This day in history of Ronaldo
People call them the STAR TEAM...there will be a reason for it! Real’s power is so great that also when they do not have their best performance they are able to score seven goals against a Primera División team. Rául, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo… scored in all possible ways and for any taste. Santiago Bernabeu could enjoy the terrific plays of their champions, that after the goal feast against Real Valladolid rose to 7 points after League’s first three round-ups. And among these stars, as usual, there's an extraordinary Ronaldo, that started this season in a big way. He did not suffered from his travel to Colombia and Brazil (where he scored too). Back to Spain, the day after he scores again.
A goal…and a half
After just four minutes, Ronaldo got very close to scoring, being in the box alone, but his shot was bravely saved by goalkeeper Bizzarri. In the 20th minute he received an assist, and unleashed with his right foot a shot which passed goalkeeper Bizzarri, after hitting the head of his fellow countryman Julio Cèsar. In the 42nd minute R9 speeded up in one of his model play, but his tight- footed shot was saved by Bizzarri. In the 20th of the second half, Ronnie gets the ball at the box edge, masterfully dribbled his defender and shot but again Bizzarri blocked the shot. But five minutes after the deserved goal for the Brazilian arrived. Great, deep pass from Beckam to Ronaldo, who swerved Caminero and passed Bizzarri with a cross shot.
Ronaldo scored his fourth goal in 4 match against Real Valladolid. Also, he has already scored three official goals with Real Madrid CF since the beginning of the season, and also one with the Brazilian Seleçao against Colombia. But let’s come to the details of the extraordinary goal against Pucela’s team. Ronaldo suggested a deep pass, which David Becham read, understood and served. The Brazilian striker stopped the ball with his right foot, passed it precisely on his left foot with the heel, which caused his defender Jose Luis Caminero loose his position. Finally he unleashed a cross shot that passed goalkeeper Bizzarri. A copybook goal!
In the match against Real Valladolid, everybody played at top level. Rául González showed he does not suffer from any scoring crisis, making five in just three days (he had already scored a double against Ukraine). Ronaldo scored his sixth goal of the season but he also unleashed the shoot that was deviated into his own net by Julio Cèsar. Luis Figo scored on penalty, while Zinedine Zidane scored a magnificent goal, with a volleying a long cross by David Beckham. David had a very complete performance, making the assist for Ronnie’s goal. Now, after three round-ups, Real Madrid CF totalled 7 points, making 10 goals and 4 against. Next Tuesday they will have their debut in the UEFA Champions League against Olympique Marseille.
