Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘Playstation goal’ for Real Madrid against Juventus in Champions League is talk of the world – CNN

He’d already scored a record 118 Champions League goals but this one was different.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s soaring, otherworldly overhead kick from the clouds elicited a standing ovation from the opposition supporters and left even Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane awestruck.
It was, Ronaldo himself said, “probably the best” of his entire career.
“It was spectacular,” reflected the Portuguese forward after Real had all but ended Juventus’s Champions League dream with a 3-0 first leg victory. “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. I tried it today and it came off.”
Ronaldo had given Real the lead after just three minutes earlier in their quarterfinal clash, prompting aggressive jeers of derision from the Juventus faithful. But suddenly the 41,507 inside the Allianz Stadium were rising to their feet as one.
“It was one of the most poignant moments of the night,” said Ronaldo. “To receive applause from a stadium like this, which has been graced by great players, is a unique experience.
