VIDEO: Christiano Ronaldo scores a wonderful free-kick to restore Man United Lead
gainst Norwich, Cris’tiano Ronaldo once aga’in put on one of his shows. Another hat-tr’ick (the 60th of his career), shortly after th’e one he scored against Tott’enham, to give Manchester United a ha’rd-fought 3-2 win and put him one goal away from 1_0_0 in the Premier Lea’gue.
The Portuguese star came to t’he rescue by scoring the winning goal from a free-kick. It wa’s a goal that was well worth three points and the 12t’h Premier League free-kick goal of his career. H’e is only behind James Ward-Prowse and Davi’d Beckham in the hist’orical ranking of free-kick scorers.
But the goal also had anot’her important connotation. CR7 rediscovered th’e feeling of sco’ring a free-kick, something that had not happ’ened since July 4, 2020 against Torino. Al’most two years later. T’he 48th free-kick of his club car’eer (he has scored another 10 with Portugal) wa’s a long time co’ming.
