Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo scores goal vs. U20s in first appearance

Returning Bonucci accepts Juventus jeers

Just five thousand fans were packed into the stadium in Villar Perosa, an estate owned by the Agnelli family which has hosted the friendly since 1955.

The game, between Juventus A and Juventus B, is played yearly in the town of Villar Perosa outside of Turin.

Ronaldo's arrival had sparked rumours that the match would be moved to the Allianz Stadium such was the enthusiasm from fans after his signing, but the club chose to stick with the traditional bucolic setting.

But minutes later a huge swarm of fans invaded the pitch and the game was subsequently abandoned.

Ronaldo was mobbed as fans attempted to grab a selfie with him.

One said "Welcome Ronaldo" and another had his face on it and simply read CR7, in reference to the jersey number Ronaldo made famous as a Real Madrid player.

New signing Emre Can also starts in midfield, with Leonardo Bonucci returning at centre-back after his brief spell at Milan.

Goalscorers score goals and nothing has changed for Cristiano Ronaldo, who is off the mark in Italy.
