Ronaldo's late strike sinks City

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo struck late as Real Madrid sank Manchester City 3-2 in an enthralling Champions League Group D opener at the Bernabeu Stadium.

The former Manchester United star beat the brilliant Joe Hart to cap a rousing late fightback just minutes after Karim Benzema had equalised.

Hart, who kept City in the match with a number of outstanding saves, told ITV: "You can't go 2-1 up with five minutes to go and lose the game. Who else can we blame? We can only blame ourselves. We dug deep, got a lead twice and we lost it, so we can only blame ourselves."
