Richard Kingson falls on the list of Ronaldo's humiliated goalkeepers

Former Ghana international Richard Kingson has been included in the list of goalkeepers that Brazilian Ronaldo managed to round the keeper to score a goal 88 times during his career.

The phenomenal player scored 414 goals in 616 career appearances for club and country.

He possessed many skills that he’ll be remembered for, such as his incredible speed, intricate dribbling and assured finishing, but fans often associate him with one other thing.

Ronaldo’s ability to dribble past goalkeepers is arguably second to none across the history of football, consistently putting keepers on their backsides before walking it into an empty net.

One particularly memorable occasion was in the 2006 World Cup when Brazil defeated Ghana 3-0 with Richard Kingson in post.

He was put through on goal via a piercing through ball from Kaka, but then it was all about Brazil’s star striker.

A quick step-over with the right foot was enough to put Kingson to the ground, before Ronaldo shifted it to the left and rolled the ball home.
