Cristiano Ronaldo Bizarrely Ducks And Covers Face In Wall To Let In Free-Kick Vs Parma

Cristiano Ronaldo was at fault for Juventus conceding from a free-kick after he bizarrely bowed his head and covered his face, allowing the ball to sail over him.

Parma took the lead against Juventus when Gaston Brugman struck a free-kick. Three of the four players in the Juve wall jumped to stopped it - except Ronaldo.

Instead, the 36-year-old wrapped his arms around his handsome face and stayed stationary. Naturally, the ball flew over his lowered head and into the back of the net.

The wall appears to be the one thing Ronaldo has not mastered, as he was also held accountable for Porto's free-kick in the Champions League which was crucial in Juve's last-16 exit in this season's competition.

Juventus at least fought back after the free-kick humiliation to lead Parma 3-1 at the Allianz Stadium.

A pair of Alex Sandro goals put the Serie A side - currently third and battling for a Champions League qualification place - into the lead. Matthijs de Ligt then added a third goal after 68 minutes.

However Ronaldo's strange actions in the wall - seemingly making no attempt to actually block the ball (which is sort of the point of a wall) - has naturally led to criticism from football fans.
