The setting has changed, but the goalscoring has stayed the same.
After a wildly successful nine years at Real Madrid which yielded four Champions League titles, Cristiano Ronaldo made the move to Italian side Juventus in the summer, for around £90m.
That’s a staggering fee for a 33-year-old, but this is Ronaldo we’re talking about.
While the Serie A season doesn’t kick off until next week, Juventus fans are getting their first look at the great Portuguese as he takes part in a friendly against Juventus B, the Bianconeri’s second/feeder team.
Staying on brand, CR7 scored in the 7th minute.
In acres of space after a long ball from Filipo Bernadeschi, he won’t have an easier chance to score in his new colours, but Ronaldo dispatched it in style nonetheless.
