Cristiano Ronaldo embarrasses opponent with brilliant nutmeg

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo took the game by the scruff of the neck last night and fired a hat-trick as Portugal beat Northern Ireland 4-2 in Belfast.

The goals rightly took the headlines, but this sensational piece of skill should not be overlooked.

Obviously brimming of confidence, the Real Madrid star cruelly toyed with Southampton midfielder and Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis, before popping the ball through his legs in impudent fashion.

It’s one of the best nutmegs you’re likely to see, a fantastic bit of improvisation from the Portugal captain.

Check it out in the video above – what do you think, best nutmeg of the year so far?
