Cristiano Ronaldo's Post-Match Interview Has Completely Changed People's Opinion Of Him

Grant SmithApr 06, 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo's long time hopes were finally fulfilled when he scored that astonishing bicycle kick in the 64th minute of the quarter-final first leg in Turin versus Juventus on Tuesday.

Ibrahimovic marked his LA Galaxy debut with a spectacular long-range strike - part of a match-winning brace against LAFC - but might also have been referencing his wonderful overhead attempt for Sweden against England in 2012. The Portuguese global burst onto the world stage as a promising young winger with Manchester United before morphing into the goal scoring cyborg we continue to see with Real Madrid today. The reaction of Zinedine Zidane, the coach of Real Madrid is also going viral.

Just for good measure, Ronaldo broke another record by finding the net for his 10th consecutive Champions League game. "He has done everything here", tweeted former Real teammate Alvaro Arbeloa after the goal, which even prompted Juventus supporters to rise to their feet in applause.

Ronaldo is a champion at an extraordinary level.

The Champions League quarter final first leg matches are over and as is now customary, Uefa have selected their best XI from the four games. For me he's the best player in history.

If you know anything about Zlatan, you'll already know that he thinks his was better, too. As a player, the Frenchman scored plenty of stunning goals himself in Turin - but what he had just witnessed from Cristiano Ronaldo was special.

Recently retired defender Álvaro Arbeloa stated that: "Cristiano Ronaldo can leave planet earth and play with the martians". Despite not being as instantly eye-catching as some of his other efforts, it was voted the second-best goal in the competition that season and set Real on their way to a comfortable 3-0 win at Anfield.

Josh: Is there anything Cristiano Ronaldo can't do?

Whatever side of the argument you're on here, it's a treat to be able to watch both goals again and argue about it.

"It was one of the most poignant moments of the night", said Ronaldo.

Which goal was better he was asked.
