There’s basically nothing Cristiano Ronaldo can’t do on a football pitch – except maybe a rabona free-kick.
For that, we have to go to the virtual world of FIFA 15. A video uploaded to YouTube by 101 Great Goals shows Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a pretty ridiculous rabona free-kick from 20 yards out against Barcelona.
We’ve been treated to some real classic rabona goals already this season in real life, from Erik Lamela’s in the Europa League to Sean Geddes in the FA Trophy. It seems to be the flavour of the month at the moment.
I don’t think even Cristiano Ronaldo, presumptive Ballon d’Or winner for a second straight season, would be outrageous enough to try this in a real match though.
Smack bang in the middle of the pitch, 20 yards out, virtual Ronaldo steps up and rabonas the ball into the top corner before celebrating in trademark Ronaldo style.
