Free-kick specialist? The numbers say otherwise!
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo continues to struggle from free-kicks, failing to score from his last 51 attempts with a dead-ball, a run lasting ten months.
According to ESPN, the Portuguese international looks to be losing his touch in that area, having previously been regarded as one of the finest free-kick takers in the world.
The 30-year-old has a superb scoring record in general, and has a fine collection of individidual efforts from long range in his collection, but many will be surprised by this latest figure.
It surely won’t be too long before Ronaldo scores a free-kick again, but maybe he’s been sussed out and needs to try a change of technique?
