Portuguese marksman, Cristiano Ronaldo has recorded his first free-kick goal in club football since late 2018.
The Juventus star has been in great form in Serie A, either scoring or assisting in each of his last 16 games and he entered the second-half of their last match having turned provider once again.
However, it is known that Christiano is all about scoring goals and his glorious strike against Torino marks the first time he’s ever scored a goal by way of a free-kick for the Italian giant.
Ronaldo’s only experience scoring from a dead-ball outside the box since signing for the Old Lady came in pre-season, but even that strike against Inter Milan was heavily deflected.
And then there was an unfortunate moment in the Champions League when Ronaldo’s goal-bound free-kick was tapped in on the goal-line by Aaron Ramsey.
Ronaldo’s Amazing Free-kick
Forget all of that, though, because the wait is over with Ronaldo taking the free-kick instead of fellow expert Paulo Dybala during the derby against Torino with devastating results.
He cushioned his classic knuckle-ball technique over the wall and well out of the goalkeeper’s reach. You can check out the worldie down below:
