There’s only 1 PSGAcademy

There's only one Arsenal_Analysis


FunchPalcon

but there are 11 amnezies


amnezie11

Yeah but I'm the only eleventh one


StratifiedBuffalo

PSGAcademy > FIFA


achilles-_-23

I see no God up here... Except me - PSGAcademy


Frick_KD

Such a sweet cross. Puts the keeper in an impossible position. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Great job by Bruno


Prthmsh

This is exactly same goal bruno scored against Everton where Rashford jumped for ball but didn't head it.


smushbros

Lmao love the competing titles


TheBrownMamba8

u/PSGAcademy had no worthy opponents so now he’s going against his own uploads


Gytarius626

He’s playing both sides


LordSpeechLeSs

So that he'll always come up on top


FunnyPointOfView

Honestly in the running for all time great TV quote


SemiCurrentGuy

Makes sense that the only person who can beat him...is himself


Oreallyman

He needs a padawan


ima_be_the_greatest

On Monday the king claims a goal


Stellewind

To be fair, if CR7 is not there, the goal keeper will have no problem catching such a slow shot. CR7 definitely helped it happen, but yeah it's not his goal.


Xehanz

While true, you can make the same argument for most goals from freekicks.


p5yron

How exactly? In this, the keeper is expecting Ronaldo to try and hit the ball in a different direction and is hoping to save that, thus, getting faked out by the ball still travelling in the same direction however slowly it did.


DarthBane6996

Did he claim the goal though? He ran straight to Bruno and didn't siu or anything


Blue_Marine

He didn't. He just hugged Bruno and celebrated. Bruno said he thought Ronaldo had scored so he (Bruno) celebrated as if it was Ronaldo's goal, tho, at the end. And no, there's no video of him being upset lol The guy also celebrated Bruno's penalty afterwards.


chitownbulls92

To be fair, Ronaldo did have his part to play. The Keeper and the 2 defenders were clearly marking Ronaldo. Not to mention, Bruno clearly meant to cross it into the box as opposed to go for goal lol


AyanC

Attack wins you games, Bruno wins you titles.


Fugacity-

Ronaldo's ego is so big that head extends past his physical body


BigSortzFan

If it was a WC final it would be called the hair of god goal probably


NotanAlt23

He didnt do the SIUUU so it was pretty obviously not his goal


29adamski

ITV* commentator going on about it being a great header lol. He makes no contact.


Alpha_Jazz

And an awkward silence during the slow motion


KoloHickory

ITV commentator doubled down during the slow mo replays lol


paranoid30

The Italian one did the same, he even went on to describe the "gentle caress" Ronaldo supposedly gave to the ball, "just enough to move his hair a bit". Pure poetry


Settl

Yeah on ITV it was "The deftest of touches"


sealed-human

The Harry Kane 'swear on my daughters life' hairline touch


MionelLessi10

He willed the goal into existence, no contact is necessary.


fuckkkofff

Yup, had he not been there, the keeper would just easily catch the ball, the goal is Bruno's but some credit does go to Ronaldo for confusing the keeper


joe4553

What he really did was just confuse the goalie.


BusShelter

He's not so sure now haha


ohdearkhalana

that was painful to watch


50lipa

ITV guy calling it a perfect touch by Ronaldo as replay is shown and he clearly makes no contact rofl


pooorky

'he knew exactly what he was doing' lmao


Superjunker1000

He’s still at it.


wimbardo

That’s how great it is! So great there’s no contact!

So deft it's not in fucking existence.


Worldly_Industry_881

Imagine being so class that you don't have to touch a ball to effect its path. Legend of the game


SteinerElMagnifico42

Think it’s ally McCoist this is gotta be after 6 cans, no idea what he’s on about


david13guet

"Ben Kan Tour"


crispello

He’s had a hard on for him all game


Stuckkz

French bein sports commentator was shouting: "This is the GOAT, he's the best player of all time!!!" Didn't react when they showed replay ofc


Perpete

Yup, that was weak from the commentator.... "le meilleur joueur de la planète" => The best player in the world


superhoffy

Even live I was utterly convinced the *lack* of contact was what fooled the keeper.


zedislongdead

Same on ITV. Bunch of fanboys


29adamski

Just realised that's what I'm watching lol.


XHeraclitusX

Ally McCoist on ITV talking about Ronaldo getting the faintest of touches, meanwhile every replay shows the ball floating over his head. This will be giving to B. Fernandes, well done to OP for realising this. Hilarious that Ronaldo was celebrating, knowing full well it didn't touch him.


fijozico

Bruno has been fire for us this World Cup <3


TonyMartial786

nice to see as a united fan especially since everyone was shitting on him in the euros when he didn’t even start for you guys


Michael90_Denmark

Bruno literally carried United last season. He had some fuck ups, but he also scored and assisted some very vital goals.


CrossXFir3

Yeah but he only had like 20 g/a so he was shit cause the 2 seasons prior he had like 35 g/a


Michael90_Denmark

true, but a lot of the 1-0 victories were from either bruno goal or assist. He worse than his usual standard, but still united most important player in terms of points won.


CrossXFir3

Oh I'm pointing out how silly it is. His worst season still netted him the most chances created in the league of any player. Bruno had a poor season for him last season. But most CAM's in the league would think with his numbers that they'd had the best season of their career.


Michael90_Denmark

Agree, he is very consistent. Even when he is bad, he plays at a high level. Currently, he is Portugals best player, and non of the others come close to him.


Kuuskat_

I agree he is their best player, but >non of the others come close to him. i would give a shout for Bernardo as well. One of the best players on the pitch yesterday, went bonkers for 90 minutes straight.


LN17

Good to see him finally deliver in nationals too.


arnm7890

He's about to explode at club level too now that he won't always try to find Ronaldo. Wouldn't be surprised at all if we saw that early United-version of him again


santorfo

Well he's back to being undoubtedly the most important player on the pitch, even Pogba is gone now and he has Eriksen and Antony compared to some of the players he had when he was playing absolute heroball first and second season


elclarkio

I thought he played his best football along Pogba, Pogba let him play more free. It showed 100% when Pogba was injured because he was running himself into the ground, trying to do the role of both, he look knackered.


ThankYouOle

yeah, rather than Pogba who most of time got injured, now United have Case and Eriksen behind him, so bruno can be more free, and if he stuck, Eriksen will help to make creative pass. i really love this mid trio, they are complementary for each of them.


racingfanboy160

>i really love this mid trio, they are complementary for each of them. Our most balanced midfield in quite a while tbf


freakedmind

Best player for Portugal thus far


lencastre

Especially given he looks like a feather weight


sarthakmahajan610

His weight is concentrated in his balls


Karasinio

Lol and what's wrong with that? Best players in the world are small.


Technical-Morning-35

How would that change anything?


Aszneeee

people probably expect everyone to be 80kg shredded body


samehada121

For real, has this guy heard of a certain small famous player lol


MashedHair

Portugal [1] - 0 Uruguay - Harry Kane 54'


Drac0rex

I swear on my daughter I scored this goal


Gerf93

Kinda dark considering Ronaldo’s last year


bobdylansmoustache

Didn't they just correct it in-stadium? That was definitely Bruno's goal.


UltiL

The UK commentators acknowledged the stadium announcer crediting the goal to Bruno, and they’re still digging in saying Ronaldo got a touch. Look like fools


pulcherrimum

Bruno’s goal. But it’s not going in without Ronaldo.


ltplummer96

Without Ronaldo, the keeper easily claims it. Ronaldo, however, did not touch it. It should be Bruno’s goal 100%


Rickcampbell98

Tbf, without ronaldo Bruno doesn't cross it lmao, great ball that deserved a goal and I guess it got it lol.


SadNYSportsFan-11209

Idt he took credit anyways. He knew it.


coolwool

If he was convinced that he scored that goal he would have done "the celebration".


TheKingIsBackYo

Imagine if Bruno and Ronaldo play on the same team. Would be unstoppable


wilyacalmdown

Definitely Bruno


Zloggt

Honestly impressed how it *looked* like Ronaldo touched it…but it was a ball that was all Bruno’s effort instead!


genohgeray

It's an easy save without Ronaldo there though, it's harsh to say he has no effort in it.


Zloggt

Oh yeah, of course. It’s a team effort, after all


Glad_Consequence2580

He scored one for us against Everton a few years ago that was identical, the almost header was by rashford


theglasscase

FIFA have officially given the goal to Bruno Fernandes. The funny thing is that Ronaldo trying to head the ball almost certainly distracted Rochet enough to stop him catching or touching the cross, but it's definitely not his goal.


DerpSenpai

Ofc, else this would be have been the worst goalkeeping of the WC. A shot with that speed shouldn't ever be a goal except when the GK is faked by another player like this


mister_dupont

Ronaldo was important for that goal, Completely fooled the keeper.


jwinter01

Yeah it was an easy catch otherwise


JJ-Bittenbinder

Everyone is trying to rail on Ronaldo for missing it so fast they don’t realize it wouldn’t have gone in without him. Or at least I hope the keeper would’ve been competent enough to save that if he wasn’t there


dinosaur_possum

justice for bruno


Udmmi

Ronaldo seems to not take credit. He runs straight to Bruno Fernandes and doesn't do his signature celebration


samehada121

I would’ve fucking died if he did a full-fledged SIIIUUUUU


travmps

My favorite is all the people acting like he'll never celebrate a teammate's goal. He wears his heart on his sleeve for the national team--winning is the only thing cares about for them, and he doesn't care who gets it done.


DerpSenpai

Yeah when it's national team he always celebrates, specially a really needed goal. In clubs .. it depends on who and when (due to club situation.) Ofc I mean how hard he celebrates. For the latest Man U goals he just jogs and then hi fives everyone


locust098

Yes but that goes against everything they’ve established that he’s selfish and stat padding


dill_pickles

/r/soccer apparently doesn’t know what Siuuu is


TRx1xx

Yeah but the r/soccer comedians need their upvotes

Shhh don’t let them hear that. It spoils their narrative

Ronaldo with the bamboozle


TimathanDuncan

Bruno is Portugal's best player


ima_be_the_greatest

Yea but Uruguay's right back sold


DarthNihilus1

Nah Bruno turned and fired that off on a dime, not much you can do really. You expect your center back and goalkeeper to handle that.


_T0nyGunk_

He ran towards Bruno to celebrate, he knows it was Bruno's. Dunno what's the confusion here regarding him being upset


jared2294

Everyone mocking Ronaldo but if he’s not there then that’s an easy catch Plus he didn’t SIUUUU


A_Reddit_Ninja

Ronaldo: if i celebrate enough then the goal will be mine


CPTSOAPPRICE

he didn’t siuu tbh that’s why I figured he didn’t touch it


[deleted]

He shrugged his arms when bruno asked if he touched it and went straight to bruno.


Amoeba_Critical

You're right. He shouldn't celebrate with his teammates actually


TheDangerousAnt

He went to Bruno right away lol


Darth-Baul

“Nice pass bro SIU”


aveniner

Harry Kane special


Alpha_Jazz

The Kane one was a lot more contentious than this, it genuinely isn’t close


MichuAtDeGeaBa_

Obvious no contact on both of them imo


cobrakai11

It would only be Harry Kane special if Ronaldo swore on his son's life that it was his goal.


Number333

[For the uninitiated](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bnsc-7TJDUI)


gintoki-sama

Straight up garbage like this being upvoted is typical r/soccer bullshit. Man didn’t even celebrate and went straight to Bruno.


ExcellentCut5863

He literally ran straight to Bruno to hug him, didn't even do a celebration


bobdylansmoustache

u/A_Reddit_Ninja: If I comment like Ronaldo did a siuuuu, then Reddit will think Ronaldo did a siuuuu


erldn123

Yeah there was just a definitive replay that proved he didn't touch it at all. Had McCoist fooled for ages lol


SanSeb

He didn’t even celebrate. What is up with these blatant lies and hate towards Ronaldo?


Relative_Section999

Reddit lol. As they walk back after celebrating he clearly says he isn’t sure that he touched the ball, regardless great positioning and jump from CR7


bobdylansmoustache

Hating Ronaldo helps them make it through the week


auctus10

Welcome to r/soccer


Hexolyte

yeah this subreddit is actually garbage,idiots have a massive hate boner for ronaldo,it's ridiculous


PanduMasta

They literally tried to delude themselves into believing this is Bruno's solo even though the goal would never happen if it wasn't for Ronaldo. These mfers are hopeless.


joeDUBstep

Yeah he def was decoy/distraction for the keeper


FuckMinoRaiola

Ronny trying to statpad


ClearSights

Goal doesn’t go in without him absolutely terrifying the goalkeeper


[deleted]

Ya he can still celebrate, ran straight to Bruno either way. They got eliminated by Uruguay last time they played its normal for them to be excited


mysterieblik

You joke but if Ronaldo wasn't there it would've been an easy save for the goalie


BipartizanBelgrade

xScares/90 off the charts. Man must've gone to Monsters University

forsakenpear

But that doesn’t mean he scored lol


Mental_Opportunity_9

Yeah but that doesn't mean he scored it lol


MasPatriot

it touched his hitbox


Multoxx

No. That’s why it’s Bruno’s goal


Blehe

If he still had his Goldie locks, probably a lock of hair would’ve touched the ball


neefhuts

Jesus christ the Ronaldo hate boner. Without him it wasnt a goal, and he immediatly goes to bruno to celebrate. No matter what he does you lot hate him, if he didnt celebrate you’d say he didn’t because he didn’t score himself


Hopeful_Feature3554

Dude didnt even do the SIUU cuz he knew(even ran towards bruno), but r/soccer gotta make dumb assumptions


rubbishtake

The cameras focus on Ronaldo but he actually just runs to celebrate with Bruno


xDeezyz

/u/PSGAcademy says it's Fernandes's goal. Therefore it's Fernandes's goal.


Sh405

McCoist has tripled-down on it being an excellent finish in which Ronaldo "absolutely knew what he was doing" lmao. He's even seen slow mo replays and he's still sticking to his guns. FFS.


theglasscase

There's maybe one angle where it looks like Ronaldo deflected it a bit, and about 7 others where it looks like he didn't took it at all, but McCoist is convinced.


TonyTuck

Ronaldo help to score the goal the same way a player offside interfering with a goal is ruled out. Ronaldo confused the goalkeeper, he did not scored it but he was a important part of it.


dota_3

Lmao the salt in this thread. Easy catch if Ronaldo wasn't there.


SANDEMAN

Soccer really mad at Ronaldo for celebrating a goal


TheLastDrops

Extremely impressive. According to FIFA, Eusebio just overtook Ronaldo to become the highest scorer for Portugal at World Cups, 8 years after his death.


dghjncddvnj

Bruniano Fernaldo 54’


RossoMarra

The Bernoulli effect induced by Ronaldo’s head did deviate the ball. Geometrical contact was not necessary


masoyama

Lol credit for that goal is gonna be controversial. I see you OP


Gollem265

Seems pretty obvious to me


reedemerofsouls

He definitely didn't touch it. Idk about who officially gets credit but Bruno is the one who scored it


LegendRazgriz

It doesn't go in without Ronaldo spooking the shit out of the keeper, but Ronaldo did not score that.


VenerableSpace_

Nothing wrong with Ronaldo's celebration IMO. He played as much part in that goal as Bruno by making the run and its affect on the defender and keeper. He ran right to Bruno as well.


ActionWaction

RIP C. Ronaldo to score betters


bobdylansmoustache

A few r/soccer comedians with the "dead kid" jokes in that other thread...


bohlah00

We don't talk about Bruno
