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

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. "Thanks to all of the fans for their great support!"

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.

'Time Has Come' For US Space Force, Sixth Military Branch: Mike Pence
We've seen repeatedly where the Air Force has reached into space program funds to put them against fighter jets, bombers, tankers. On Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis called Pence "the point man" on issues pertaining to the U.S. military and space.

But with the extra excitement of being within touching distance of Ronaldo, the supporters couldn't wait and the match was called off 20 minutes before the full 90.

Thousands of Juventus fans arrived for the friendly against their U19 side in anticipation of watching Ronaldo make his first appearance and got what they came to see.

His domestic form last season - despite scoring 26 goals in La Liga - was below the nearly superhuman levels that had characterised his time in Spain as Madrid finished third behind local rivals Atletico and a whole 17 points behind champions Barcelona.

Premier League clubs that broke their transfer records this summer
However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season. I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in.

There should be more fans at the match than the entire population of Villar Perosa, with the 5,000 tickets available long-since sold out and even more supporters desperate to try and catch a glimpse of their new idol.

You can't help but be excited at Ronaldo's arrival in the Italian capital.

Although Ronaldo stated there was no specific moment that made his choice for him, he did reiterate his appreciation for Juve's fans after they applauded his overhead kick in Turin last season.

Melania's parents' lawyer says they obtained citizenship through chain migration
The Slovenian immigrants, a former vehicle dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the U.S.as permanent residents. Their son-in-law has frequently attacked USA immigration laws, calling them the "dumbest laws on immigration in the world".

Juventus fans are now Ronaldo fans.
