, the Portuguese star was expected to be considered the top-scorer in the history of football surpassing Bican’s 759 goals, but the Czechs believe that Ronaldo is still 62 goals short to claim that honor.
, who talked about the History and Statistics Committee of the Czech FA’s investigations in the matter, said:
“Josef Bican or Cristiano Ronaldo? Simple question but complicated answer. Mainly because from the whole amount of Bican’s goals you have to pick just the official ones, which is complicated.”
“Our History and Statistics Committee of the Czech FA started to deal with this problem.”
“We based our research on statistics from prestigious international statistical websites that state 805 goals with notice that goals scored by Bican in 1952 in the Czech Second Division for Hradec Kralove are missing.”
“We managed to find them – by the way, it’s 53 goals in 26 games – and we also double-checked every detail about Bican’s league, cup and international matches.”
“After that, we came out with the official number of Josef Bican’s scored goals. We can proclaim that Josef Bican scored 821 goals in official matches.”
“It means that Cristiano Ronaldo is not the best goalscorer in history yet, and he has to work more to break this record.”
