Cristiano Ronaldo pulled off an outrageous ‘no-look skill which fans joked ‘ended Antonio Rudiger’s career’ on Saturday.
The Portuguese superstar pulled off the move during his country’s 4-2 Euro 2020 defeat to Germany but ex-Liverpool star Didi Hamann branded him a ‘fool’.
Ronaldo, 36, had already put Portugal 1-0 up in Munich after a mammoth sprint from his own half.
And his side looked on course to make it two wins from two after they opened their Group F campaign with a 3-0 win over Hungary.
The jubilant mood seemed to affect Ronaldo and prompt him into pulling off the flamboyant trick in the 22nd minute.
Ronnie was being marked by Rudiger when a ball was fired into him.
He controlled it at waist height and popped it over the Chelsea man’s head and mimed as if he was going to catch it.
Rudiger appeared to stop before Ronaldo turned his body to the left and used the outside of his right to knock the ball across to his team-mate leaving the German bamboozled.
But the party atmosphere didn’t last long for captain Cristiano.
Own-goals from Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro saw the Germans go in 2-1 up at half-time.
