Fans were anxiously sitting tight for Cristiano Ronaldo’s first game against Newcastle- – and for sure, the striker demonstrated why his move from Juventus back to Manchester United was important.
Cristiano Ronaldo was exceptionally emotional subsequent to scoring two classic homecoming goals for the Manchester United fans on Saturday September 11, as they continued singing Ronaldo’s name all through the match. His team won by 4-1 against Newcastle, but the news was centered around CR7’s two goals scored.
As indicated by the player, he was very nervous prior to the game against Newcastle. Notwithstanding, before and after the game, he was flabbergasted by the fans of Old Trafford. They came in their numbers.
Ronaldo put United ahead before half-time at Old Trafford and later reestablished their advantage after a Javier Manquillo equalizer, making way for Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard to put the sparkle on a 4-1 win with beautiful late goals.
The No 7 Jersey man lived up to his well-earned reputation during the game. He was practically all around the pitch hungry for a win for his side. He really needed to make a statement just like he did 18 years ago.
“It’s unbelievable. When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear. But I think it was normal. I didn’t expect they would sing all game my name so I was very nervous. Maybe it didn’t show, but I was. The reception is incredible, but I’m here to win games, to help the team and get the club back where they deserve.”
Ronaldo ended up scoring twice or more in a game for a surprising 200th time, and his expression was:
“I expected one, but not two. Of course, I’m happy to score the goals, I won’t deny that, but the most important thing is the team. They played consistently, they played at a high level and most of the time, we showed a mature intelligence so I’m proud of that.”
36 year-old Ronaldo, may not be the same sort of player who was very exciting while scoring 118 goals during his first spell in England, but a couple of poacher’s completions were an exemplary sign of the new model.
His First Two Goals:
Ronaldo’s first goal against Newcastle was an error by the goalie, but he immediately followed up and tapped it in.
The second goal was an extraordinary touch detracted from Isaac Hayden and he hits it hard and low. What’s more, it went through the goalkeeper’s legs.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo has been certified by Guinness World Records, as the Most goals scored in international football (soccer) matches by an individual in the male category between 2003 and 2021.
