The record-breaker Ronaldo scores late winner for Manchester United in Champions League. The world-famous soccer player, Cristiano Ronaldo did not miss the chance to remove his team, Manchester United’s jersey to show his elatedness after the game. The renowned soccer player flexed his gorgeously flexible physique to soak his fan’s acclaims after winning the historical goal in the fifth-minute stoppage time.
The Portugal superstar once again revealed his unmatchable soccer skills in the Champions League with his record-breaking 178th appearance. His great decision to make the last kick in the match against Villarreal at Old Trafford aided his team, Manchester United to make a dramatic comeback. With a victory of 2-1 score over Villarreal in the historical match.
After Ronaldo won a header from a quite hopeful cross, the soccer star showed energy by then reacting to a loose football. It looked as if he took charge of the ball only in retaliation for its substitute Jesse Lingard’s touch. Then, in no time he simply made a firing shot underneath Geronimo Rulli, the Villarreal goalkeeper. He made the chronicle shot from a narrow-angle.
The Manchester United’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shares that Ronaldo has always been this way. He has always used his great mental strength to stay as long as and as far as he could play the game. He also shares how he used to take note of Ronaldo’s moves all day. He also speaks about how Ronaldo was one of the team’s most focused players out there. So, whenever he would get a chance, he would always be the first one to strike the goal.
Ronaldo’s fifth goal was surely one of the most significant goals in the five games he played. This goal further helped Ronaldo in setting a new record. It became his 136th goal in the Champions League so far. Making the goal was definitely one of Ronaldo’s quiet goals as well. His nature of staying calm no matter when the chance arrives is a true mark of a good soccer game finisher. It almost looked as if Villarreal gave Manchester United the pass to go ahead. Ole Gunnar also spoke proudly about how Ronaldo’s smart move saved the whole team.
Aside from Ronaldo’s dramatic strike at the Champions League that night, it could surely be said that this was yet another below-par performance by the Manchester United’s team. They were unable to take hold of the incisive counterattacks from Villarreal as visible in the first half of the Champions League match. There were several timely and untimely errors that their team made during the game. But it was definitely one night to remember for both the teams, the associated officials as well as their fans.
Villarreal’s team certainly deserved the win accordingly to how well they played the match as compared to the Manchester United. But it is the final result that really matters and makes a difference in the Champions League.
