Female Ronaldo scores stunning free-kick

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo has a free-kick rival - and her name is Tobin Heath.

The American international scored with a stunning effort in the final of the National Women's Soccer League, helping her side to a 2-0 victory over the WNY Flash.

Heath won the Championship Game's MVP award, with her long-range effort the standout moment in a match of high quality.

Ronaldo has made his style of free-kick famous in recent years, starting on tip toes before accelerating towards the ball and hitting it with the laces of his right boot.

The Portuguese superstar has scored plenty of great goals in the past, but he won't have hit many better than this 40th minute effort by the 25-year-old from New Jersey.

Heath is fully 30-yards out when she strikes the ball, and it swerves and dips towards the top corner, giving the goalkeeper absolutely no chance.

Christine Sinclair secured the inaugural title for the Thorns with a late strike, but it was Heath's free-kick which stole the show in New York.

Watch the stunning goal at the top of this story, and let us know some of the other great goals you've seen in the women's game...
