AddictedToThisShit

The one time I refused to believe, he actually scored lmao.


Mathema_thicks

Tbf he looks more surprised to have scored it than I did when I saw that he scored a freekick


NetflixAndNikah

"How did I just make that....oh right, I'm me."


Reduttt

They told him United could miss out on top 4 and he went God mode. This man just loves to save clubs and careers I swear, he could probably get a club from the relegation zone to UCL football just like that


Rand0mPixels

“i will eat my hat if ronaldo scores this free kick” - me 5 seconds before ronaldo scored the free kick

lotteriakfc

He did a hat trick


KingYeezy422

ah you clever cunt. that was great


Regressive_Maniac

Fucking genius, lmao


Midnight_Debauchery

A funny joke on r/soccer? What next?


MaidikIslarj

Ronaldo scoring a free kick? Pfft, yeah right


ricdvs

Bon appétit


sedikushjam

Lmao same, i am a big ronaldo fan but even i was like „tf ronaldo taking the free kick for man“ lol


peteythefool

Yeah, whenever I'm watching the Portuguese NT I always let out a big sigh whenever he prepares to take the fk, especially when Bruno was almost always on fk duty in Sporting, and was great at it, Raphael Guerreiro also has a great foot, and Ronaldo either goes full send knocks down a satellite or buries it in some poor bloke's body. Yet when he always seems to be able to come in clutch.


SadNYSportsFan-11209

It feels like he only scores clutch ones now Vs Spain and today


AnfieldBoy

Only scores when a hatrick is on the line.


DerGutterSnipen

Only 4 years since the Spain one


SadNYSportsFan-11209

Yea he’s been that bad lately lmao. I know he had just one with Juve. And maybe one with Portugal in that timespan. It’s really like once a year lol


doubleABC

I was 100% sure he would hit the wall lol


accountee

Mad Ronaldo best Ronaldo


SundaenkVillashire

Post phone smack Ronaldo best Ronaldo


EmperorLelouch99

Holy shit its been 84 years


honestlynotBG

Ronaldo's last free kick goal was against Torino in 2020 Ronaldo's last free kick goal for United was against City in 2009 Been a long wait regardless


Tyrannosaurusallegri

Didn’t he score a free kick against Sweden in 2020 during an international break in fall?


braveen10

yep it was his 100th international goal


MissingLink101

So he only scores free kicks for landmark goals (his 50th league hat trick today)


zeazemel

and 60th career hat trick


Psychomantis200

His "once in a year" free kick banger


Zacuery

Sooo there won’t be one in Qatar?

SparklyEarlAv32

WHO HAS DISTURBED MY?! oh it's you


HeyLookJollyRanchers

Explain, idiot We found another Ronaldo hattrick


mayjaz43

Free-kick Ronaldo hits different


Goat_6_

Since he has left real Madrid how many goals did Madrid score from fk? People told me he was holding Isco back


austin_zaia

Ramos, Bale ,Benzema were decent takers. I don't remember Madridistas wanting Isco specifically to take the fk. Maybe it was rival fans who disrespected Ronaldo. Bale was equal or better to many. Also ,James was very good too. But, I don't think Madrid fans seriously considered any of them as he was already sharing it with Bale. Juve was different as Pjanic and Dybala had good records. But, I don't think neither of them have good records after they don't play with him anymore. Messi suddenly becoming so lethal more than before got people questioning him really more than anything imo. Ronaldo also definitely got worse . That is also true. I don't understand why he doesn't curl half of the times. He's actually good when he tries it. But , he's stubborn in doing the knuckle ball and I think that's the most stupid part of his game..like can't you just switch it up much more?


Howdareme9

Isco?🤣


Goat_6_

That was the conversation back then, believe it or not. Isco would score a lot of goals if Ronaldo let him take the fk lmao


BigEasyMob

Isco barely plays now so we’ll never know


achilles-_-23

*surprised Pikachu face*


MrKalyoncu

*surprised ~~Pikachu~~ Pukkichu face*


abibyama

For real when was the last time he scored a Free kick?


Dispari7y

Sweden in the Nations League, late 2020.


masuke2

i think he scored once for juve


honestlynotBG

It was against Torino in 2020


Stakoman

Saving his team once again... 37 year old. Damn


kameecoding

tap-in, header, free-kick


fahad_k91

The ronaldo special


epicmarc

I love how the "Ronaldo special" changes every time


callzor

Thats the Ronaldo Special! SEWEY


Top-Software-1507

Simple as that bro


Xanian123

Krista Ronaldo, baby!


moe_q8

Hes scored so many goals, simply scoring is a ronaldo special.


Lack_of_Plethora

Goals have now been renamed 'ronaldos' in his honour


PortugeseMagnifico

Nah the special would be a pen instead


Staind1410

Still time


iamtherealgrayson

Man was genuinely surprised it went in he didn't even sui


DefinitelyMoreThan3

Ronaldo has scored the same number of goals in this match as Messi has scored in Ligue 1 this season. Timeless.


Prthmsh

Again


Quantum_Crayfish

Is it 08


Ledlazer

He's determined to carry United's cold, dead corpse across the finish line


k-mysta

He will do everything he can to not miss UCL, I hope


DerpSenpai

Probably has a clause to nope the fuck out


EnsconcedScone

Hey we can’t be picky at this point I’ll fucking take it 😭


Miniatom

Fine. I'll do it myself


King-Meister

Spurs all again.


tobiascuypers

"HE CANT KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT"


sILAZS

Dread from it, run from it.


PowellOnPowellOff

Header, tap in and Fk. Reminiscent of Wolfsburg hat trick.


ErsanKhuneri

That fk was something else tho. It went to only place where it could pass the players. It was something else really. And it was 6 years ago damn.


04201969

The Portsmouth one I think is his best. Literally the perfect free kick. EDIT: [this one](https://youtu.be/t0dgGSFWhno)


Therinn

If he’s scoring free kicks, God himself wants us to get top 4


Corteaux81

God, Brighton and Southampton.


manInTheWoods

And West Ham? Please?


LocationContent222

aged well.


TalksWithDogs

Seriously, despite United's effort, you guys still came out with the 3 points. Top 4 is achievable.


RunnyRose

Smashing a kid's phone somehow buffed his freekick stats


SundaenkVillashire

Phone is a registered squad member of Everton if you didn’t know.


systemCF

Ruthlessness +1 | (Secret Buff) Free Kick Shot Power +1


CheckElegant1774

Dread it, run from it...


King-Meister

Scripted! 50th club hatttrick. At OT.


harshmangat

2 hattricks in the league in one season after having 1 since RVP in like 7 years Of course it had to be him Edit: 2 since RVP Forgot about Bruno’s


King-Meister

Probably the only 37 year-old to have two hattricks in a top 5 league? I am just assuming.


coolwool

It's one of these stats where you can be quite confident in that statement without looking it up.


ltplummer96

I don’t think anyone got two hat tricks aged 37+. There’s Claudio Pizarro, Teddy Sheringham, Joaquin, Silvio Piola and Tony Carascino who’ve scored a hat trick 37+ but not sure if they’ve done it twice.


rather_retarded

Surprised Ibra didn’t manage it


mayjaz43

Shows the gulf in class. Bang average season but gets in two PL hattricks.


FPXAssasin11

Shows how high his standards are, when he's tied for 3rd as the best goal-scorer in the league, as a 37-year-old, and people say he's having an "average season" which, to be fair, I would somewhat agree.


Melticus-A

He’s 37 and plays for a piss poor team. He would’ve been so much better for City


pacexmaker

I hate how right you are.


Bazurke

We also got one from Bruno against Leeds


Xifajk

With still plenty of games for him to get another hat trick in!


RIPinPeaceHypejob

The phone scandal was merely CR7 finding new ways to motivate himself for this game. He really does seem to find a new level when people are ragging on him. How many other premier league footballers can use a clout chasing council estate Mum as fuel for a hat trick? It sure isn't traditional and by the book, you won't see coaches teaching it but it seems to work for him. Keep on slapping those Scouse kids Ronnie, we know it comes from a good place.


King-Meister

Incensed Ronaldo is the most dangerous Ronaldo.


peteythefool

It goes angry Ronaldo (see the games after the Simeone genital thingy and after Blatter made fun of him), noodle hair Ronaldo, moustache Ronaldo, Ronaldo and last but not least secretly injured Ronaldo.


K_S96

Noodle hair Ronaldo was something else


zshaan6493

Top Ramenaldo


tbwarrior

One day we'll have grey hair ronaldo leading Lisbon to ucl


Errudito

With a little more words this could be an epic copypasta


delidl

It’s true though. Ronaldo always seems to find an extra gear if he gets heavily criticised before the match


SadNYSportsFan-11209

That mentality is what the rest of this squad needs


Charlie_Yu

Great but why we need Ronaldo to save our arse vs Norwich


niallw1997

If United get top 4 the rest of the league need to hang their heads in shame. We are fucking terrible.


dracogladio1741

Could not agree more. Most of our players aren't arsed, some are in terrible form, a few good ones injured. How are we even drawing let alone winning games is unbelievable.


SweetMojaveRain

Ronaldo now has 20+ Goals with one of the worst united sides ive ever seen in my life, truly his greatest achievement


JerryChrist1988

This sounds like Jose saying his greatest achievement was 2nd with utd. Vibes


Dobblehale

It's not really fair if we get to have Pukki and you dont get to have Ronaldo


longconsilver13

Wtf is he allowed to do that anymore?


WalterHenderson

Judging by his reaction, it looks like even he was surprised that it went in.


MaraudngBChestedRojo

I think he was just more happy to take the lead and not draw home against fucking Norwich


ReaperX24

He did it for the story. Could not fuck that one up.


Legendary-Anubis

Somethings wrong I can feel it.


hlsp

Ronaldo saw that Pukki v Ronaldo graphic from earlier this week and took that personally.


jd451

*Michael Jordan intensifies* Jokes aside though, I can't wait to see The Last Siu documentary on netflix

Temporary_Explorer65

surely needs an nsfw tag


Boudi04

Fun fact: This was Uniteds first win in over a month. In their last win, Ronaldo also scored a hat-trick. I think its pretty safe to say that he isn't the problem.


Ugandan_Red_Sonic

Well, if LeBron doesn't score 50, the Lakers lose.


vietlinh12hoa

This fact is not fun for United.


Gbuchanan1

Christ


AngryWizard10

It's one of those days again.

Clutch just being clutch.

21 goals in this United side. Keep Ronaldo’s name out yo fucking mouth.

rob2829

I don’t expect that to go in tbh, good strike


[deleted]

This is like the Spain world cup game.


04201969

One of his best games. He was the embodiment of inevitable that day.


fcuk_username

I would call Sweden game. Where he was embodiment of inevitable.


RRR92

Without Ronaldo we would of finished 3rd in that CL group and be 11th in the league yet people still say hes the problem….. nuts


wutzefak

No mate, without him we would have won the treble, can't you see he is the problem


vietlinh12hoa

We won treble in 99 without him. He's the problem


Red_Jester-94

Damn that 14 year old Christiano, holding Man U back in 1999


Infra-roodborstje

They're absolutely delusional just like juventus fans who said the same thing.


Youngest_boss

Wait! Is this the same guy that was United’s problem


iRegretLastNight

When it comes to United, pundits and "journalists" will manufacture controversy with our best players any time we are struggling because it gets clicks. Then gullible morons from our fanbase and around the world will buy into it and soon enough some awful talking points are common.


vietlinh12hoa

Unfortunately, people are so stupid nowadays


SundaenkVillashire

Lol all those articles are pure clickbait garbage if you are talking about Ten Hag And Ronaldo not being in plans, problem child etc.. man is machine


DejanD27

He only scored 3, finished

LilDiamondtoxic

NO FUCKING WAY


Depressedkid1998

Is every single fucking goal he has scored for united an important one?? From losing to tie, or losing to “less losing” or tying to winning? Does anyone know? Every single goal i remember he’s always scored an important one, it’s never a 3-0 to 4-0


Romeisterer

Only one of His goals this season was “stat pad” , every single one of the others were win or tie


Shekster

Yet people are still braindead enough to say he's holding the team back...


has150099

Yh literally every goal he’s scored this season has been important, only the goal against Burnley in December wasn’t a tieing or winning goal, he scored it when they were 2-0 up


bigcortex

We haven’t had many 3-0 leads. All our games have been struggles.


trugbee1203

Wait I thought that was illegal?

At this point Maguire will score an OG to overshadow Ronaldo


Luc4_Blight

There are a lot of things wrong with United, Ronaldo ain't one of them.


Marine-Biol-George

He is the Goat of soccer in my opinion. Not saying any other player isn’t but in my humble opinion he is the greatest! I am a Manchester United fan so I might have some bias lol


CerealBit

Flashback CR7

KillerZaWarudo

NO FUCKIGN WAY A RONALDO FREE KICK GOAL IN 2022


SaberToothedPussyCat

PSG academy is such a hater. Won't put great goal tags on any of Ronaldo's goals and also won't put hat trick next to his hat trick goals.


FirstGeneralRavioli

*Amazing goal*: European commentators: Goal! What a nice and stunning goal!

Galactus1701

Vintage Cristiano is in the house!


Exhibit101

r/soccer's day ruined lmao...


godii_17

They assured me he would never score from those again


_MonteCristo_

I genuinely think the average r/soccer user thinks free kicks are basically the 3-point shot of soccer and you should be scoring them 33-40% of the time


llendo

Had to be him


Manga_Sans

He was so surprised he actually scored lmao.


King-Meister

His eyes became so wide lol. Like that Factos one 👀 just eyeballs in the middle


pugsftw

The madlad did it!


ManNamedBilly

ronaldo heard everyone talking shit about his free kicks


TheDangerousAnt

The best "liability" in club football

The biggest liability is that rancid defense

Where’s the GREAT GOAL tag???? Mods????

There’s just something so satisfying about seeing Ronaldo score a free kick in a Manchester United jersey.
