Along with the rest of his international cohorts, Cristiano Ronaldo spent his Wednesday limbering up for Portugal’s upcoming World Cup qualifying double-header against Andorra and the Faroe Islands.
Despite having not made an international appearance since the culmination of Euro 2016, the Real Madrid superstar looked to be in fine form as he thwacked shot after shot into the back of the net during a finishing drill.
In fact, things were going so swimmingly that he even started showing off — we know, perish the thought — by tucking away a nonchalant rabona here and there.

Stunning, and that’s just his entirely hairless thighs.
Between Ronaldo’s timely return to form and both Andorra and the Faroe Islands sharing a combined FIFA world ranking of 314, we’re hereby backing the former to get back on the international goal trail at some point over the course of the next week or so.
