Matildas star Sam Kerr has dismissed Sydney Swans' suggestion that Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning overhead kick in the Champions League was matched by Luke Parker's AFL goal in round one.
The Swans put out a video tweet shortly after Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo scored the goal against Juventus, comparing the strike to Parker's overhead kick against West Coast.

But Kerr, who has achieved superstar status in football after the past few months, took to Twitter to respond to the Swans' social media post.
Former Western Sydney and Adelaide defender Robert Cornthwaite also chimed in with a more scientific answer as to why Ronaldo's goal was better than Parker's effort.
-One player is on the ground, the other making contact at 2m+— 코 니. Rob Cornthwaite (@robcornthwaite) April 4, 2018
-One player can kick the ball as high as they like, the other has to keep it under 8ft
- One goal seen by millions? The other by hundreds of millions+

A later tweet from Cornthwaite suggested he may have been fishing and fuelling the debate.
Which goal do you think was the best?
