What’s up with Cristiano Ronaldo’s new free kicks?


16th, August 2007


2403664.jpgIs it just me, or does Cristiano Ronaldo have a new free kick routine?
The twinkle toed winger seems to have taken a leaf out of Jonny Wilkinson’s dead ball warm up with some strange posturing over the ball before he predictably launches a speculative shot into the stands .
It involves a wide stance with arms angled straight out at the sides and a puffed out chest from the Cantona school of thought – although the crown prince still has some way to go before he can be considered The King.
Is it some sort of sporting callanetics or just self indulgent swaggering now he knows that most cameras will be following him this season?

  1. This has always been my stance when I take free kicks – nothing has really changed. I admit I still need to work on my final result though.

    If he could use the fancy new stance and not hit the ball straight into the wall, I’d respect it (grudgingly). But he just hits it as hard as he can into the wall. As far as I’m concerned, he can continue with the new technique.
