In the 2004/05 season, the forward netted a brace in the win at Anoeta.Taking centre stage in this week’s instalment of Historic Goals is Ronaldo Nazário. The Brazilian checked in at Real Madrid in 2002 from Inter Milan with the reputation as being one of the best strikers in world football. During the course of his career, he twice landed the Ballon d’Or and is remembered for his strength and goalscoring exploits.
In the 2004/05 campaign, Real Madrid visited Anoeta on LaLiga match day 34. With the clock ticking around to the final ten minutes and the scores level, the Brazilian ace stepped up to net a quick-fire double to clinch victory for Real Madrid. The goal on this week’s show is his first of the two. Guti slipped a pass in behind the defence and Ronaldo skipped around the goalkeeper to slot into an empty net.
Ronaldo spent five seasons at Real Madrid, during which time he scored 104 times in 177 competitive outings. He lifted four pieces of silverware with the Whites: two league titles and one Intercontinental Cup and Spanish Super Cup apiece.
