Cristiano Ronaldo scored the decisive goal in our Champions League quarter-final tonight and it also happened to be a bloody screamer.
Ronaldo is hoping this result will start us off on a run of good form and can’t wait to face Arsenal in the semis.
“This will give us confidence,” said Ronaldo. “The last five games we didn’t play great and I hope this will change that. When Anderson gave me the ball I think straight away to turn and shoot in the goal and I score a fantastic goal. It is the best I have scored. It was a fantastic strike and I can’t wait to see it again on DVD. I am very happy with it.”
Ronaldo is already looking forward to facing Arsenal in the semi-final, who beat Villarreal at home today.
“It’s a fantastic thing,” he added. “Arsenal play fantastic football. It will be a tight game. We know each other and I hope to win the tie and go to the final.”
