There’s just no stopping him! Cristiano Ronaldo is irresistible in EVERY sense of the word, and this sick goal just sums up everything that is great about the man. The Portuguese legend scored the most audacious backheel flick goal at Euro 2016 on June 22 in a game against Hungary. Watch his goal here!
That’s why he’s one of the best to ever play the game! Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, hasn’t had the best tournament so far in Euro 2016, but he showed why even when he’s short of confidence he’s still the most feared in the game. The Portugal legend scored the most amazing back-heel goal against Hungary in a game Portugal had to get a positive result in. He really is just carrying his team right now, watch his sick goal!
Now, before the game started Cristiano was under immense pressure to deliver for his team. Without a goal in his opening two games, he was made the scapegoat for Portugal as they struggled in the early stages of Euro 2016. But all can surely be forgiven now, right?
With his team trailing 2-1 to the Hungarians, Cristiano got himself into a central position in the penalty area anticipating a cross from a teammate. The cross was whipped in, but was behind our hero who had to quickly change his body shape and manufacture a chance out of nothing.
But this is Cristiano, and anything is possible. Letting the ball drop between his legs, he impudently back-flicked it towards goal and past Hungarian goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly, who had absolutely no chance. It was pure cheek and incredible class from Cristiano, who earlier in the day was being lambasted by the media for throwing a reporter’s microphone into a lake while he was being asked if he was feeling the pressure. We think this goal shows he wasn’t!
Cristiano scored another goal later on in the game to earn his team a 3-3 draw, which meant they qualified for the last 16 in the competition. Incredible!
