Cristiano Ronaldo may have pulled off the greatest skill move of his career on Saturday for Real Madrid against Espanyol.
The Portuguese attacker, with the match at 0-0, went with the elastico nutmeg.
To beat a player with the elastico or a nutmeg is one thing, but to pull them both off? Especially on the endline? That was a piece of magic.
Real Madrid fans on Twitter went wild, as they were pleased to see the change in Ronaldo’s game in the last few games. This is how Twitter reacted:
Simply brilliant from Ronaldo. pic.twitter.com/GateFP5LZr
