The Portuguese and Juventus frontman has 760 goals to his name for club and country. While many would recommend Cristiano Ronaldo as the top goal scorer, the Czech Football Association has disqualified him from this honor. Bican scored 821 goals during his vocation and was ranked as the best goal scorer in the world by FIFA in 2006.
Whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi can break the 805-goal record remains to be seen. Both forwards have scored a staggering amount of goals, but it’s the former who is considered to be the best in the history of the sport. Cristiano has been credited with a stellar career and his goals have been televised for all to see. However, there is a possibility that Bican may hold the record.
The number of goals Cristiano Ronaldo has scored for clubs has also grown considerably over the past decade. He has broken the record of Pele, and is now just 23 goals short of Bican’s total. In fact, both Ronaldo and Messi have been regarded as the greatest players in history, and there is little doubt that either one can break the record at some point in their careers.
The former has disputed the number of goals he has scored. Although his goal tally is 772, his record is still impressive. FIFA did not recognize 98 of those goals, and congratulated Romario on his achievement, but refused to count the other 68 goals he scored during exhibition matches. Although Ronaldo and Messi are in the running to break the 805-goals record, Bican remains the best-ever player.
If Ronaldo or Messi could ever surpass Josef Bicans 805 goals mark, the history of the game is likely to be very different. Messi has the best goals-per-game ratio, and Ronaldo has the best overall goals-per-game ratio, but neither can surpass Bican’s record of 1.51.
Ronaldo broke the record for the most goals in a career by scoring his 760th goal in a game against Napoli. He also achieved the same feat in the Nations League. Messi, meanwhile, is the greatest player of all time. Messi, however, is the most prolific. The two players have been battling it out in the Premier League this season.
Both Messi and Ronaldo are a great striker, but Messi can go one better. While Messi and Ronaldo are considered the best strikers of all time, both have their strengths and weaknesses. Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player of all time, but Messi is a better overall player. The Argentine has a softer left foot and is less likely to break the record.
Both Messi and Cristiano have the potential to break the 805-goal record of Czech football legend Josef Bican. Bican began his professional career with Admira Wien and reached a total of 758 goals. He achieved this total at the 1956 International football tournament and his record is still up for grabs. Bican’s career spanned 25 years, and he scored 805 goals in 530 games for Slavia Prague. While Bican claimed to have scored more than 1500 goals during his career, FIFA only recognized 805 as a valid total.
Both Messi and Ronaldo are battling for the record, though Messi’s record looks better. Cristiano scored twice in Juventus’ recent game against Udinese. With the record in hand, he could surpass Bican’s record in terms of goals. Besides, the two of them have record keepers on their side. Messi and Ronaldo can surpass Josef Bicans 805 goals record in a single game.
Interestingly, Bican had two wives. His first wife, Kvetoslava Trlova, kept to herself. But she told reporters that her husband kept a secret of “special meatballs” for his dinners. Sadly, Kvetoslava Trlova died of tuberculosis in 1940. Bican married again in 1943, to Jarmila Lokajova, a 19-year-old tennis player and Slavia fan.
Although both Messi and Ronaldo are far behind Bican, they are a significant part of the history of Spanish football. Their career records and their clubs’ records have both been impressive and a combination of the two can surpass Bican’s record at any time. But which of them is better? And which player has more goals? Regardless, the odds are in Messi’s favor.
With their near-end-of-career era, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo can now rival each other for the top scoring record. Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Cagliari on Sunday to pass the record of Pele. Pele scored 757 goals during his career, and Messi has now reached seventy-one. As the top scorer in Serie A, he is still only a few goals behind Pele.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s eight-hundredth goal against Napoli on January 14 surpassed Bican’s record of 759. The Portuguese striker has also played for Manchester United, Juventus, Sporting Lisbon, and Portugal. Ronaldo now stands one goal ahead of Messi and above Pele in the career goals chart. Can Messi or Ronaldo surpass Bican’s 805 goals record?
Both Messi and Ronaldo are considered the best footballers of all time, but can either of them break Bican’s record? According to FIFA, Messi has the most career goals, while Ronaldo has the most goals in a single club. Ronaldo has accumulated eighty-five goals since he first started his professional career with Sporting CP. He has also scored eighty-seven goals for the Portuguese national team and five for Sporting CP.
Both Messi and Ronaldo have a strong chance of beating Bican’s record. Both have played in similar eras and in the same top European leagues. They have been at similar clubs and dominated their respective countries for long stretches. The only difference is the size of their goal scoring ability. Both Messi and Ronaldo have been scoring goals at a phenomenal rate. The two will surely break Bican’s record soon.
The Czech Football Association investigated Cristiano Ronaldo’s claims to be the best goal scorer. The Czech Football Association has ruled that Cristiano Ronaldo was not the best player of all time. Bican scored eight hundred-five goals for his clubs and country. Messi, on the other hand, has eight-seven goals for Manchester City. The Czech Football Association has not ruled on whether Messi will break the record.
It’s hard to determine the real number of goals Bican scored. His record is questionable, as most of his prolific campaigns took place during the Second World War. The Czechoslovak league he played for did not exist during the war. The Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia was annexed by Nazi Germany. As a result, many of his contemporaries stopped playing football.
Football’s all-time top scorer is currently Josef Bican. The Austrian international played for his native country in the 1934 World Cup, but changed allegiance and ended his career with the Czechoslovak side. He scored 14 goals in 19 games for his country, but is currently third with 805 goals. Despite the looming odds, it is difficult to overlook Pele’s impressive goalscoring record.
While there are many controversies about the record, Guinness World Records has confirmed Pele’s record of 1,279 goals in 1,363 matches. However, FIFA has refused to recognize Pele’s two goals in “special appearances” for Santos after his official career ended at the New York Cosmos in 1977. In addition, his 77 goals for the Brazilian national team and 37 goals for the New York Cosmos at the end of his career make his career total 757. If you factor in his goals for Santos, the total would be 1,205. While Pele is only 78 goals away from Bicans’ record, he is well on his way to achieving his own record.
Another legendary football player, Josef Bican, reportedly scored 805 goals during his lengthy career. His prolific career began at age 17 and lasted until he retired at the age of 42. Incredibly athletic, Bican was known to sprint a hundred meters in 10.6 seconds. His legendary goal-scoring prowess was legendary, and his 805 goals made him a hero of the sport.
The record for most goals in a single season is not officially confirmed until he reaches the 800-goal milestone. But he is close enough to break the record if he plays the next game. Cristiano Ronaldo is also one goal away. It’s difficult to believe Pele could reach the record in a single season, but the odds are good. The Brazilian legend is one of the greats of the game.
However, the Czech Republic’s national team’s official record of eight05 goals is still unchallenged. Bican played for the Czech Republic from 1931-1955, and his total is more impressive. Bican played in 26 international games and claims to have scored more than eight hundred goals in his career. Although he didn’t have the same efficiency as Pele, he is the all-time top scorer in international football.
