Cristiano Ronaldo scored an exceptional header on Wednesday during the game against Sampdoria. The Portuguese striker managed to jump 2m56cm high, just 12cm below the top bar of the goal which was so incredible that it wasn’t long before lots of people had taken to social media to rave about.
Sampdoria 1 – 2 Juventus
Yesterday, during the Italian championship match between Sampdoria in Genoa and Juventus in Turin, Cristiano Ronaldo managed to jump 2m56cm in the air to score Juventus’ second goal of their away game.
Thanks to the Portuguese player’s talent, Juve ended up winning the match 2-1 and securing first place in Series A of the championship. The Italian championship is looking close this year, but Juventus appears to be in a pretty good position to take home the trophy at the end of the season.
Here are some of the best comments on Twitter about his goal.
This isn’t the first time that CR7 has stood apart from the rest because of his incredible acrobatic skills in international football. During his time at Real, he scored against his current team, Juventus, following an unusual acrobatic flip which was so perfect, that even the Juve supporters had to cheer.
