Ronaldo became the all-time top goalscorer in FIFA World Cup™ history when he took his overall tournament tally to 15 in Germany four years ago, surpassing the previous best mark of 14 held by Germany's Gerd Muller.

The former Brazil star featured in three editions of the FIFA World Cup - 1998, 2002 and 2006 - and he was also in the Brazil squad at USA 94, although he was not selected to play. He opened his FIFA World Cup account in a 3-0 win over Morocco in 1998, and his last in the competition came in a victory over Ghana by the same scoreline at Germany 2006.

In total, Ronaldo - a FIFA World Cup winner in 2002 - netted 62 goals in 97 full international appearances for his country. He is currently playing for Corinthians back in Brazil after a European career which took him to PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and AC Milan.
