Cristiano Ronaldo's long time hopes were finally fulfilled when he scored that astonishing bicycle kick in the 64th minute of the quarter-final first leg in Turin versus Juventus on Tuesday.
He hadn't watched it and when I told him Ronaldo had scored twice, one of which is probably in the top ten Champions League goals ever, he replied "of course" without even a whiff of sarcasm or surprise.
We love great soccer plays. "I want to thank all the Juventus fans as they have done something fantastic that has never happened to me during my career".

The Fighting Irish scored just three points in the second quarter, which set an NCAA championship record low for a single quarter. The good news for the Irish is that there defense remained stout as Miss State managed just 13 points the entire period.
Speaking about receiving a standing ovation, he added: "It was one of the most poignant moments of the night".
Anything Ronaldo can do, "Zizou" can do better. "I didn't expect to score that goal, but let's speak about the game".
It could have been worse for Juventus as Ronaldo missed several chances to complete his hat trick, while Mateo Kovacic hit the bar late on. Then, to everyone's surprise, the greatest goalscorer in Champions League history rose out of nowhere to beat them both to the ball, and produce a finish of breathtaking audacity and ideal technique. However, when it comes to Goal of the Season, we may already have a victor. While one wrote, "When Zidane does this, you know you're good", another wrote, "How do I explain this to my unborn children?" Ramos also has three senior honours with his country - one FIFA World Cup and two European Championship titles.
Ronaldo had also scored the opening goal just three minutes into the game, and he later set up the third for Marcelo as Madrid took a commanding lead back home for the second leg. Manouevring his body at will, he launched himself high into the rainy Turin sky to connect with an unforgettable overhead kick that reduced goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to the role of spectator.

Giannandrea will focus on AI technology that supports Siri , while Federighi will likely still oversee the user-facing components. He originally joined the company after Google bought startup Metaweb , where he acted as Chief Technolgy Officer, in 2010.
The calibre of the finish left Los Blacos coach Zinedine Zidane shaking his head in disbelief, while the Juve fans applauded in stunned admiration.
While it is debatable if Cristiano Ronaldo is a better footballer than Lionel Messi, it is hardly an argument when it comes to goal-scoring. What they did for me was incredible.
"Cristiano Ronaldo can now leave the Earth and start playing against the Martians, he has done everything here!" tweeted Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa.
BBC World Service's John Bennett said: "I don't think he has scored a better goal than that".
