Christiano Ronaldo's legendary comeback was marked by a successful second Man United debut as the prolific Portuguese forward netted a brace against Newcastle United at Old Trafford. Definitely, this was the most interesting moment the Red Devils will leave to remember in the coming seasons.
Apparently, Ronaldo has gotten into more football historical books as having balanced levels with Iker Cassilas having played the highest number of Champions League matches (181 games).
CR7 181st appearance came at a Young Boys-Man United battle that marked the first fixture of the 2021/22 Champions League group stages. Interestingly, Ronaldo scored the first goal of this match at the 16th minute.
Notably, before the Young Boys-Man United game begun, Christiano stole the show during the match build up. During the warm-up, one of Ronaldo's shot unfortunately hit a security guard.
Each fan will agree that Christiano's shot power is ever speedy and maybe harmful if it hits someone off guard. But after the inevitable act, the world class Portuguese showcased his humility. He urgently attended to the guard to have a thorough check up on whether the ball made a serious injury on the stewart.
Definitely, the Portuguese International is at greater heights. Arguably, his aging career seems to be making him more wiser and matured.
Unfortunately, the day didn't end well for the football legend and fellow Red Devils stars. Just before the halftime whistle blower, Wan Bissaka was sent off by a red card. This marked the beginning of struggles for Man United for the rest of the game.
Switzerland Giants Young Boys greatly utilized the 10-man opponents advantage. They dominated and an equalizer came before the 70th minute of the second half as Christiano Ronaldo got subbed off at the 72nd minute.
