The Brazilian superstar — known in his homeland as O Fenomeno — moved to the San Siro for his second world-record fee in two years in 1997.
He broke his duck in impressive style on September 14.
Ronaldo receives the ball on the edge of the Bologna box with two defenders ahead of him.
Upon controlling the pass, he opens up his body as if he will go on the outside, but quickly cuts inside — showing his famed pace.
He’s then away and Inter’s No.10 slams the ball past the goalkeeper — much to the delight of the watching Nerazzurri fans.
And the England man himself had overtaken O Fenomono who cost the Catalans £13.2m 12 months before.

However, injuries began to take their toll and his total of 15 in 1998-99 was to be the last time he hit double figures for Inter.
In his final season at San Siro, he returned from a two-year lay-off to help mount a title challenge with seven goals in the final ten games of the season, only for the club to concede the Scudetto to Juventus with defeat on the final day of the season.
In all competitions, he scored 59 times for the club — with the 1998 Uefa Cup his sole honour.
He did, however, win the Ballon d’Or twice — just months after his arrival and months after his departure to Real Madrid in 2002.
