Cristiano Ronaldo breaks deadlock against Roma with gorgeous strike

It's also Ronaldo's first goal away from home since November.

The press has been making a lot of fuss lately about Cristiano Ronaldo having failed to score for Real Madrid away from the Santiago Bernabeu since November. Ronaldo was apparently sick of listening to them, because he scored this wonderful strike against AS Roma in Champions League action at the Stadio Olimpico in Italy.

Oh yeah, and that goal was also Madrid's second shot on target and broke a 0-0 deadlock almost an hour into the match. And Ronaldo's move to get behind Alessandro Florenzi and pull the defender out of position will probably haunt the young Italian for years to come.
