Cristiano Ronaldo Scores In Charity Match And Opposition Player Joins In For His ‘Sí’ Celebration

Juventus' season might be over, but that doesn't mean that Cristiano Ronaldo is done with football yet.

Ahead of his involvement in the Nations League semi-finals, the 34-year-old Portuguese footballer took part in a charity match at the Allianz Stadium on Monday night.

Along with Ronaldo, footballing legends like Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Pirlo, Francesco Totti and Pavel Nedvěd were at the 'Partita Del Cuore,' which translates to 'match of the heart.'

The match was held in held support of the Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research and for the Telethon Foundation, which featured sports stars like Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel in attendance.

In fact, outgoing Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was spotted on the touchline, too.

Even if it was a charity match, that didn't mean Ronaldo was not going to play at his best.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United star added his name to the scoresheet in style with a tidy finish and, of course, he celebrated with his trademark 'Sí' celebration.

However, one of the opposition players couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner when he scored.

Ronaldo has had a superb start to life in Italy with Juventus, making 43 appearances across all competitions, scoring 28 times and assisting on 13 occasions.

While the Old Lady missed out on the Champions League crown, the Portugal captain was able to lift the Serie A title and Supercoppa Italiana trophy with his side -- that's not to mention winning the Serie A Player of the Year award, too.

Madrid president Florentino Pérez recently opened up about his relationship with the former Los Blancos talisman and said that he was the best player that he signed for the Spanish club.

"He never created any problems during the nine years at Real Madrid, never once arriving late or anything," he said on El Transistor.

"I think he's the best player I signed for Real Madrid. I always had a great relationship with him.

"We never had any problems, not even over money. We never talked about his [tax] debt."

How far will Juventus progress in the Champions League next season?
