Karate kick back-heel completes Ronaldo’s 14-minute hat trick

We've known that Cristiano Ronaldo is a prolific scorer, but now we see just how efficient he can be with his 14-minute hat trick in the first half of Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Malaga on Saturday. Gonzalo Higuain started the scoring with his goal in the 11th minute, then Ronaldo took over, scoring three times between the 23rd and 38th minutes. And he finished his assault on Malaga when Sergio Ramos headed Angel Di Maria's corner kick right in front of goal for Ronaldo to volley in with a high karate kick back-heel.

Real Madrid have now scored 25 goals in their last six matches (with three or more goals in each match). Seven have come from Ronaldo and eight from Higuain.

As nice as that was, it still wasn't his greatest moment of the day (or quarter hour). That honor goes to his Rico Suave style dance routine with Marcelo. Have a look...


If they just get Kaka and Higuain involved, they'll have a full boy band going on here.
