Cristiano Ronaldo collects the ball from the goal in his first game for Juventus.

"Regarding [Cristiano] Ronaldo, I can say that we have bought a great player on the pitch, but above all, I was told that he is a superb professional, and that is certainly the case".

"The fans after the overhead kick?"

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal in his first Juventus appearance as the first team defeated the B team, their under-20 squad, 5-0 in the club's annual friendly at the Agnelli family estate in rural Villar Perosa.

Members of the industrial dynasty - founders of Fiat auto 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.

After he had finished with his autograph duty, Ronaldo put his game face on and only took eight minutes to score his first goal in black and white.




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

Paulo Dybala scored in the 31st and 40th minutes, and Claudio Marchisio struck in the 53rd minute to round out the scoring for the first team.

That could mean Ronaldo gets even more up close and personal with Juve fans.

Ronaldo once again stopped and signed more autographs than any of his teammates, while security desperately tried to stop young fans from being crushed in the surge before their leading man left for the team bus, accompanied by wild applause.

Ronaldo, who joined the Serie A champions last month in a deal worth a £100million, made the flawless start to life in Turin.
