Cristiano Ronaldo thanked Juventus fans who applauded his stunning bicycle-kick goal for Real Madrid against the Italian side yesterday morning (Singapore time).
The fans' generosity of spirit was especially admirable given Ronaldo has now scored nine goals in six games against the Bianconeri; but if his 64th-minute overhead kick deserves to be discussed for years to come, the striker himself gave only a brisk explanation of his masterpiece. "To be applauded in a stadium like this, which has been graced by so many great players, was a top moment for me".
Reacting to the fans' gesture, Ronaldo told reporters, "I have to say thank you, Grazie, to all the supporters of Juventus".
"Well, for me it was an unbelievable moment", Ronaldo said. The hosts were threatening to score after conceding early, but a wonder goal from the Portuguese and a red-card to Dybala took things away from their grasp.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn't know what all the fuss over Cristiano Ronaldo's latest soccer feat is about.
Without wishing to be disparaging to the likes of Sinclair and Carroll, who have both had distinguished if not outstanding careers, their goals deserve to be compared with Ronaldo's in isolation only.
What makes Ronaldo the undisputed greatest in the competition's history is the sense of inevitability that smothers every European game of which he is a participant. I think the game was unbelievable. Not Ronaldo, though, and we should have seen it coming for one key reason. "They have won 10 Ballons d'Or in 10 years, they have been the Champions League's top goalscorers for 10 years". Edinson Cavani, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski are also still in touching distance of Ronaldo, having scored 35 goals in 2017/18 so far.
Substitute Mateo Kovacic hit the bar before Ronaldo saw a shot saved and then fired over as Real Madrid all but secured their place in the semi-finals.
His manager may have been impressed by Ronaldo's goal, but we will leave the final say to Zidane, who also scored one of the great Champions League goals - a magnificent volley in the 2002 final for Real against Bayer Leverkusen.
