You have to watch Cristiano Ronaldo’s amazing, hat-trick completing free kick

All because of his magic thighs.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s thighs came out and Spain’s lead went into hiding. A free kick in the 87th minute tied their World Cup group stage game, earning Portugal a 3-3 draw against Spain, and it was mesmerizing.

I have no idea how this man’s oversized leg boulders whaled the crap out of ball hard enough and with so much finesse that it’d curve around a miserable-looking wall of defenders who knew what was coming next. But he did it.

I know Ronaldo is great and all, but I think we know who really deserves credit.

That’s right, his exposed, bronze thighs that made this all possible.
