Ronaldinho scores brilliant bicycle kick in Flamengo training, tells team mates to calm down

It may be the start of the season in Brazil, but Flamengo face a season defining game this evening with the second leg of their Copa Libertadores first round match against Real Potosi.

Trailing 2-1 from the away leg, Flamengo need to win to ensure they secure their place in the group stages of South America’s biggest competition.

On Tuesday, Ronaldinho caused headlines across Brazil, after scoring a wonder bicycle kick goal in the final training session before the big match.

After first taking down a long ball on his chest, Ronaldinho played a 1-2 with a team mate in the air before chesting the ball down again and sticking a brilliant bicycle kick into the back of the net.

Perhaps the best part of the clip below, which includes an amazed hamster (!) is Ronaldinho’s reaction: “Normal, normal, normal” – presumably the former Barcelona forward is eager to make sure his team mates are focused on Wednesday night’s big game.
