Ronaldo finally reveals why he chose to play for Juventus

Ronaldo wasn't swayed by Juventus' overhead kick ovation

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

There was only going to be one victor from there as he took one touch before comfortably slotting the ball into the top corner.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor beat the offside trap with Federico Bernardeschi playing a ball over the top to put Ronaldo through one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Ronaldo ended his record-breaking tenure with Real Madrid this summer in a shock switch to Juventus.

And the five time Ballon d'Or victor is set to pull on the black-and-white-striped shirt of the Old Lady for the first time.

The Saudi Kingdom was less than thrilled about Canada's "interference", saying it had no business to meddle in its local affairs. Bahrain said it supports the measures by Saudi Arabia in response to statements made by Canada's foreign affairs minister.

And Ronaldo certainly showed no signs of rustiness after his break as he opened the scoring for the first team just eight minutes into the game.

The 33-year-old will pocket £106,180,616 over four years, £26,545,154 a year and £510,483 a week at Juventus, which equates to £2,212,096 per month.

Fans tried to get whatever autographs and photos they could - even stripping returning centre-back Leonardo Bonucci down to his underwear - before Ronaldo emerged from the changing room surrounded by security guards and fans surged towards the barrier separating them from the players.

The Agnelli family have run Juventus for almost 100 years and chairman Andrea Agnelli was instrumental in securing the funds required to pluck Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, who led Portugal to the European Championship in 2016, also won the Champions League at Manchester United as well as three English Premier League titles and the FA Cup with the Red Devils.
