Ronaldo’s bicycle goal for Portugal is proof of persistence

Cristiano Ronaldo scored aspectacular bicycle kick against Faroe Islands

Cristiano Ronaldo was at his best once again. This time, Faroe Islands were the sorry victims.

The 32-year-old winger granted Portugal the lead with a sublime bicycle kick on the 3rd minute and that has got Twitter buzzing. From a clinical Bernardo Silva cross, the skipper could not announce his presence at the Estadio do Bessa in no other manner than with such a spectacular screamer.

For Cristiano’s fans around the globe, the “golazo” is enough reason to be proud of the superstar. However, it is important to note that the 2017 UEFA Best Player of the year has offered a lesson to all soccer lovers through the brilliant strike and that’s to never give up!

Indeed, the top icon has displayed persistence. Portugal’s favorite star has tried to score from a bicycle kick and finally, it came against the Landsliðið.

The top forward had a similar goal disallowed in a 3-0 UEFA Euro 2008 qualifier win against Azerbaijan. Interestingly, football fans still remember the incident and further reiterated that on Twitter. In a trolling mode, some also reminded CR7 followers of how Los Blancos’ talisman has yearned for such a strike over the years. Enjoy the tweets below:

That strike saw the Seleccao leader surpass Hungary legend Sandor Kocsis as the second player on Europe’s all-time top scorer list with 76 goals. Ronaldo added two more in the match to hit 78 international goals.

The European champions will be visitors to Hungary in their next 2018 World Cup qualifier at the Groupama Arena on September 3. That said, it offers the four-time Ballon d’Or winner another opportunity to up his international goal tally. Good luck champ and keep on being persistent!
