Cristiano Ronaldo rolled back the years with brilliant solo dribble in Roma v Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo went on a brilliant run against Roma

At 34 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo is still going strong.

The Portuguese superstar made the move to Juventus this summer and, despite his age, he's still among the very best in the world.

But, in order to keep at the top of the game, Ronaldo has had to adapt how he plays.

Ronaldo used to be a winger who used trickery and went on lung-busting runs.

Nowadays, he's more of a goal poacher who puts emphasis on scoring goals rather than setting them up.

But, every now and then he shows glimpses of how he used to play when he was younger.

And he did just that with a brilliant solo run against Roma on Sunday night.

With the game locked at 0-0 after 15 minutes, Ronaldo picked up the ball on the left and just inside the Roma half.

He then embarked on a powerful run directly at Roma's defence.

Making his way into the box, Ronaldo skipped past an opponent before laying the ball on a plate to Paulo Dybala.

Unfortunately Dybala wasn't able to produce a finish Ronaldo's run deserved.

What an assist that would have been if Dybala put it away.

Ronaldo has also hit the headlines from that game for mocking Alessandro Florenzi's height.

And the Italian, who later scored in the game, hit back at Ronaldo and said 'he thinks he has the right to do everything he did'.

“We’d put the ball out of play twice so someone could get treatment and twice he played it," he said, per footballitalia.

"We could’ve gone on the counter with Kolarov in the first half, but we put it out of play, because that’s the kind of people we are.

“He’s the Ballon d’Or and thinks he has the right to do everything he did. I say and do a lot of dumb things on the pitch too, but it stays there.”
