We witnessed a quite incredible match in Italy last night as AC Milan beat Juventus 4-2. It was 0-0 at half-time before Juve surged into a two-goal lead as they close in on a Serie A title.
First, Adrien Rabiot scored an amazing individual goal to put his side 1-0 up.
Five minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo notched his 30th goal of the season and looked to have secured all three points.
It all started in the 62nd-minute when AC Milan was awarded a penalty.
The legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic stepped up and appeared calm and collected.
But behind him, Ronaldo decided to have a bit of fun.
He shouted to his goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny in an attempt to put Zlatan off.
“Tek, you know him [Ibrahimovic],” Ronaldo said, It didn’t put Ibrahimovic off as he sent Szczesny the wrong way.
He then proceeded to laugh in the direction of Ronaldo, who also found the funny side of it.
A brilliant moment between two legendary footballers still enjoying their career despite being well into their thirties.
At the time, Ronaldo probably didn’t predict what was about to happen.
Four minutes later, it was 2-2 as Franck Kessie equalised for the home side.
It was 3-2 within seconds as Rafael Leao completed a sensational five-minute turnaround.
Ante Rebic added a fourth to secure a memorable victory with 10 minutes remaining.
After the game, Zlatan was in typical Zlatan form as he claimed AC Milan would have won the title if he’d been at the club since the start of the season
“If I was here from the beginning of the season, we would have won the Scudetto,” he said. “I am president, coach, and player, but they only pay me as a footballer.”
But what we witnessed between Ronaldo and Zlatan was a beautiful moment for football fans. If supporters were allowed inside the San Siro, we probably would never have heard Ronaldo’s taunts.
But he was naive to think he could unsettle Zlatan – perhaps the coolest footballer in the world.
It was all a bit of fun and games at the time but nobody could have predicted that moment was the catalyst for a sensational comeback for Milan.
