Love him or loathe him, Cristiano Ronaldo is one hell of a perma-tanned, egotistical world-class footballer.
On Wednesday night at the Bernabeu, the Portuguese mega-uber-superstar fired home a suoerb late free-kick to set his side up for a dramatic comeback win against boyhood club Sporting Lisbon.
Bruno César gave the visitors a shock lead just after the break and the Portuguese side looked set to pull off a very unlikely win.
However. on 89 minutes, Ronaldo stepped up to curl home a cracking free-kick. However, despite the importance of the goal, the great man refused to celebrate against his old club…
Not only did that fine free-kick get Los Merengues back on level terms, but it also ignited a comeback from the reigning champions which saw Alvaro Morata score a winner in injury-time.
I guess that’s why they pay Cristiano the very, very, very big bucks!
