Class goal rightly said only thing that lets him down is his arrogance towards his fellow team mates but i think hes learnt that one man dont make a team but give him his due when you need a goal on the big stage he always pulls one out of the hat from somewhere and last night was just genius and everyone in the stadium applauded what they had witnessed ::
He's a class act. Never forgotten where he came from, works tirelessly for his own benefit but share the rewards with others. Rumoured to be very generous with his time, turning up to meet sick fans, paying for expensive treatments and insisting the press aren't informed. In his home town he's bankrolled all sorts of schemes
Wrt his teammates, there's that famous video of him at Portugal's penalty shootout inspiring a better player to set up.
Contrast that to Paul ince calling himself the guvnor whilst not being able to even watch as a less able centre back steps up to miss for England.
There have been players similar to Messi before, he just does it better than all previous models
Ronaldo is pretty much a new generation of footballer. Faster, stronger and better in the air than anybody his peers. As tricky as waddle, fast as Giggs, shoots like Gerrard and hunts goals like Ian rush as strong as drogba and as good in the air as shearer.
They say that the art of being a goal poacher is unteachable, yet Ronaldo learned the craft late on in his career. Never been done before. Imagine Ryan Giggs deciding to be van nistelrooy and that's Ronaldo career path.
