus equalling Ronaldo's all-time tournament goal record.
That said, he almost binned his somersault celebration but he's 36 so we'll forgive him.
Earlier this evening on 200%, we introduced the first part of the team that will be covering this summer's World Cup finals in Brazil. Now, it's time for the second instalment of this, featuring a further three of those who have kindly made themselves available for the tournament for us.
For Issue Two of the superb Rabona Magazine, illustratorKate Copeland created six masterful portraits of the true playmakers (Neymar, Pogba Götze), engines (Vidal), and potential legends (Ronaldo, Messi) that countries will rely upon throughout an immense month in Brazil.
We all love to argue who is the best player ever to have played the game, with the likes of Diego Maradona, Leo Messi, and Eusebio hot on everyone's lips. But luxury airline Emirates have taken things a step further, asking: Who is ruler of the skies?
Having started an official partnership with the FIFA World Cup back in 2006, Emirates have recently added Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo to their list of global ambassadors, of which Brazilian legend Pelé, one of the All Time Greats, has been since January 2014.
Finally Brazil got the thumping they deserved. Hope Argentina get their share as well. Lets be honest here, most of the teams in this world cup (Brazil included) have played safety first and that has led to some of the most lifeless games I have ever seen on TV. May be its because I [...]
Lets be honest here. Ancelotti tried his best this season (like relying on post to get through to the semi finals in Dortmund clash in the Champions League and then playing Casillas in the Champions League final) but Real Madrid players defied him and won two hard earned trophies. Real Madrid beat 3 [.
The game is over. Real Madrid has won La Decima. Allegedly, Sergio Ramos has not dropped the trophy. Thus, as per the actual game, there's not a lot to write home about. Atletico defended with numbers and score off a setpiece/goalie error. Madrid switched formations (pushing Ronaldo up as a striker and Di Maria wide as a winger) and then made some key positive subs (Isco for Khedira, Marcelo for Coentrao) to turn the momentum, tie the game, and dominate in extra time.

Ronaldo has saved Real Madrid so many times this season that you wonder would happen if they didn't have him!
Well, that's where Gareth Bale comes in, especially with the Welshman's stellar performances in recent weeks. The duo combined for the first time (in the league) in over a month against Valencia last night, and provided solid counterattacking flair alongside Benzema.
Let me tell you something. Bayern Munich should thank their stars that Real Madrid did not humiliate them further in front of their own fans just 2 hours ago. Here is why: Bale could have scored when Neuer mistimed a clearance way outside of his penalty area. It was on Bale's left foot and he [...]
Two headed goals for Sergio Ramos to dump Bayern Munich bodies out of Champions League and another two (one a typical Ronaldo finish and one a cheeky Ronaldinho-under the wall- free kick) to burn Bayern Corpses. What a game it was. The least said about this humiliation, the better. I guess, Real Madrid took [.
It seems there was one player on everyone's mind Thursday: Cristiano Ronaldo.
With days of back-and-forth mixed signals on the reigning Ballon d'Or winner's fitness, the latest came from his teammate, Portugal's backup goalkeeper Beto who said Ronaldo was "100 percent fit" and "sick of reading things about him that are not true.
SAO PAULO TheU.S. Men's National Team faced question after question Thursday, and they were all focused on the same subject: Cristiano Ronaldo.
The U.S. will meet Portugal at Arena Amazonia in Manaus on Sunday, and plenty of the talk leading up to the two nations' second Group G match has been and will continue to beabout the health of Ronaldo and how to defend him.
In a shocking second result for Spain that probably ruined the brackets everyone had been betting on, the defending World Cup champion is out of the tournament after just two group stage matches. Chile and the Netherlands will advance from Group B to the knockout round after the Dutch earlier in the day rallied to overcome a deficit and defeat Australia.
Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, Aguero, Neymar, Messi, Suarez, Ronaldo, Neymar, Neymar. It's all we've heard the last few weeks. Let's face it; we all know what these guys can do. And let's face it; we all expect them to do it. But that's not the real beauty of the World Cup. The beauty is that it unearths huge talent who lift us off our seats, get us talking, and eventually go on to become household names.
Portugal ensured in Salvador on Monday afternoon that their Iberian neighbors were not the only team thrashed in their World Cup opener. The ninety minutes could not end sooner for Ronaldo and company. Mats Hummels' injury was the only drawback on what was otherwise a perfect day out for the Germans.
The 2014 World Cup is underway and the controversy is already heating up. Neymar and Oscar led Brazil to a come-from-behind win to open the tournament, but it was a dubious penalty kick that remained a talking point after the match. Meanwhile, outside of the pitch, protestors continued to oppose the game, clashing with police in San Paulo.
Cristiano Ronaldo's status for Portugal's opener against Germany on Monday is up in the air.
The 29-year-old star forward was only able to participate in 15-20 minutes of training with the rest of his team, participating in the physical exercises before taking a seat while the team did on-the-ball work according to the Associated Press.
Cristiano Ronaldo is back and looking primed to help Portugal take on Group G in Brazil.
The superstar striker returned to the starting lineup on Tuesday after injury as Portugal thrashed Ireland, 5-1, in their final World Cup warm-up. Ronaldo played 65 minutes, his first playing time since May 24, when he helped Real Madrid clinch the Champions League trophy over Atletico.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Costa have both made the trip to Lisbon for the UEFA Champions League final.
Despite injury concerns around the duo earlier in the week, both Ronaldo and Costa traveled with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, respectively, as they prepare for the final at the Estadio Da Luz on Saturday.

Football isn't always played on a length of grass, with eleven players, in a stadium full of packed supporters. Football, in the minds of us all, can be played on any surface, in any arena, and in a host of different ways.
After missing two matches due to a knee injury, Cristiano Ronaldo is facing even more time on the sidelines.
Real Madrid released a medical report on Wednesday stating that medical tests have shown an injury to Ronaldo's left hamstring. Multiple reports in Spain believe that Ronaldo will be out for at least 15 days.
One of the Official Partners of the Fifa World Cup, Emirates have launched an innovative All Time Greats campaign that all lovers of the game have debated about endlessly given two great players, who is better. 30,000 feet above the sky, two fliers animatedly talking about a football legend when Cristiano Ronaldo, Emirates' latest [.
Ich habe nie jemanden gebissen. Ich weiß, dass Beißen weh tut, meine kleinen Kinder haben mich auch schon gebissen – und ich habe sie dafür bestraft. Bei mir zu Hause bedeutet das: Ab in den dunkeln, schwarzen Raum mit dem großen, bösen Wolf!

Portugal are out of the World Cup 2014 and boy am I glad about it. Let me clarify though that before the start of World Cup 2014, outside the big teams, Portugal was the team I thought would have the best outside chance of winning the World Cup or at least making it through [...]
CAMPINAS, Brazil — Cristiano Ronaldo cut short a training session with Portugal, leaving the field with an ice pack over his left knee — indicating that his tendinitis may still be bothering the star forward.
