Cristiano Ronaldo has always been the man for the big games. The Portuguese forward has made it a habit to step up when the whole world is watching and he does it in style.
The Real Madrid number 7 gave us another jaw-dropping moment to celebrate when the Los Blancos locked horns with Juventus in the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday. Yes, we had another CR7 goal to remember!
Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to a Dani Carvajal chip and pulled off a ridiculous bicycle kick to give Madrid a 2-0 lead over the hosts.
The goal was a sheer display of class, technique and his otherworldly athleticism which has already sent the football world into madness! The match ended 3-0 on Madrid’s favour with the Portuguese snatching a brace to his name.
Ronaldo earned a standing ovation even from the Juventus supporters which speak volumes about the quality of the strike.
No, that’s not all. The goal was so good that Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh couldn’t help but come up with a tweet in awe of the 33-year-old.

“If an artist created the perfect footballer, it would be Lionel Messi. If an engineer created the perfect footballer, it would be Cristiano Ronaldo.
We are so lucky to live in this era.”

Big match player – done it for clubs, done it for country – done it at home, done it away. Always stands up and gets counted on big occasions – the greatest footballer of all time @Cristiano Ronaldo.

One from John Dykes!
My first reaction to that @Cristiano goal was one of awe at the athleticism and technique required. His skill set is so totally different from that intuitive dribbling genius of Messi (or Maradona) and that’s why I never bother with the Ronaldo or Messi argument. Just enjoy!

You can watch the stunning goal here:
With the World Cup just around the corner, it’s time for the teams to be scared of this man, very sacred. And with performances like these, what do you think? A 6th Ballon D’or on the cards?
