Ronaldo nets first Juventus goal

Ronaldo nets first Juventus goal

Ronaldo ended his record-breaking tenure with Real Madrid this summer in a shock switch to Juventus.

"I feel great. Everything is good, the test was good, people around the stadium, the fans, the people in the training ground are very nice with me".

Members of the industrial dynasty - founders of Fiat vehicle manufacturers and often called the "Italian Kennedys" - have lived at "The Castle" in Villar Perosa since the 19th century, while deceased former club chairman Gianni Agnelli was town mayor between 1945 and 1980.

Ronaldo was named in the starting line-up and he took just eight minutes to find the net for the first time wearing a Juventus jersey.

How many goals do you think Ronaldo will score this season?

Ronaldo just put his side 3-0 up with one of the greatest goals in the history of the competition and as he wheeled away in celebration, numerous homefans rose to their feet and applauding a rival player out of respect for the brilliance he had just served up.

The rookie quarterback completed a pass on third-and-18. "I thought he did some good things out there", Jackson said. It's only the first preseason game, but the Baker Mayfield hype train is running like a well-oiled machine.

With just a week to go until the Serie A season kicks off, Ronaldo will have wanted to work off the rustiness on the field, and he had the chance to do so against the Juve B-team.

You can't help but be excited at Ronaldo's arrival in the Italian capital.

The 33-year-old proved too much for Juve's youth players, laying on winger Douglas Costa for a shot that crashed off the post and creating the first of Paulo Dybala's brace thanks to a shot that was well saved by young stopper Leonardo Loria.

However he didn't come out for the second-half of the match, which was eventually won 5-0 by the first XI and came to an end with around 20 minutes left when supporters piled onto the pitch and got a piece of their heroes.

Juventus fans are now Ronaldo fans.

Ronaldo will make his first appearance for the Serie A champions.
