Cristiano Ronaldo accused of 'stealing' Alvaro Morata's goal for landmark 750th strike in Juventus win over Dynamo Kiev

CRISTIANO RONALDO was accused of stealing Alvaro Morata's already goal-bound strike by fans online during Juventus' 3-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev last night.

The Portuguese superstar netted his 750th career goal, when he gave his side a 2-0 lead on 57 minutes.

For a player that has an outstanding highlights reel of magnificent strikes, this was certainly on the easy side for CR7.

In fact, the ball would have gone in regardless of whether he decided to prod home.

Federico Chiesa's wicked centre from the right ricocheted between Morata and the helpless goalkeeper, touching the Spaniard last and heading towards the bottom corner.

This is where Ronaldo was lurking, however, ready to pounce.

And pounce he did, instinctively prodding home his landmark strike.

The 35-year-old then faced a few nervous moments, as VAR checked whether he was offside.

But he was spared any blushes as the goal was given by referee Stephanie Frappart.

Online, however, he was accused of stealing the goal.

A fan wrote: "Ronaldo stealing goals from morata, there’s levels to this…"

And another wrote, followed by a crying emoji: "Did Ronaldo just steal Morata’s goal".

One did come to his defence, however, writing: "how did Ronaldo steal that goal? Messi fans dey vex Ronaldo is doing what they want make Messi dey do".
