FIFA 18: How to pull off Ronaldo’s incredible overhead kick on the game

It's surprisingly easy - and looks just as good as you'd hope

Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of his most memorable goals this week – a stunning overhead kick that left Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon no chance.

Real Madrid walked away the 3-0 winners, making it a tough job for Italians to pull it back in the second leg.

But while Ronaldo’s goal takes a lot of skill, luck and timing to pull of in real life, when it comes to FIFA, it’s far more simple.

Just wow

Here’s how to do it.

If you’re a PS4 player, simply press L2 and O when a cross comes in to perform the move. On Xbox, it’s LT and B.

Don’t go too mad with the angle, just let the ball do the work. Get the timing just right and you’ll see the ball fly into the goal.

It’s as simple as one button press
