Add this clip to Cristiano Ronaldo’s never-ending highlight reel.
The soccer superstar had the internet buzzing with delight Saturday when he outfoxed an opponent during Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Espanyol in La Liga (Spanish first division). Ronaldo used the popular (and difficult) “elastico” skill to nutmeg Espanyol defender David Lopez.
Ronaldo’s elastico didn’t result in a goal, but it served as a useful reminder of why he swept soccer’s most prestigious individual awards in 2016 and just might repeat the feat this year.
