    Its good

    Ronaldo is good player whos amazing at dangling and scores great goals but he flops way to much and played a huge role in rooneys red card in the 2006 world cup quarter finals where one rooney was the victim getting pushed around and ACCIDENTLY stepped on his balls watch the replays his back was turned and he said himself if he did it on purpose he would still be in the hospital
