Ronaldo scores first competitive goal for Juventus in pre-season friendly

Back at Juve, heart is here - Bonucci - English Ronaldo scores in Juventus v Juventus B match

Almost 5,000 fans crammed into the compact "Gaetano Scirea" stadium in Villar Perosa at the foot of the Italian Alps, as supporters descended on the small town in order to catch a glimpse of the superstar attacker in his first appearance since signing for 100 million euros ($117 million) a month ago.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor 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.

The 33-year-old, who signed from Real Madrid for £99.2m in July, scored the first goal in Sunday's 5-0 victory.

Villar Perosa is the fiefdom of the powerful Agnelli family, the founders of Fiat and the clout behind Juve, who bought their family estate there - nicknamed "The Castle" - in the mid-19th century and established the annual pre-season friendly in the town.

"Maybe. Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different".

It has become a tradition down the years for fans to storm onto the pitch, marking an end to the match.

Expected Arsenal Lineup To Face Manchester City
New boss Unai Emery has also selected Petr Cech , Aaron Ramsey , Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka to be part of a leadership group. Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion.

Speaking to press in the days that followed, Trump stated , "You have people who are very fine people on both sides". Northam declared a state of emergency in advance, allowing Charlottesville to have a heavy police presence.

Although Ronaldo stated there was no specific moment that made his choice for him, he did reiterate his appreciation for Juve's fans after they applauded his overhead kick in Turin last season.

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

Goalscorers score goals and nothing has changed for Cristiano Ronaldo, who is off the mark in Italy.

Ronaldo didn't take part in the club's tour of the United States following his appearance at the World Cup, but took part in training last week with other squad members in Turin.
