Ronaldo headed two goals in seven minutes in the first half as
Corinthians beat Sport 4-3 to improve to sixth in the Brazilian
championship on Thursday.
"I don't remember having done that before. Some incredible things are
happening," Ronaldo told reporters.
Ronaldo, who equalised in the 28th minute following Fabiano's opener for
Sport and put Corinthians ahead in the 35th, took his tally to 16 goals
in 24 matches since coming back in March after knee surgery as an AC
Milan player last year.
Midfielder Cristian hit Corinthians' third early in the second half but
Sport's Vandinho struck twice in five minutes to level before substitute
Moradei drove home the winner from outside the box 10 minutes from time.
Atletico Mineiro added to Sao Paulo's woes by beating them 2-0 at home
to go a point above Internacional, 4-2 winners at home to Fluminense on
Wednesday, at the top of the standings with 24 points from 11 matches.
Title holders Sao Paulo, champions from 2006 to 2008, are 15th after
only two wins.
"We've reached the limit, it can't get worse than this. We have to react
because things are bad ... It's embarrassing for Sao Paulo," said Brazil
midfielder Hernanes, the team's ex-captain now confined to the bench.
