The Whole Stadium Shouts "SIIIII" When Ronaldo Celebrates
The entire King Abdullah Sports City stadium erupted when Cristiano Ronaldo scored against AC Milan in the Italian Super Cup.
Just after the hour mark, Cristiano Ronaldo headed Juventus in front and he wheeled away in trademark celebratory fashion.
He performed his signature ‘Siii’ celebration but it was made extra special by the sold-out Jeddah crowd, who simultaneously screamed along with the Portuguese superstar.
Class. What a moment. This will no doubt give Juventus and Ronaldo fans goosebumps.
Here’s the same sequence from another angle.
In fact, it’s not the first time supporters have joined in on his celebration.
The Juventus stadium hollered ‘Siii’ when he scored a Serie A goal earlier in the season in another great moment.
Anyway, Ronaldo’s goal in the 61st minute proved to be the match-winner, sealing the Italian Super Cup for a record eighth time and his first piece of silverware at the club since his mega-transfer in the summer.
He’s now got an impressive 16 goals across all competitions to his name.
Ronaldo’s delighted to have secured his first title and is eager to collect more.
“It was a very difficult match, it’s very warm and hard to play in these conditions,” he said.
“It was my intention to start 2019 with a trophy, I have my first title with Juve and I am very happy.
“It is only the start, we take it one step at a time. We’ve got this cup, now we must keep working hard to achieve the next trophy.
“Serie A is always Juve’s principal objective, we are top of the table, but it’s a very long competition and it’s going to be tough, so we need to keep working.”
