(CBS) - Cristiano Ronaldo is a master of making the impossible look easy. The Real Madrid superstar's latest magic trick is this ridiculous back-heel goal against Spanish La Liga rivals Rayo Vallecano. Check out the video and ask yourself, did Ronaldo even think that ball would go in?

Of course, he'll say he did. But there's a reason you don't see blind, back-footed-through-traffic goals very often. Then again, you don't get players like Ronaldo very often either. This incredible goal proved to be the only one of the match (all the other players were probably too embarrassed to try and follow this one up) and Real Madrid won 1-0.
