|Ronaldo passing the ball (http://www.popartuk.com/g/l/lgsp0352.jpg)|
Imagine playing on a field with thousands of people watching you. Can you do that without being nervous? Ronaldo has done that for many years. He was born and grew up in Portugal. Ronaldo has impressive soccer skills, encourages people to play, and he is cool.
Cristiano Ronaldo is my hero because he has soccer skills. He can get past players with tricks like scissors or three sixty. He also has good control of the ball and can dribble the ball from one goal to the other without stopping. Ronaldo can score even when there is a wall of players in front of him. He got player of the year last year because he was very good.

I also like Ronaldo because he encourages me to play soccer. Although I am a goalie, I sometimes play midfield or forward. I do some of his tricks like scissors or nutmeg. The only way for me to score is if the ball is on the ground. Unlike Ronaldo, I have only scored five goals so far. I want to be as good as Ronaldo when I grow up.
Another reason Ronaldo is my hero is because he is cool. He has pine green Mercural Vapor cleats. He also has cool soccer skills like the nutmeg. It is a move when you pass the ball through the player's legs and you run around them and get the ball. He is very strong and can run without stopping. I want to be the same as Ronaldo.
I want to be as good as Ronaldo when I grow up. I want to learn skillful moves and wear nice soccer shoes. If I could play on a soccer field with thousands of people watching me, I would.
