Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo continues to shine despite his advanced age. The 33-year-old Portuguese joined the Old Lady from Real Madrid in July for €100 million in a time the pundits thought he is finished. This season so far, he has netted 9 goals in 15 matches in all competitions to help his new team record the best League start in the history of Italian football. Today, we want to look at five unforgettable moments in his amazing football career so far.
5. Copa del Rey Final Goal against Barcelona
In 2010/11 Copa del Rey final, Cristiano Ronaldo netted the winning goal in the 103rd minute to help Real Madrid beat Barcelona 1-0 at the iconic Mestalla Stadium. This was his first trophy since joining the Los Blancos from Manchester United in 2009. Lionel Messi, Xavi, Iniesta were simply unstoppable those days. Therefore, it was a massive achievement for Jose Mourinho and his players. He went on to lift 14 more trophies.
4. Puskas Award Bullet against FC Porto
Cristiano Ronaldo scores all types of goals. He is a complete athlete capable of destroying you from all corners. He can shoot perfectly with both legs and he is also very dangerous in the air. However, in 2009 UEFA Champions League season, he surprised everyone with a 40-yard shot against FC Porto that went perfectly to the top corner. He won Puskas Award for that goal. He will certainly never forget that strike. Manchester United lost 2-0 to Barcelona in the final and he left the club to join Real Madrid that summer.
3. Overhead Goal against Juventus
In 2017/18 season, Cristiano Ronaldo fell in love with Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation. The Portuguese had just netted an incredible bicycle kick also known as an overhead kick for Real Madrid. It was such a beauty that the home fans stood up to clasp for him. It was that moment that allegiance didn’t matter when a genius scores a spectacular goal like that. It is probably the moment he made up his mind about where he wants to go after Madrid. He is now their player.
