Does Ronaldo's Champions League Goal Record Make Him the World's Best Player?

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistMay 23, 2014

Cristiano Ronaldo has already set the Champions League record for most goals in one tournament with 16 this season.

The Real Madrid megastar will look to extend his own record against Atletico Madrid when they face off in Lisbon, with hopes of delivering another Champions League title for his club in the process.

Ronaldo is inching ever closer to the all-time goals record in Champions League competition as well. Our own Reese Waters spoke with former U.S. international Jimmy Conrad to find out how far CR7 is from the record and whether it's too early to crown him the best player in the world at the moment.
