Cristiano Ronaldo ended a two-year wait to score a free-kick in club football as he found the back of the net from a direct free-kick for the first time after 42 failed attempts.

The Portuguese who has had a stellar record of scoring free-kicks in his career hadn’t registered one for Juventus since his move to the Turin-based club in 2019.

However, he ended the long wait on Saturday as he netted one against Torino in Juventus’ 4-1 victory.

Twitter welcomed the goal for Juventus by, once again, comparing his record with that of Lionel Messi.
