Ronaldo: I knew I’d score

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘knew he’d score’ when taking the penalty that won Real Madrid the Champions League.

Ronaldo netted the decisive spot kick after a 1-1 draw and told reporters after the match that he was sure he’d beat Jan Oblak.

“I feel joy. We share this Champions League with the fans. I haven’t seen my family but obviously this is for them, for the players, for everyone. Many thanks to the fans,” the Portuguese said, AS reports.

“I had a vision. I knew I was going to score the winning goal. I asked [Zinedine Zidane] to let me take the fifth penalty because I was going to score the winning goal.

“Zidane has done a phenomenal job. He deserves it, he has humility and I’m happy for him. Balon d’Or? Winning the Champions League was first and to be the top scorer. It’s the seventh year I’ve scored more than 50 goals, for the first time in history.”
