Cristiano Ronaldo in "Leaving Madeira’"

Cristiano Ronaldo’s relentless drive (and dedication to training) is well documented. Underlying it all is an undaunted self-belief, the type that allows him not just to entertain a challenge but to conquer it, as seen in his opening match of the tournament. Nike Football captures his unique mentality in Ronaldo vs. Ronaldon’t, a series of short animated films in which the Portugal star faces off with his self-doubting alter-ego. 

Take a peek inside Ronaldo's mind through the final video in the series, "Leaving Madeira," to see how he made the decision that only positivity could save him from a life of obscurity on a small Atlantic Ocean island.

In the second film, Ronaldo reveals that he talks to the ball – and it would seem that it listens.

Additionally, one of Ronaldo's many famous goals is captured in the series' first film.
