Nigerians react to Ronaldo iconic display against Atletico

Champions League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 13/03/2019

Nigerian react after Cristiano Ronaldo produces another iconic display for Juventus Champions League against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night at Allianz Stadium.

The 33-year-old Portugal international signed from Real Madrid for £88.3m (€100m) last summer and aiming to lift the European Cup for the fourth season in succession, inspired the fightback with two towering headers and a late penalty which sealed a 3-2 win after they lost the first leg 2-0 in the Spanish capital.

Ronaldo's match-winning display hasn't gone unnoticed by Nigerians, who took to their respective Twitter handles to shower praise five-time  Ballon d'Or winner who has scored more goals in the Champions League knock out stage than anybody in the history of the game.
