Cristiano Ronaldo. Straight up, straight in. No time to react, no time to even breathe. Perhaps not the best player, but definitely one of the best free kicks ever taken by CR.
There have been better goals than this, surely – I remember a Leighton Baines free kick against United that was a rocket into the top corner, beat van der Sar even though he tried to stop it.
If you’ve seen a better free kick, feel free to drop the link in the comments.
