                        <strong>The five-time Ballon d’Or winner didn’t waste much time getting into the good graces of his new supporters, as he found the net just eight minutes into his Juventus debut in a 3-2 friendly defeat by Juventus B.</strong>

        Ronaldo donned the famous black and white striped kit for the first time since his big-money move from European champions Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup. The Portuguese latched on to a ball over the top of the defense, controlled it with one touch before sending it past the goalkeeper.

The friendly game between Juventus A and Juventus B has been a tradition since 1955 and takes place annually at the Agnelli family estate 25 miles outside of Turin. Emre Can, a summer signing from Liverpool, also appeared in the match which, remarkably, was won by the B team 3-2.

Ronaldo is expected to make his competitive debut for Juventus away at Chievo Verona on Saturday August 18.
