Scorer against Israel (4-0), Cristiano Ronaldo was also noted with a fairly disastrous free kick.
We know, if he is an exceptional goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo is far from the best free kicker on the planet. Its statistics in this exercise are also quite bad.
Wednesday night, “CR7” did not help its reputation by offering itself a disastrous free kick in a preparation match against Israel. At just over 25 meters, the Juventus striker wanted to take his chance, in force. But his shot, completely unscrewed, went straight to the stands.
Fortunately, Ronaldo made up for it in the second half by scoring his 104th selection goal during the quiet success of his team (4-0). The five-time Ballon d’Or and his team will be one of the opponents of the Blues at the next Euro.

😅 | RTP1 commentator after Ronaldo’s failed free kick: “That’s at least an advantage not having a home crowd. The ball didn’t hit anyone.”
