A few big moments make us cheer in the competitive and beautiful world of football, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 1,200th game was one of those moments. After achieving another milestone at the veteran age of 38, the Portuguese maestro recently played his 1,200th proffesional match, sending a message to his haters and his opponents. “I’m not done.”

Al Nassr 4 – 1 Al-Riyadh

In Saudi Arabia, where football took over after the government gave 17 billion USD to the Saudi teams to spend, in aim to increase the country’s tourism, Ronaldo showed off his scoring skills in a way that’s become his trademark. He scored a goal, thanks to a perfect pass from Sadio Mane. At 38 years old, Ronaldo hasn’t been slowing down; he’s just scoring more, and winning more games and awards. But it wasn’t just him scoring – he assisted his teammate, Otavio, as well. It’s no surprise Al-Nassr won 4-1 against Al-Riyadh and the celebrations were electric.

Looking back at Ronaldo’s Career

To celebrate this milestone, let’s have a look at his career. Starting from his early days at Sporting, moving to Manchester United, Real Madrid, and then Juventus – Ronaldo’s journey is like a football adventure. He hit his 1,000th senior appearance in February 2020 and broke the all-time FIFA goal record in 2022, making him a football legend.

This 1,200th game is another chapter in Ronaldo’s story. Leading Al-Nassr to victory in the Saudi Pro League. And when you hear that the record for the most games played by a footballer is 1,387 (held by Peter Shilton), you know Ronaldo is not far behind another record.

Ronaldo began his senior career with Sporting CP, before signing with Manchester United in 2003, winning the FA Cup in his first season. He would also go on to win three consecutive Premier League titles, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup; at age 23, he won his first Ballon d’Or. Ronaldo was the subject of the then-most expensive association football transfer when he signed for Real Madrid in 2009 in a transfer worth €94 million (£80 million). He became a key contributor and formed an attacking trio with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale which was integral to the team winning four Champions Leagues from 2014 to 2018, including La Décima. During this period, he won back-to-back Ballons d’Or in 2013 and 2014, and again in 2016 and 2017, and was runner-up three times behind Lionel Messi, his perceived career rival. He also became the club’s all-time top goalscorer and the all-time top scorer in the Champions League, and finished as the competition’s top scorer for six consecutive seasons between 2012 and 2018. With Real, Ronaldo won four Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, two UEFA Super Cups and three Club World Cups. In 2018, he signed for Juventus in a transfer worth an initial €100 million (£88 million), the most expensive transfer for an Italian club and for a player over 30 years old. He won two Serie A titles, two Supercoppa Italiana trophies and a Coppa Italia, became the inaugural Serie A Most Valuable Player and became the first footballer to finish as top scorer in the English, Spanish and Italian leagues. He returned to Manchester United in 2021, finishing his only full season as the club’s top scorer, before his contract was mutually terminated in 2022. In 2023, he signed for Al Nassr, since then he has performed time and time again and won Al Nassr’s first ever Arab Champions Club.
