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:
Not withstanding much like in Rome,Lisbon & now Milan Ronaldo was missing for Madrid.Yet he's called a "big game player" for that penalty ??

Can't believe they brought Ronaldo on just to take a penalty last night!

I might agree with Wenger that the Ballon D'or should be scrapped if Ronaldo wins it for waiting to score the last penalty in a shoot out.

Ronaldo looked liked he had a spray tan yesterday just in case he had to take the winning penalty so he could take his top off

I'm starting to dislike #Ronaldo for the simple fact he does naff all in a match then gets all the praise because he scored the last penalty

The last two CL finals that Real Madrid have played, Bale has outshone Ronaldo. Yet Ronaldo gets the headlines because of one penalty ?
