Whoever says soccer is boring has never watched a match where Cristiano Ronaldo or Diego Maradona have been involved.

Ronaldo, who plays for Real Madrid is one of the best talents in the game right now. Real Madrid paid a hefty transfer fee to Manchester United to get Ronaldo back in 2009, and have since made him one of the best paid players as well handing over 12 million Euros a year to him.

They haven't regretted it though since he's been kind enough to score over 100 goals for the team in less than three seasons. The goal in the above video was one of two he had on the day in a 5-1 win over Osasuna. Afterwords he appears to do his best Angeline Jolie at the Oscars impersonation.

While Ronaldo can be counted on for excellence on the field, former Argentine great (as a player and coach), Diego Maradona can be counted on for drama off the field. The man responsible for the "Hand of God" goal and the "Goal of the Century" in the '86 World Cup quarterfinals between Argentina and England is now coaching in Dubai.

So far he is becoming pretty well known for his antics on the sideline rather than his team's performance. In a recent loss to Al Shabab he had to be restrained after he entered the stands to protest the opposing fans heckling the wives and girlfriends of his players. Can't say I blame him here, but anytime that guys in army fatigues have to get involved you know things can't be good.
