Cristiano Ronaldo scores 700th club goal to put Man United ahead

On for an injured Anthony Martial, Ronaldo wastes little time making his mark, connecting with Casemiro on a beautiful run and beating Jordan Pickford for his 700th club goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo finally got his 700th club goal, completing Manchester United’s comeback from an early deficit at Everton on Sunday before halftime.

The Goodison Park crowd had seen Alex Iwobi put the Toffees in front on an exceptional shot from distance, but Erik ten Hag’s United was unbowed by the setback.

Anthony Martial supplied the equalizer for the Red Devils but soon had to leave the pitch with injury.

That brought on Cristiano Ronaldo, who was flummoxed at midweek against Omonia in Cyprus to extend a long wait -- relatively-speaking -- for that elusive 700th club goal.

Ronaldo had only scored once for United this season, getting on the board against Sherriff Tiraspol in Europa League play, and that came back on Sept. 15.

Then came Sunday. Job done, fittingly on an assist from Casemiro. The longtime Real Madrid teammates were together when “CR7" scored many of his 450 goals for Real.
