Ronaldo rolled back the years during Portugal's Euro 2024 clash with Turkey The 39-year-old got past Abduelkerim Bardakci with step overs before crossingLISTEN to It's All Kicking Off! 'The Luke Shaw call by Gareth Southgate has been an absolute stinker! It was another mistake and left England so lopsided

Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo rolled back the years after easing past a defender with his iconic step overs.

The 39-year-old first made a name for himself by producing silky skills but has unsurprisingly slowed down in recent years.

However, he was back at it once again against Turkey as he dropped defender Abduelkerim Bardakci to the ground with step overs before delivering a cross to Rafael Leao.

And fans took to social media to wax lyrical about Ronaldo after some claimed he can no longer produce skills as he did in his younger days.

One said: 'LMAO 2008 RONALDO JUST CAME BACK FOR A SECOND. HE SAT THAT TURKISH DEFENDER DOWN LMAOO'.

Another wrote: You people said Ronaldo’s step overs were no longer effective, he just sent that Turkish defender back to Istanbul'.

A third fan posted: 'That Turkish defender should be forced to retire on the spot for being beaten on the outside by Cristiano Ronaldo in the year of our lord 2024'.

'A defender still falling for Ronaldo's step over in 2024', another fan said on X.

Portugal took the lead thanks to Bernardo Silva's first ever goal in a major international tournament after 21 minutes.

Roberto Martinez's men doubled their lead in bizarre circumstances when Turkish defender Samet Akaydin found the back of his own net seven minutes later.

Another mix-up in the Turkey defence saw Ronaldo go through on goal before unsleflinshly laying the ball to Bruno Fernandes, who guided it into an empty net

If Portugal maintain their lead, they will secure their place in the last-16 of Euro 2024.
