After a wildly successful nine years at Real Madrid which yielded four Champions League titles, Cristiano Ronaldo made the move to Italian side Juventus in the summer, for around £90m.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal in his first Juventus appearance as the first team defeated the B team, their under-20 squad, 5-0 in the club's annual friendly at the Agnelli family estate in rural Villar Perosa. "Thanks to all of the fans for their great support!"

Cristiano Ronaldo collects the ball from the goal in his first game for Juventus.

He was at both the 2017 Champions League final in Cardiff, when Ronaldo scored a brace as Real Madrid hammered Juve 4-1, and in Madrid last season when the Portuguese slotted the last-gasp penalty that knocked Juve out in the quarter finals.

Ronaldo proved good value for the hype, scoring in the 10th minute with a neat finish after breaking a loose offside trap and closing in on goal completely unmarked.

With the end of summer, there is also the news of the tech giant Google for the smartphone market, both in software and hardware. The handset comes with a 6-inch Quad HD+ (2880×1440) Super LCD6 display and driven by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 .

US Space Force to debut by 2020, Pence announces at Pentagon

Anti-racist protestors march through Charlottesville
On August 12, fighting broke out between neo-Nazi supporters and anti-fascists from a black-clad group called Antifa. This weekend is the anniversary of the deadly Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia .

And in his first unofficial outing, he took just eight minutes to make the difference, latching on to a pass in behind the Primavera team's defence and emphatically firing past Leonardo Loria in goal.

"With the arrival of Ronaldo our expectations are higher for the Champions League".

With just a week to go until the Serie A season kicks off, Ronaldo will have wanted to work off the rustiness on the field, and he had the chance to do so against the Juve B-team.

That could mean Ronaldo gets even more up close and personal with Juve fans.

Juventus, though, have signed Ronaldo not to cement their domestic dominance, after winning seven straight league titles, but to boost their global profile and bag their first Champions League triumph in over two decades.
