Cristiano Ronaldo checked the match official’s watch to be sure that his goal was not mistakenly denied in a hilarious moment against Roma. In the run-in, the referee said no, but Ronaldo wanted to be sure anyway.
Earlier before the moment, Ronaldo had already smashed home a wonderful left-footed goal from outside the box to give Juventus an early lead against Roma. However, for a man like Cristiano, who has had over 760 career goals, one goal isn’t always enough. And that insatiable hunger to find the back of the net was yet again on display during the Juventus Vs Roma clash on Saturday.
After Ronaldo had got his first goal, he further smashed another effort on the crossbar prompting him to ask the referee, Daniele Orsato, to check if the ball hadn’t crossed the goal line as it bounced down.
Daniele Orsato responded with no and pointed out the watch on his wrist, which is linked to the goal-line technology, hadn’t given any goal alert. But it was Ronaldo, who made the moment hilarious by cheekily took it as an opportunity to make sure he hadn’t been denied a second goal.
Ronaldo almost grabbed the match official’s watch to be sure. Meanwhile, if there was ever a video that summed up CR7, this one would surely be a contender.
Moreover, had it been the goal crossed the line, it would have been another brilliant finish from the 36-year-old Juventus hitman!
