Cristiano Ronaldo have scored two goals on his return to Manchester United
The Portuguese star scored the Red Devils’ first two goals on their 4-1 triumph over Newcastle United in his first action for the club since his $28 million transfer acquisition from Juventus in August.
Ronaldo was thrown right into the starting lineup in a game that had the feel of a major occasion at Old Trafford, where he last appeared in a Manchester United shirt back in May 2009. He didn’t disappoint the sell-out crowd on hand.
The Manchester United No. 7 poached his first goal just before halftime after the Newcastle goalkeeper spilled a shot and Ronaldo pushed the ball over the line.
After Newcastle scored a surprise equalizer, Ronaldo got his team back in front with a patented Ronaldo goal: He beat his defender one-on-one and fired a left-footed ball under the goalkeeper.
