The Real Madrid forward moved above Japan’s Kunishige Kamamoto (80) in the global rankings in March and is now tied for second with Puskás (84). Iran’s Ali Daei (109) is the only player to have outscored him. The 33-year-old will overhaul Puskás as Europe’s most prolific international forward if he scores again at the World Cup in Russia.
