Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both found the net in Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid’s Champions League tie. The 2-2 draw was one of the game’s of the week, in the second groupstage match.
Even though the Los Blancos star may have been disappointed with the result, the Portuguese captain perfectly demonstrated how you can be rivals on the pitch, but friends off of it.
Aubameyang’sson is a huge fan of the Spanish giants, as the little lad has a massive soft spot for Cristiano Ronaldo, but then again, who doesn’t? This led CR7 to show what a top bloke he is, once again, as the Portuguese captain sent his Champions League match-day shirt to the Dortmund star’s son.
The sending of the shirt is just another example of CR7’s great character. More evidence that the forward is one of the best ambassadors for the beautiful game, and here’s 12 other reasons why…
