Ramsey Says Sorry to CR7 for Stealing Goal

Aaron Ramsey admits to having apologised to Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo for stealing a goal and another piece of history off the Portuguese during a Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Wales international midfielder was credited with opening the scoring during a continental fixture in the Russian capital on Wednesday .

He pounced on a loose ball and prodded over the line after Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme had spilled a free-kick from Ronaldo.

The ball was heading in anyway, which would have seen a five-time Ballon d’Or winner become the first man to net against 34 different teams in Europe’s premier club competition, but Ramsey opted to make sure.

The ex-Arsenal star told reporters after a 2-1 win for Juve: “I thought the keeper was a lot closer to me and had a chance of diving back and maybe clearing it.

“My instinct took over to make sure that it went over the line.

“I’ve apologised to Cristiano.”
