Cristiano Ronaldo Scores Against Newcastle On His Second Man United Debut, Old Trafford Erupts

Cristiano Ronaldo has reopened his Manchester United goal account, scoring against Newcastle on his second debut for the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasted no time in naming Ronaldo in his XI, starting the returning legend against Newcastle on Saturday.

And he made his mark just before half-time, tapping home from close range to score his first goal of the season.

Mason Greenwood fired a strike which Freddie Woodman parried into the path of Ronaldo, who poked the ball into the back of the net.

The 36-year-old wheeled away in trademark celebratory fashion as Old Trafford erupted.

Speaking about his decision to start Ronaldo, Solskjaer told MUTV: "He's [Ronaldo] ready, he's been focused, professional, meticulous in everything he does, that means a lot to everyone else.

"You look at him and what he's done and everyone wants to prove to him what they can do."

Ronaldo scored another goal in the second-half as Man United beat Newcastle 4-1 to move top of the league.
