Cristiano Ronaldo scores for Juventus on his friendly debut

Cristiano Ronaldo

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.

The 33-year-old is expected to make his debut for Massimiliano Allegri's men in a friendly match on Sunday against a Serie B team in Villar Perosa.

"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".

After the game, fans at the game, who had come in their numbers to catch a glimpse of their new number 7, flooded onto the pitch. Ronaldo tries to keep the ball up for his teammate but mis-controls the ball leaving him red-faced and his opponents in stitches.

But after some supporters encroached prematurely in order to ensure they got close to Ronaldo, a full pitch invasion followed and the game was abandoned after 72 minutes.

However, the players will finally get a chance for live action as they face the Buffalo Bills in the first preseason game . "I wasn't even trying to listen", Benjamin said, via the Panthers website .

Ronaldo joined the team for training on Wednesday after their return from the International Champions Cup in the United States.

"In the Champions League against Juve, a quarter-final, you score a goal and see everyone in the stadium applaud you".

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

He was all alone and finished into the left side of the goal easily.

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.
