Buffon reveals what Ronaldo told him after his bicycle kick

Gianluigi Buffon revealed the brief chat he had with Cristiano Ronaldo following the Portuguese's stunning bicycle kick against Juventus in 2018.

Portugal faced Sweden in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers playoff after finishing second in the Group F, one point behind Russia.

They traveled to Stockholm with a 1-0 lead from the first leg, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s strike at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.

The Portuguese captain didn’t stop there though, as he bagged a hat-trick, producing one of his best-ever performances for the national team. It was Portugal 4-2 Sweden on aggregate at the end, with Cristiano Ronaldo beating the Swedes basically alone in the playoffs.
