In a video shared on their social media, the Premier League decided to remember one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s greatest goals. 

Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United, the Premier League has been missing the star without any signs of remorse. They obviously would like him to return to English football during the final good years of his professional career. Out of all the amazing moments he delivered as a Red Devil, the period between 2007 and 2009 was the greatest at Man United. Many great goals can be counted from Ronaldo but he was at the top of his free-kick game throughout that period.

We don’t know what happened to him in recent times but back then, there was no stopping his set-pieces. In fact, the Premier League recalls one of his best goals at every chance they get. Some even dared to call this the greatest free-kick in the tournament’s history. They decided to upload a video from every possible angle that reminds us he might’ve even scored the greatest free-kick in football history, period. If you don’t believe us, allow us to set up the historic moment in order to paint a better picture. 

Ronaldo vs ‘Calamity’ James. 

This goal came during the most prolific season in Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United career. Back when he won the 2007-08 Champions League. Old Trafford was packed to take a look at the best player in the world during that era. This was before Leo Messi started playing at a similar level, when Ronaldo reigned supreme in world football. Every single time there was a foul committed outside the box, all defenders trembled. They were well aware of Ronaldo’s impressive striking skills.

During this era, it was widely reported that Cristiano always stayed after every training session to practice his free-kicks. David James was allegedly also at the top of his game but he got first row tickets to this amazing goal. At first glance, you can’t see how Ronaldo struck the ball but this all-angle video gives you a better idea of how impressive it truly was. We urge Cristiano to stay after practice at Juventus so he can bring these beauties back from the dead. Enjoy!
