Ronaldo: Stop Whistling At Me!

The reason for the confusion goes back to Jose Mourinho's spell in charge when Madrid beat Real Sociedad 2-1 on September 18, 2010, at the Anoeta stadium in San Sebastian.

The Manchester United legend scored a brilliant hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final win over city rivals Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

Whatever the tally from his 389 games, Ronaldo insisted the semi-final tie was far from over ahead of next Wednesday's second leg.

"More than ever I am calm", said Simeone.

"You also need a bit of luck, because I have been preparing but things are going well - not only for me, but also for the team".

As well as a positional switch, Ronaldo has had to deal this season with being rotated by French coach Zinedine Zidane, who has dropped the Portuguese for some of the team's away trips to keep him fresh for the big occasions.

Florentino Pérez presented @Cristiano with a shirt for his 400 goals with #RealMadrid ! "I don't know whether it's all down to him being rested". All the three goals are done by the world's greatest soccer Cristiano Ronaldo.

The visitors' best chance came during the high on adrenaline first-half, when Gameiro broke through after seventeen minutes but the attempt was foiled by Navas as he tried to round the Madrid goalkeeper.

"The team did a tremendous job". It has conceded at least two goals in four of its last five games.

"We need to forget about this game". Raul Gonzalez, Madrid's second-best scorer, had 323 goals in 741games.

"On Tuesday we saw a phenomenal performance from Ronaldo", he said. It is a huge amount of goals and I never expected it.

"I liked the way the team played in the first half, but later they knew how to attack the spaces well".

Lionel Messi is officially on 502 goals in all competitions for Barcelona. He finished with more than 50 in each of the last six seasons with Madrid.

The Portugal captain hopes to deliver many more trophies during his remaining years at Santiago Bernabeu, beginning with a successful defence of the Champions League this season.

The striker headed home a Dani Carvajal cross, although replays showed he had been clearly offside in the buildup to the goal.

The 32-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, said: "It is always an extra motivation to play for this shirt".
