Real Madrid Video: Watch Cristiano Ronaldo Go to Work on the LA Galaxy Defense

The LA Galaxy aren't a club of nobodies, but Cristiano Ronaldo sure made them look like it last night.

The football virtuoso carved his way through the Galaxy defense, pushing his way toward the net and firing a volley by the keeper for a brilliant strike in Los Blancos' 4-1 romp of the MLS side.

As the play develops, you think that the Galaxy have Ronaldo bottled up fairly well, but before you know it, the defenders are falling over themselves.

At that point, the striker has a clear lane to the net, where he blasts the ball past the keeper from a fairly difficult angle.

If you watch the replay, it's amazing how Ronaldo makes defender after defender look foolish, and if you're one of those unfortunate souls who fell victim to the star's run, you have to tip your cap and move on. 

Those defenders aren't used to playing against clubs of Real Madrid's caliber, and have never seen someone who can control the ball quite like Ronaldo.

When someone like that hits you with his full arsenal of moves, there's little you can do besides close your eyes and hope for the best. 

Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, and against lesser clubs like Los Angeles, his skill inevitably shines through, as he exploits weaker defenses with his superior footwork. 

Whether you love him or you hate him, there is no denying how talented Ronaldo is, and that goal will be watched and re-watched for a long, long time.

While that play may get all of the accolades, in hindsight, you cannot say enough good things about Real Madrid's performance.

It was clear from the moment the match started that Ronaldo was the best player in the stadium, and Los Blancos played like a side that knew it outclassed the Galaxy.

That belief shined through in Real Madrid's performance, as the Spanish giants played with confidence, poise and skill, as the Galaxy ended up getting steamrolled by Ronaldo and the rest of Los Blancos' stars. 

Last night's victory was an impressive start to a promising campaign, and if Ronaldo can continue to work his magic, there's no telling how far Real Madrid can go on the world stage.
