Cristiano Ronaldo had a remarkable bicycle kick goal wrongly disallowed that would have gone down as one of his best efforts in his career.
Ronaldo produced a moment of magic for Portugal against Azerbaijan in a UEFA Euro qualification match back in 2006.
A lovely team move saw Miguel whip a ball into the box that Deco controlled impeccably.
The Brazilian-born maestro performed a delicate pass with his shoulder, with Ronaldo poking the ball into the air before acrobatically striking it in mid-air.
The Portuguese forward made a sweet connection with the ball which hit the underside of the crossbar, then bounced over the goal-line before bouncing back out.
Ronaldo pleaded with the match officials but to no avail – with the goal unfortunately ruled out.
What a goal it would have been. You’re looking at one of his greatest goals had it stood.
Ronaldo’s disallowed effort got fans reminiscing.
One tweeted: “One of the cleanest bicycles.”
A second wrote: “This was actually one of the best goals in the history of football, shame it was disallowed!”

A third added: “EVERYTHING was perfect about that play except the call by the referee.”
Ronaldo being Ronaldo, still scored two goals against Azerbaijan in a 3-0 win.
