A lot of fans and pundits rate Cristiano Ronaldo among the greatest footballers of all time. The Portuguese forward has scored 725 goals and delivered over 221 assists in his glittering football career. The man who possesses a lethal right foot is also a magical game maker in world football.
Although 467 of his goals came from his right foot, we can’t deny the fact that he has scored some quality goals with his left foot.
Here is a short clip of CR&’s left foot’s brilliance and also a compilation of the goals that he has scored using his weaker foot.
Cristiano Rolando’s best left foot goals
The goal vs Sevilla on 00.26 seconds of the clip attests to his left foot shooting ability which is otherwise a underlying talent. The hit was so clean that no Madrid fan would ever forget that goal. Not to forget Sevilla was his favourite opponent among Spanish clubs. He has scored 27 goals in 18 games against them.
The goal against Galatasaray is another remarkable left foot finish by Cristiano where he took on three players and successfully glided the ball into the box on his own and slotted home from a very tight angle.
The goal versus Barcelona shouldn’t go unnoticed. A calm and composed finish with his weaker foot against Barcelona was a result of some adept teamwork as Marcelo and Benzema played an industrial role in teeing up the finish.
Well, it’s a no-brainer that Lionel Messi has a better-left foot than Cristiano Ronaldo as Messi has scored 582 goals from his left foot. Messi has been loyal to Barcelona since age 13. The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has a special place in the heart of all the football fans around the world. He has scored 26 goals and has 19 assists in 35 games.
Ronaldo and Messi both are equally good and fans must cherish them till they last.
