Ronaldo: Sex better than my best goal

The Juventus star revealed that his overhead kick for Real Madrid against his current side in April 2018 is his pick for his favourite goal ever, but it does not compare to being with his current partner. Ronaldo connected with a cross from Dani Carvajal to score an incredible goal in the 2017-18 Champions League quarter-final first leg. Upon seeing the goal, the home faithful in Turin gave Ronaldo a standing ovation, despite the Portugal star scoring for the visiting team. That goal would help see Real Madrid past Juventus into the semi-finals, where they would overcome Bayern Munich before then beating Liverpool in the final for their third consecutive Champions League win. Speaking to Piers Morgan in an interview on ITV, the 34-year-old has admitted the goal against the Old Lady was his favourite, but said he didn’t rate it above his experiences with Rodriguez between the sheets. “No, not [when compared] with my Geo, no!” Ronaldo said as he laughed at the question from Morgan. “I tried to score this goal for many, many years,” Ronaldo said. “I had scored 700-odd goals but I hadn’t done this. I thought: ‘Finally I had scored a bicycle, the beautiful jumping.’ “The way I had done against [Gianluigi] Buffon, against Juventus, in the Champions League. It was a beautiful goal.” Ronaldo may not have known it at the time, but just months after scoring that goal he would be joining Juventus following a legendary nine-year run at Real Madrid. The former Manchester United forward has said that the reception he received from Juve fans after scoring that goal helped to convince him to join the Serie A club. “When the people start to applaud me in the stadium I was like: ‘Wow,’” Ronaldo told DAZN last year. “[It] surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so [it] was [an] unbelievable moment.”Tags: Champions LeagueCristiano RonaldoDani CarvajalGeorgina RodriguezLiverpoolReal Madridlast_img read more

Allardyce sticking to his guns

first_img Allardyce is wary of just how dangerous Roberto Martinez’s compact side can be. “We have to be aware and stop the service they give to the forwards, then when you have possession you have to make sure you use it correctly and exploit the spaces they do leave,” he said. “A key part for us will be trying to make sure we limit Everton’s attacks by stopping those players like Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines, if he is fit, because they are very good at going forward with the ball.” The 6ft 3in forward offers a different focal point for the Hammers, but Allardyce insists that in itself will not necessarily mean switching to a more direct style. “We play slightly differently, in that we play more into Andy’s feet than we do into (Enner) Valencia or Sakho,” said the West Ham manager. “Valencia and Sakho are so pacy that we are a massive threat in behind the opposition when the midfield players like (Mark) Noble, (Alex) Song or (Stewart) Downing start sliding balls down the side of defenders, that has been a really big threat for us and on the back of that we have scored goals. “Whereas Andy is not such a big a threat in that area, he is a much bigger threat in terms of setting up attacks to get into the final third by playing into his feet or chest and not playing into his head. “No way do I tell a player to just knock it up to Andy’s head. I don’t want them to knock it up to Andy’s head, I want them to be talented enough to knock it into Andy’s feet or chest. “We want it on Andy’s head when it is getting crossed into the box because that is where he is at his best and where he can score a lot of goals, as Sakho has proved this season. “I think we have scored more headed goals than anybody else, even without Andy Carroll.” Everton have started to slowly build some momentum following an indifferent start to the campaign, and are unbeaten in six though all competitions since losing at Manchester United on October 5. Diafra Sakho, who had netted six goals to help West Ham climb to fourth in the Barclays Premier League, is a major doubt for Saturday’s trip to Merseyside after suffering a back problem while away on international duty with Senegal. Carroll looked lively when coming on as a late substitute in the goalless draw against Aston Villa, his first appearance since recovering from pre-season ankle surgery, and almost scored a winner with a late header. Sam Allardyce will tell his West Ham team to adapt but not abandon their dynamic attacking style should Andy Carroll once again lead the front line at Everton. Press Associationlast_img read more
