Following Cristiano Ronaldo's record-breaking goal for Juventus earlier this week, an incredible statistic has emerged, and it is one that could put an end to any doubt that he is Portugal's greatest-ever export.

Ronaldo scored Juve's opening goal in their 2-0 win over Bologna on Monday evening, and in the process became Serie A's leading Portuguese goalscorer of all time, with 43 strikes to his name in the competition.

Ronaldo is the Premier League's leading Portuguese forward after netting 84 goals for the Red Devils, 55 more than his nearest competitor Luis Boa Morte managed in England's top flight.
