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.
