Cristiano Ronaldo Makes First Juventus Appearance, Scores

Ronaldo was the star of a friendly between the Juventus senior side and the club’s under-20 squad.

An annual friendly between the Juventus first team and the under-20 squad (that sounds rough) at the Agnelli family estate (the founders of FIAT motor company and owners of the club) saw Cristiano Ronaldo make his first appearance for the Old Lady. It took the Portuguese eight minutes to open his account after a ball over the top sent him through on goal.

The Juve U-20 keeper decided to stay on his line, and Ronaldo buried his effort inside the left post. 

Ronaldo would then force an own goal in the 18th minute before a first half brace from Paulo Dybala and a 53rd minute goal from Claudio Marchisio put the first team up 5-0. 

In the 72nd minute, a pitch invasion from the 5,000 fans in attendance would end the match. For the U-20s, that’s probably for the best.
