Cristiano Ronaldo’s textbook header puts Real Madrid in front of Valencia

Perfection.

Cristiano Ronaldo has given Real Madrid a first half lead against Valencia with a perfect header off a cross from Dani Carvajal. His 20th La Liga goal of the season was one you’d see from a prototypical No. 9 striker, running in front of a marker, skying high and heading down past a goalkeeper. While Ronaldo can wear many hats, he’s typically known as a winger. However, with goals like this, he proves he can play the role of a true striker if needed.
