CR7 is back again after ending is goal drought yesterday , when he scored one of the best goals against a defensive schalke team on tuesday.

The Ballon d or winner has been under unfamiliar negative spotlight in recent weeks, having missed two Blancos matches with a petulant Liga suspension and having not scored since January 18.

Ronaldo silenced his doubters on tuesday with a goal and saw him go level with Lionel Messi and Raul as the top scorer in European competitions, with 76 goals across continental tournaments.

The coach said “I’m happy,” it’s never easy coming into such a game after our period in La Liga. But the players showed good attitude and put in a good performance. It went well.

“The game did not allow brilliance, with Schalke trying to hit us on the counter attack. After we went 1-0 up we controlled the game. We tried to score the second and thankfully we did.”
Ancelotti usually refrains from being animated on the touchline but Marcelo’s sumptuous strike late in the second half to seal the victory
for the visitors had him celebrating with his players and he explained his reaction was due to the oddity of his left-back’s goal.

“I went to celebrate the goal on the pitch because it is so unusual to see Marcelo scoring with his right foot,” the Italian added.

Football is passion and with consistent hard work ronaldo will get back to his best.
