Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo might be 35 years of age but the Portuguese is still going strong when it comes to scoring goals. He might have suffered his worst individual year of the last decade in 2019 but he has come back strongly with astonishing performances in 2020.
The Portugal captain has scored in all the matches he has played so far. In fact, the Portuguese has been on a roll ever since Lionel Messi won the Ballon d’Or in December last year.
The former Sporting star has played 8 matches in 2020 and has been able to score in all of them. He has 12 goals from those matches and has been in incredible form so far this season.

With his recent goal against Milan in the Copa Italia – which he scored in injury time to equalise for his side – he has taken his tally to 24 goals from 29 matches in all competitions.
However, Lionel Messi fans may not have been impressed with his recent feat. Indeed, if the responses on Twitter are anything to go by, they are undermining the Portuguese’s scoring touch due to the fact that his last-gasp goal against the Milan outfit came from a penalty.
As a result, the 'penaldo' brigade is out yet again and here are some of the most hilarious responses on Twitter after he scored against Milan…
