On a night Cristiano Ronaldo volleyed in one of the great goals of his career his former Manchester United teammate was well placed to judge the overhead kick at Juventus. All the football world was talking about on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning was Ronaldo's audaciously acrobatic finish in Real Madrid's 3-0 Champions League victory in Turin. His strike has entered the pantheon of overhead kicks and his own personal catalogue of great goals.

Mark Duffy is a footballer of many talents but the art of scoring goals is proving difficult for him to master. Despite, as Reading discovered on Tuesday evening, his magical right boot.Alan Knill, Sheffield United’s assistant manager, agreed the 32-year-old should find the back of the net more after watching him nearly burst it at the Madejski Stadium. However, as Bramall Lane’s coaching staff search for ways to improve an already accomplished player, they are being careful not to weaken other areas of his game.“It’s not for the lack of trying,” Knill says. “He does get into the right areas and we know, for Duff to get even better, he’s got to get more goals.
