Twtitter Is Slaughtering Cristiano Ronaldo For Champions League-Winning Penalty

Twtitter Is Slaughtering Cristiano Ronaldo For Champions League-Winning Penalty

In most cases you would be hailed a hero for scoring the winning goal in a European Cup Final.

And to the Real Madrid fans, that’s exactly what Cristiano Ronaldo will be.

The Portuguese superstar stepped up to the plate when it mattered most to coolly dispatch the deciding spot-kick in the Champions League Final last night against city rivals Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo’s celebration mirrored the one from two years ago when he scored from the spot in extra-time as he ripped off his shirt and lapped up every second.

When it comes down to it, the former Manchester United star has written himself into the history books yet again with his winning penalty in Milan.

But his performance overall on the night has been called into question by a number of punters on social media who are far from impressed with Ronaldo stealing all the glory with his penalty.

The Bernabeu striker – who netted 16 times in 13 appearances in the tournament – has been heavily criticised after the lacklustre 90 minutes which proceeded his winning penalty, with some believing that Ronaldo was upstaged by Welsh team-mate Gareth Bale.

Some football fans on Twitter have been having their say:
