Cristiano Ronaldo makes history, equals World Record for 90th-minute Champions League winners


Man United superstar Ronaldo is known for his penchant for breaking records. The 36-year-old football icon is not only the leading goal scorer in international football with 111 goals, he also holds the world record for most goals (135) in the Champions League. On Wednesday, CR7 added another record to his name.

Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo made history as he scored his third match-winning goal after the 90th minute in the Champions League with his stunning strike against Villarreal at the Old Trafford Stadium.

His match-defining goal eventually powered United to a fortunate 2-1 win over their Spanish rivals at home.

The Portuguese maestro's sensational goal was crucial for United as Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side was in deep trouble in the first half after Villarreal forward Paco Alcacer gave his team a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute.

But the Red Devils bounced back, first, with Alex Telles' equaliser in the 60th minute before Ronaldo came to the party in stoppage time as he left the Spanish club absolutely stunned with his last-gasp winner.

Ronaldo's strike not only ended United's losing streak, it also made him the man with most Champions League winners after the 90th minute.
