Solid proof that Cristiano Ronaldo is shit at football after all

He's not all that

Simon Lloyd

Yeah, so what if he’s just won his fourth Ballon d’Or? Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t all that.

And before you start trying to tell us otherwise, let it be known that we can back such a statement up with hard evidence – which comes in the form of a tweet sent by a Barcelona supporter with a Lionel Messi profile picture.

Ronaldo and his Real Madrid teammates were in action in Japan on Thursday morning as they took on Club America of Mexico in the semi-finals of the Fifa Club World Cup.

Already leading thanks to Karim Benzema’s opening goal in first half stoppage time, Ronaldo made a right mess of his opportunity to double the European Champions’ lead in the 66th minute.

Well inside the opponent six-yard box with an open goal at his mercy, Ronaldo somehow managed *not* to nod the ball into the empty net as a cross fell kindly to him.

Sure, some Ronaldo fanboys will try and say that Benzema’s attempts to head the ball home might have distracted the Portugal captain from applying the finish, but we’re taking a different view. A poor finish from a hugely-overrated 499-club career goal-scoring, multi-award winning football player…

… Actually, make that 500. He added Real’s second of the game in stoppage time to cap a 2-0 victory.

We’re still not convinced, and we doubt whoever runs ‘Visca Barça‘ are, either.
