Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Siuuuuuu' Celebration Without Fans Is So Loud
We found out just how loud Cristiano Ronaldo's "Siuuuuuu!" celebration is last night when the five-time Ballon d'Or did his trademark call after scoring his 100th international goal.
Having just recovered from a toe infection that sidelined him against Croatia, Portugal skipper Ronaldo reached the incredible milestone by scoring a superb free-kick on the stroke of half-time in the 2-0 UEFA Nations League game win over Sweden.
He wheeled away in euphoria and celebrated the iconic landmark goal in typical fashion. But with the game being played behind-closed-doors, fans watching at home could hear just how deafening his go-to cry was.
Still, nothing compares to a full, raucous stadium shouting "SIUUUUU" at the very same time as Ronaldo. When you watch fan footage of the celebration, you can't help but get goosebumps.
I love how the Juventus fans cheer "SIII" when Ronaldo celebrates unlike how the Real Madrid fans used to boo him.- Aidan Walsh :beginner: (@AidanWalshMUFC) November 24, 2018

Ronaldo, who would then move onto 101 goals for country with another stunning strike in the second half, has some strong opinions on no supporters being allowed in stadiums due to coronavirus.
He feeds off their reactions, whether good and bad, and has come up with quite the analogy for how it feels playing without them.
"There is no need to regret, when I do something I like to be whistled because it gives me chills. But health comes first, if the WHO says that these aren't safe conditions, that's it. The most important thing is the human being," Ronaldo told RTP after his two-goal performance.
"Playing without fans is like going to the circus and not seeing clowns, it's like going to the garden and not seeing flowers."
The 35-year-old has been celebrating hundreds of goals in that manner since his days at Real Madrid, even doing it at the 2015 ceremony when he won the Ballon d'Or.
"The scream? The players know I always do that shout when I score a goal or when we win," he told Cuatro, explaining where the celebration came from.
"It's our team shout, from Real Madrid."
