Here's Ronaldo's brilliant back-heel finish you may have missed
The Portuguse scored twice in Madrid’s 4 – 1 win over Getafe.

WHILE YOU ALL were celebrating / wallowing in self-pity after Dublin’s All-Ireland win yesterday evening, Cristiano Ronaldo was helping Real Madrid come back from a goal down to beat Getafe 4 – 1.

Ronaldo’s close range shot was saved to set up a tap-in for Pepe’s equaliser and the number seven then slotted home a penalty to make the score 2-1 after 34 minutes.

Isco added an insurance goal on the hour mark, but the pick of the litter on the night was this brilliant back-heeled finish in stoppage time.

It’s a different kind of back-heel to this one against Aston Villa in 2008, but it still shows off some incredible reflexes.
