Cristiano Ronaldo put pen to paper on an obscenely lucrative contract a week ago, and to celebrate, he scored an obscenely good goal in La Liga this weekend.

The Spaniard turned the ball past Getafe's goalkeeper with a spinning backheel for his second goal in Real Madrid's 4-1 victory at the Bernabeu on Sunday.

That made it five goals in the week for Ronaldo—he grabbed two on the night in Spain and added that to a midweek hat-trick against Galatasaray in Turkey in the Champions League.

And to cap it all, he eclipsed another Real Madrid legend in the scoring charts. Ronaldo (208 goals for Real) has now passed Hugo Sanchez (207), according to AS English
