Who is CR7

Cristiano Ronaldo Net Worth 

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born on February 5th, 1985 on the Portuguese island of Madeira. His mother was a cook, and his father was a gardener and a part-time equipment manager for a local soccer team. Cristiano’s family was not affluent, and he shared a single room with all of his siblings. The name “Ronaldo” was added to Cristiano’s name by his father in honor of Ronald Reagan.

Cristiano displayed notable talent from a young age, and by the age of 12, he had a successful trial with Sporting Lisbon who signed him as a youth player. By age 14, he had quit school in order to focus entirely on soccer. This coincided with Ronaldo’s expulsion after throwing a chair at a teacher. It wasn’t all smooth sailing, however, as Cristiano would later discover he had a racing heart – a condition that required surgery. After receiving heart surgery to restabilize his heart rate, Ronaldo returned to training.

Style Of Play

Cristiano Ronaldo began his career as a winger, using his speed and trickery to beat players in one-on-one situations and deliver crosses into the box. From a young age, he was also known for his shooting ability, particularly when it came to long-range strikes and free kicks. Cristiano developed his own trademark technique for free kicks which involved striking through the center of the ball in order to create an unpredictable path of flight.

Later in his career, Cristiano played as a central, traditional striker. As his pace diminished with age, Ronaldo reinvented his style of play to be more of a “goal poacher, finishing clinically inside the box. His ability to score from crosses is especially notable – either by towering headers or spectacular bicycle kicks. In recent years, Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick abilities have suffered.
