People think Cristiano Ronaldo has created a 'revolutionary' piece of skill - the 'fake headed pass'

People think Cristiano Ronaldo has created a 'revolutionary' piece of skill - the fake 'headed pass'.

Ronaldo got fans online talking ahead of Portugal's World Cup clash against South Korea on Friday.

He went viral on social media after producing a stunning piece of skill in training.

A video shows the 37-year-old juggling the ball with his knee, before throwing a 'fake header' as he let it hit the opposite side of his head.

The Portugal captain smiled and joked as he pointed at a teammate, with fans in awe of his moment of magic.

The clip, accompanied with the caption: "Fake headed passes is actually revolutionary," sent social media wild.

One tweeted: "I watched this video every time it showed up on my TL. Not once did I notice that the header was fake."

A second wrote: "Don't think I've ever seen a fake headed pass...nice."

A third added: "This is a player capable of inventing skills and y'all hate him? Damn."

Another commented: "This is so much difficult than it looks."

Replying to someone who down played Ronaldo's skill, a Twitter user said: "It can be useful just like a fake pass can. Where it’s better for the ball to go in any direction than the one u [sic] fake."

Ronaldo was unable to guide his team to victory against South Korea in their final group stage game.

Portugal took the lead through Ricardo Horta, but they surrendered their lead, eventually losing the game 2-1.

Kim Young-gwon leveled the Group H clash before Wolves star Hwang Hee-chan scored in stoppage time to secure a famous win and a spot in last 16.

Despite the defeat to South Korea, Ronaldo and Co top Group H ahead of resuming their Qatar venture in the knockout stage against Switzerland.

As for Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand spoke about his former teammate's future following the termination of his Manchester United contract.

On BBC, he said: "He is super focused now and there is no debating [about his United future].

"In terms of speaking to him on the phone, he is very short and sharp and business-like. You can sense that there's a difference in his focus from outside the tournament.

"Ronaldo is a fabulous player and his passion for his country is phenomenal. He might have been one they could've rested [vs South Korea], at 37, but I'm sure he was in that changing room telling the manager to play him and not to rest him."

Ferdinand added: "I've tried to weasel it out of him [where Ronaldo will go next], but he won't tell me. He's said he's only thinking about the World Cup and he will think about the transfer after that."
