Mason Greenwood smashed in a shot from distance that Woodman absolutely botched, with Cristiano Ronaldo pouncing quickly and capitalizing on the mistake. What a moment for Ronaldo and the United faithful, who have been absolutely buzzing over his return. There have been doubts that he can be the same clinical figure that he was once was for the club, but Cristiano has quickly proven all the doubters wrong in his very first game.
The Portuguese international had several dangerous moments in the first half and even showcased his nifty footwork, which was a huge part of his skill set in his first stint at Man United. Cristiano Ronaldo walked off the pitch at halftime with a huge smile on his face and even applauded the crowd on his way to the tunnel.
Age is just a number, clearly. Ronaldo is off the mark and ready to help the Red Devils win trophies this term. What a magical start for the club legend. You couldn’t ask for a better debut and he will be looking for a brace in the second period.
