Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo scores goal vs. U20s in first appearance

Cristiano Ronaldo

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.

But with the extra excitement of being within touching distance of Ronaldo, the supporters couldn't wait and the match was called off 20 minutes before the full 90.

The Agnelli family, who own the Serie A champions, own an estate in Villar Perosa and have invited the teams to play a friendly every year since 1955.

Such was the dominance of the Agnellis over the town that deceased former club chairman Gianni Agnelli was mayor between 1945 and 1980.

Cristiano Ronaldo made the biggest transfer of the summer, as he departed Real Madrid after nine years to join Italian champions Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus debut was forced to be cut short after supporters stormed the pitch to mob him and his team-mates during their final pre-season friendly on Sunday.

Nadal advances to third round in Rogers Cup
Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas set up a match against Djokovic, knocking off seventh-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6). Unseeded Canadian and former world number three Raonic was no match for Frances Tiafoe in a 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-1 loss.

Interest in Juve and in Italian football has spiked following Ronaldo's arrival.

Ronaldo proved good value for the hype, scoring in the 10th minute with a neat finish after breaking a loose offside trap and closing in on goal completely unmarked.

Dybala then struck after Ronaldo's shot was blocked as Juve's first team filled their boots.

As is custom, the game was interrupted in the second half for a pitch invasion and the game ended with Juventus picking up a comfortable win.

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