It must be scary if you’re a ‘keeper and you see Cristiano Ronaldo ready to fire off a shot. Let’s face it: you don’t want the ball to take off your head as it hits the back of the net.
It’s not a complete exaggeration either. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner might have failed to open his scoring account with Juventus this season, but something says it is not that long before his shooting boots start working overtime.
During a warm-up session, Ronaldo is passed the ball, takes one touch to control it and fires an absolute rocket from outside of the box. The shot is absolutely amazing, with the ‘keeper rooted to the spot as it hits the woodwork.

In fact, the shot is that powerful that it bounces all the way back over Ronaldo and his teammates.
Don’t take our word for it. Check it out below:
The Portuguese forward hasn’t had the best of starts to life with Juventus. He’s failed to score in the team’s first three matches in Serie A, but seeing him hit the woodwork will be reassuring for Juve fans.
The Italian champions are already looking at ways to help him find his form, to be fair.
Form is temporary, folks, class is permanent.
