Who else but Cristiano Ronaldo would strike first on soccer’s biggest stage?
Just 20 minutes into Saturday’s highly anticipated UEFA Champions League final, the Real Madrid star gave his club an early lead over Juventus with a clinical finish inside the box.
Ronaldo’s quick strike off a pass from teammate Dani Carvajal put Real Madrid up 1-0 and made him the first player in Champions League history to score in three separate Champions League finals. He also joined Argentinian legend Alfredo Di Stefano as the only players to score in three different European Cup finals.
Just another day in the life of the Portuguese superstar.
