Cristiano Ronaldo goal Vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Watch Portuguese international end his freekick drought from a world-class kick.
Cristiano Ronaldo has once again silenced his critics, as the Portuguese International ended his freekick drought by scoring a goal against Lokomotiv Moscow in the beginning minute of the game.
The goal was a mesmerizing sight to see, over where Ronaldo replicates a knuckleball shot from his older days and the ball bounces off just ahead of the goalkeeper to trick hi, which enforces a blunder by him, giving Juventus a 1-0 lead at the start of the game.
Indeed, Ronaldo got help by Guilhermre, as the ball went past between his legs to give the Portuguese International his first goal from the spot-kick in Juventus colours.

The 32-year-old star has previously been criticised for his poor conversion rate from free-kicks, and he still holds the worst conversion rate in Serie A for it.
Many suggested that Ronaldo is past his days when he used to score glorious goals from freekicks, and now should pass the responsibility to other players in the team.
but, with this, Ronaldo certainly silenced his doubters for a while. Amidst all of this, Ronaldo was about to be stripped away from the credits for the goal, as Aaron Ramsey was appeared to make the contact with the ball while it was passing inside.
However, replays indicated that the ball was already past the goal line, and even Ramsey pointed towards Ronaldo, signalling that his teammate had scored the goal.
Although things lasted for a few minutes for Juventus, as the visitors equalized the score just a few minutes later with a strike from Aleksey Miranchuk. Later, Lokomotiv Moscow was seen making even more decisive attempts. Thus, the Italians have to hold themselves.
