Cristiano Ronaldo scores for Juventus on his friendly debut

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Speaking to JuventusTV, as quoted by Goal, Ronaldo outlined why he chose Juve above anybody else.

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.

Ronaldo finished with his usual confidence and poise after latching onto a looping pass over the midfield from attacking midfelder Federico Bernardeschi.

He played a part in the second goal as well, putting Riccardo Capellini under pressure as a low cross came into the box and the Juve youngster put past his own goalkeeper. It's not against top competition, but he looks comfortable and his scoring touch, as expected, is still there.

Juventus fans celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in July.

Juventus fans gathering to watch the five-time Ballon d'Or victor at Villar Perosa - in a rural area of Piedmont in northern Italy - held up banners. "Since I was a child I knew this team and I hoped that one day I could play with it".

That's a staggering fee for a 33-year-old, but this is Ronaldo we're talking about.

Juventus, though, have signed Ronaldo not to cement their domestic dominance, after winning seven straight league titles, but to boost their global profile and bag their first Champions League triumph in over two decades. Ronaldo tries to keep the ball up for his teammate but mis-controls the ball leaving him red-faced and his opponents in stitches. Juventus has lost five finals since its last European Cup success.
