- “November 27, 2007 against Sporting Lisbon” Perhaps serving as an indication of greater things to come, a young Cristiano Ronaldo, well into his young career, shows off a marvelous act of athleticism by leaping for a ball that appears to be simply beyond his reach and in a completely lateral position, displays deft precision by sending in a header scorching into the goal’s nets.
- “The Rabona” Also known as the cross kick, the jaw-dropping kick known as the Rabona is part of the vast range of arsenal that Cristiano Ronaldo utilizes at his disposal. Demonstrating it in almost every match he has competed in, Cristiano Ronaldo often uses this to mesmerize opponents in an effort to set up team mates for a timely strike at the goal. It is a method of kicking the ball where the kicking leg is wrapped behind the back of the standing leg – thus it being coined the cross kick. This is considered one of the more artistic kicks in football but it is also one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s best moves in carving out opponent defenses.
- “April 15, 2009 against FC Porto” Earning him the 2009 FIFA Goal of the Year award and the Top Manchester United Goal of the Decade, Cristiano Ronaldo’s 40-yard miracle against Porto seemed to have gained a following of its own. Facing a vast expanse of pitch, Cristiano Ronaldo settled for no less than a goal by rifling in a right-footed rocket that left the opposing team helpless.
- “October 23, 2007 against Dynamo Kiev” In this Champion’s League game, Cristiano Ronaldo showcased an adept mastery in dribbling by taking his defenders to school in one of his best moves. Creating a perfect set up to scoring a goal, Cristiano Ronaldo played with the ball’s trajectory by flipping it with the bottom of his foot. A split second later, pivoting with lightning reflexes, he quickly shot it into the back of the goal’s nets before opponents could realize what had just transpired.
- “August 4, 2010 against Club America” Real Madrid’s first friendly game in the pre-season once again proved Cristiano Ronaldo’s distinction as a game finisher. Tied 2-2 at the 82nd minute, Club America committed a costly foul that only setup the marquee player of that match to seal the deal. With his trademark sigh and dropped shoulders, Ronaldo fired in a well-placed shot over the wall of defenders and past the powerless goalkeeper. What made this scene of events one of the best moves in the Portuguese phenom’s career was that it proved to be a perfect continuation of his much-talked about Nike commercial in which he “wrote the future” of the world.
