Champions League: That goal, I didn't expect to score that goal - Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he was taken aback by the Juventus fans' reaction to his overhead kick during their 3-0 Champions League win. For a player at 33 to continue to deliver goals as he consistently does is something; to conceive and execute the second goal against Juventus required a bit of genius.

Ronaldo scored with a stunning overhead kick in Madrid's 3-0 win over 10-man Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

In appreciation, nearly all at the Allianz Stadium in Turin rose to the goal and the player that scored it, for a player whose type we may not witness for many years to come.

The report also indicated that the Champions League, which is one of the biggest club footballing events in the world, is pegged to generate at least 1.27 billion euros of revenue this season. He deserves all the credits.

Even coach Zinedine Zidane who is a master of scoring jaw-dropping goals, could not believe his eyes.

Sally Pearson expected to pull out of Commonwealth Games
This has been ongoing for a couple of years and it is unfortunate the timing is now. Then I went into some hurdle drills and run-throughs, just could not do it.

Defender Giorgio Chiellini also missed a good chance when he misdirected a header from a corner but Real was always menacing and Toni Kroos thumped a rising shot against the bar from 25 meters. It came at a time when Juventus were dominating the ball in the second half and had put the Real defence under a lot of pressure. I am happy for him. He is a unique player and can do this type of thing.

Chiellini: "I've never heard the fans of Turin applaud an opposing team's player until tonight". It was a spectacular piece of skill.

'When I was a kid, I liked Juventus and the fact their fans have applauded me will stay with me.

"This means they can be compared to Maradona and Pele for the way they ultimately are able to decide matches and trophies won by their teams".

"The longer he's with us, the better". Normal humans don't think along those lines on a football pitch, they think about how to win a game.

In the current season, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 13 goals in nine appearances.
