The Portuguese himself suggested the overhead kick that saw him hit the ball at an incredible height of 2.38m was “the best goal of his career” and it earned him a standing ovation by the home crowd.

However, Ronaldo wasn’t the first and will surely not be the last to score an outstanding goal like this. In fact, legendary Brazilian striker Pele was the first documented player to execute a bicyle kick. Back in 1968, the Selecao superstar received a cross from the left wing but instead of facing the goal, he had his back towards it and jumped up to score with a bicycle kick that left the footballing world stunned.

Many years later, Wayne Rooney scored a stunning overhead kick in the Manchester derby in 2011, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic went into the history books for his incredible bicycle kick from around 35 yards out against England.

Former FC Barcelona wizards Ronaldinho and Rivaldo both scored stunning overhead kicks during their time at the Camp Nou, while former Baroka FC goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke was nominated for the FIFA Puskas award for his last minute equalizer against Orlando Pirates in 2016.
