Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo nets stunning winner right into the top corner

Cristiano Ronaldo is unsurprisingly taking Italy’s Serie A by storm and Empoli couldn’t keep him off the scoresheet last night…

Comments

When Cristiano Ronaldo took his talents to Turin, you had to wonder was he joining Juventus to wind down his sparkling career.

The Portuguese footballing star is showing no signs of slowing down though, and he netted a brace away at Empoli last night to seal a 2-1 comeback victory for his new side.

The home outfit took hit the front in the 28th minute when Francesco Caputo neatly tucked it past Wojciech Szczesny to show Man United how to do it. Ronaldo then levelled matters nine minutes into the second half from the penalty spot.

However, it was his winner in the 70th minute that caught the eye as he picked up the ball 30 yards out and belted it into the top corner, leaving Ivan Provedel no chance of stopping it.

The brace of strikes were Ronaldo’s sixth and seventh goals in Serie A this season, moving him to second in the top goalscorers list behind Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek in first. You are here to see his winner though and you can watch it for yourself thanks to Eleven Sports below:
