Class is never lost, even if you have turned 37 and are no longer a holder. A footballer of Cristiano Ronaldo’s caliber will probably never lose his magic touch, even when he is 70 years old. CR7, during the warm-up before the Europa League match against Sheriff Tiraspol, once again showed his infinite technique. The Portuguese scored a flying goal with absolute naturalness that immediately went viral.
Last Thursday, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal of the season when he scored the 2-0 penalty. This was also the first in the Europa League in his career. But the most memorable moment of CR7’s evening came before kick-off. While doing the usual warm-up exercises, the Portuguese striker, instead of attempting a trivial shot, saw fit to make a flying finte. Result? The ball practically hits the crossbar for a fantastic goal.
The video of CR7’s magic, released a few days after the match, quickly went viral on social media. Fans of the 5-time Ballon d’Or have highlighted the fact that it’s not the first time the striker has done something similar. In fact, the Portuguese scored the same in the autumn of 2016, during the first gathering of the Portuguese national team after the victory in the European Championship. The sprint and fitness may not be what they used to be, but the class remains intact.
