Reviews for his partner
Ronaldo, if played right, he is an outstanding player. Although Ronaldo's career with many ups and downs due to injury and the reasons off the pitch, I was impressed by what he's done. Now it's hard to guess whether he can get back to the highest level or not, but my own is always believed that Ronaldo will do. At first glance, his personal technical nothing special but so Ronaldo can do everything he wants with the ball. It is a natural talent that not everyone is lucky enough to have. In addition, Ronaldo is a great scorer, football today is difficult to find a player like him
I try Ronaldo analysis to find ways to learn from him. He has one super-speed, explosive strength to abandon all defenders easily, which is what impressed my place. In addition to technical factors, the results simply are not on par with Ronaldo.
