Cristiano Ronaldo: Backheel goal specialist

Published 2 Comments

Football News

Cristiano Ronaldo scored another exquisite backheel goal on Sunday and, such is the Real Madrid superstar's reputation for the spectacular, a goal of such quality hardly arrives as a surprise anymore.

The Portugal international's inventive strike in the 4-1 defeat of Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu was the fifth time over the course of his career that Ronaldo has found the net in such fashion.

Ronaldo first did so for Manchester United against Aston Villa at Old Trafford - a goal that epitomised how untouchable he was in the Premier League - and the Real Madrid star has since done so a further four times for Real Madrid.

The latest of Ronaldo's backheeled beauties was his 10th goal of the season so far, with this haul coming in just five games and including a hat-trick each for club and country. Very impressive indeed.
