Cristiano Ronaldo's ridiculous bicycle kick vs. Juventus



Check for the kick between 00.15 - 00.24

I'm not a football fan, so I don't watch matches and I have no idea about their clubs (except for a few of them) and leagues (FIFA is the only one I know about). Players, is a different story *blush blush*. So I woke up this morning to Pg. 15 of Mumbai Mirror (dated 5th April 2018) - Ronaldo's  7ft 7in high bicycle kick. And then....I had to see the video. Why ? That man is 33 years old, running at God knows what speed, aiming a bicycle kick goal, and it actually went in the net. That last time I lifted my leg that high (as in 5ft is my record), was during a 10 day Self Defence Taekwando Training Camp. And everyone in the group got it right only on the last 2 days. That was one hell of a chance that he took; and it thankfully paid off.

Ronaldo's second goal for the Spanish giants in their 3-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg victory at Juventus was one of the greatest strikes - the 33-year-old Portuguese rising almost unnaturally high before acrobatically firing the ball into the corner of the net with an incredible bicycle kick.
Ronaldo on Ronaldo - 'My best ever goal'


"Obviously people are talking about the second goal, it was amazing, probably the best of my career," Ronaldo said after the game."It was spectacular. I jumped very high and it's a goal that will live long in the memory. I've been looking to do it for a while, but it depends on the circumstances of the game. It just came to me to give it a go, you always have to try it. I tried it today and it came off".
Speaking about receiving a standing ovation, he added: "It was one of the most poignant moments of the night. To receive applause from a stadium like this, which has been graced by great players, is a unique experience. When I was a kid, I liked Juventus and the fact that their fans have clapped me will stay with me."
I can't even walk straight and this guy manages to make a 7ft 7 inch high goal without even looking at the net.
