Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t need to do this to Manuel Pablo.
Ronaldo made the Internet buzz Saturday with an ankle-breaking move on Pablo in the first half of Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga (Spanish first division). The soccer superstar nutmegged Pablo with an “elastico” that left the veteran defender on the ground.
Pablo, 39, tried to stay on his feet as coaches have told him to do through the years, but Ronaldo’s “elastico” dribble made the Deportivo fullback lose his balance and fall to the turf.

Ronaldo’s jaw-dropping dribble didn’t end with his team scoring a goal, but that wasn’t the point of this particular post. Ronaldo probably will score in Real Madrid’s next game, anyway.
