Ronaldo has smashed Real's club records since joining from Manchester United in 2009 and is way out in front as Madrid's all-time top scorer with 434 goals in 414 appearances.

The Al Jazira captain made an incredible stop to turn a deflected Ronaldo header onto the bar then got down well to parry efforts from Luka Modric and Karim Benzema.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored with a free kick which went through the defensive wall to break Gremio's courageous resistance and give Real Madrid a 1-0 in the Club World Cup final on Saturday. Real went behind at the first time but later the team of Zidane won the game by 2 - 1 goals.

This afternoon, they face the Brazilian side, Gremio, in the final.
