Cristiano Ronaldo has once again proven he's a freak of nature by starting and finishing a counter attack during Portugal vs Germany.
Toni Kroos whipped in a corner for the away side which was then met by a leaping Ronaldo, who cleared to Bernardo Silva.
The Juventus forward them steamed forward and arrived in the German half, peeling away from Kai Havertz.
Silva found Diogo Jota on the left, who then cut it back for Ronaldo to tap home.
17 seconds after #GER have a corner at one end, @Cristiano taps home at the other :open_mouth:

All in all, it was 17 seconds between Ronaldo clearing the ball and giving Portugal the lead.
He is 36-years-old. That just isn't normal, flat out.
It's Ronaldo's third goal of the competition after netting a brace in 3-0 victory over Hungary on Tuesday.
Fans have reacted to Ronaldo's freakish pace and they all think it's defying the laws of nature.
Cristiano Ronaldo is toying with Germany. He's bullying them.

I shall never, ever tire of talking or writing about Ronaldo. What he is doing at his age is ludicrous

Cristiano Ronaldo at the age of 36 has scored 44 goals for club and country this season. It's simply just ridiculous.

Germany thought they'd taken the lead early on thanks to Robin Gosens acrobatic effort.
However, Serge Gnabry was in an offside position and attempted to play the ball before it met Gosens.
It saw VAR intervene and rule the goal out.

Havertz made up for his earlier error by pressuring Ruben Dias, who put a Gosens cross into his own net to give Germany an equaliser.
Germany then took the lead thanks to a Raphael Guerreiro own goal.
Today's other Group F game saw Hungary hold France to a 1-1 draw in Budapest.
Attila Fiola gave Hungary a shock lead just before half-time, but Antoine Griezmann levelled in the 66th minute.
Who do you think will qualify from Group F?
