Normally when we show you a Cristiano Ronaldo goal—like this one or, say, this one—it’s the Portuguese superstar himself who takes center stage. After all, though he may be a bit of a wiener, he is still one hell of a soccer player. Today’s highlight is different, though. It’s a Cristiano Ronaldo goal in which somebody else pulled off the really amazing move. And that somebody else is Real Madrid teammate Angel Di Maria.

Yesterday the Spanish superclub took on FC Copenhagen in Champions League play. The game was close after one half, with Real enjoying just a 1-0 lead. However, in the second half they went on a three-goal binge, starting with a Ronaldo header set up by an absolutely ridiculous pass from Di Maria.

And in case you couldn’t quite see what was so special about that, here’s the animated GIF:
