His quest for greatness started 19 years ago while plying his trade for Sporting CP where he made a name for himself as a dribbling phenom.
And he put that on show as he scored his first goal of his career.
A then teenage Ronaldo got on the ball and produced a moment of magic for his boyhood club.
He drove with purpose, performing his now signature step overs before slotting home in a superb sequence to score his first professional goal.
Ronaldo wheeled away in delight, celebrating with his teammates in front of the home supporters.
An incredible moment for Ronaldo who has since bagged an astonishing 759 goals in his career.
After a short spell at Sporting CP, Manchester United came calling and snapped up the Portuguese starlet who rose to prominence at Old Trafford.
