Cristiano Ronaldo is learning some moves. But not the moves you may think, we are talking about dancing, yes, dancing. Teammate James Rodriguez, the World Cup’s leading scorer — is teaching CR7 how to really celebrate scoring a goal.
From the looks of it, Ronaldo will be doing this often and getting better at it. If this weekend’s game against Athletic Bilbao — which Real Madrid won 5-0 — is any indication, we are going to be witnessing the Ronaldo/Rodriguez victory dance not in the distant future. James made his celebratory dance popular during the World Cup.
It was all Real in the La Liga match at the Bernabeu, with main stars Benzema — who scored a brace, Gareth Bale, who didn’t score, but set up two-goals and Cristiano Ronaldo with his 22nd-hat-trick for Los Blancos and his third one this season alone to add to his impressive pedigree.
But Ronaldo showed that he isn’t only an amazing football player with out of this world skills. He can also shake it to greatly improve his goal celebration style, which is getting a bit old. Watch the video shared on Vine today.

After a shaky start to the season, which landed Real several points behind the leader and arch rival Barcelona, the team seems to be getting in a groove in the latest matches, even though they have faced weaker opponents. However, they are now only four points behind Lionel Messi’s Barca and one point ahead of last season’s champions, Atletico Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s victory dance comes as the team is getting adjusted to its newest starters, James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, who joined the team after successful bids in the 2014 World Cup. Things finally seem to be falling into place ahead of the upcoming international break.
Real Madrid will face Liverpool and Barcelona next at the Santiago Bernabeu and Ronaldo couldn’t be fitter. After struggling through the World Cup with nagging injuries, there were questions as to the Portuguese striker’s fitness level, but with 13-goals this season already, those questions are being answered.
