Two bad pictures of two great soccer players equals one great picture.

This still looks better than the actual statue of Christiano Ronaldo.

This one is just fantastic in every way.
Who knew something as simple as a ball to the face can be trending on Twitter. The good thing is Man U won the game, the bad news is most people don’t care, they just want memes to send to their friends.
