Cristiano Ronaldo style 40-yard screamer scored in Mexico

Published Add your comment

Take a seat Cristiano Ronaldo, you too Gareth Bale, and watch a fellow free-kick master do the business.

Miguel Layun of America looked the spitting image of Real Madrid star Ronaldo when rifling home his incredible strike for club America in their 3-1 victory over Chiapas in the Liga MX at the weekend.

When the free-kick was given and the 25-year-old looked set to have a go, despite it being all of 40-yards out, many America fans can be excused for shaking their heads.

Delirium was the only thing happening among them shortly afterwards though, as Layun stepped up to fire an unstoppable strike into the top corner and off the under side of the cross bar.

Bale and Ronaldo would have been proud of such an effort - watch it above.
