Cristiano Ronaldo breaks Champions League record against Villarreal

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has surpassed Iker Casillas’ appearance record in the Champions League.

The 36-year-old was selected from the start by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the visit of Villarreal on Wednesday night.

In doing so, Ronaldo made his 178th appearance in the competition, moving ahead of former Real Madrid goalkeeper, Casillas.
