Watch: Jason McAteer Features In A Compilation Of Ronaldo's Best Nutmegs

After Ronaldo (original, Il Fenomeno) went viral on social media for this ridiculously filthy nutmeg in a 5-a-side game:

It seems that everyone is in the mood for some Ronaldo nutmeg action, as a compilation of his best work has again popped up in thousands of twitter feeds and Facebook pages.

For most footballers, a nutmeg compilation would last maybe a minute? Two minutes with replays? Well big Ron is the proud owner of an 8 minute, 37 second nutmeg compilation, and there's a very familiar face (well, back) among the clips.


It seems that Jason McAteer joins the likes of Frank de Boer and Alessandro Nesta in being on the wrong end of a good old fashioned 'nuts' from one of the greatest players ever.


Here's the compilation, McAteer's appears at the 0:23 mark.

I was at that game in February 2004, and although I couldn't remember who #15 was, a quick look at the photos from that day reveals our victim.


A disappointing 0-0, the only memories that truly stick out from the game are Gilberto Silva getting a nasty injury thanks to a tag-team challenge courtesy of Kevin Kilbane and Graham Kavanagh, and watching Roberto Carlos ping cross-field balls around Lansdowne Road in the warm-up.
