Ronaldo nets stunning overhead goal
Ronaldo nets stunning overhead goal
The Juventus stadium broke into applause after Real Madrid striker Cristiano. Just when everyone thought the Portuguese had done it all, he produced a strike in Real's 3-0 Champions League quarter-final, first leg win against Juventus that was astonishing even by the standards of his remarkable career. Real were 1-0 ahead and struggling to keep the hosts at bay when Ronaldo, with his back to goal, launched himself into the air to meet Dani Carvajal's chipped cross with a bicycle kick -- known in Spanish-speaking countries as a "Chilean" -- that flew past dumbfounded Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. The timing was perfect while the athleticism, worthy of a youngster more than than a 33-year-old, ridiculed suggestions that the record-amassing Portugal forward is past his prime.
