Cristiano Ronaldo scores on Juventus debut, but his side falls 3-2

Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo Scores In First Juventus Friendly Apperance

Ronaldo started the match and marked the occasion with a goal before an own goal and a quick fire brace from Paulo Dybala gave Juventus a commandable lead heading into the break.

Maxi Allegri certainly fancies their chances. We're talking of a player who has won the Ballon d'Or five times and been top scorer many times.

"Ronaldo has above all brought quality and global experience and is an extra motivation for the younger guys to aim higher", he told Sky Sport Italia.

Juventus were playing their last pre season game against their U19 side in which they were winning 5-0 before the fans stormed the pitch because of Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Now I will play for a fantastic club, one of the biggest clubs in the world".

Ronaldo, who joined Juve from Real Madrid last month, began preseason training on July 30 and did not participate in any of the International Champions Cup games in the United States.

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.

The friendly game between Juventus A and Juventus B has been a tradition since 1955 and takes place annually at the Agnelli family estate 25 miles outside of Turin. According to the Juventus manager, a player of Ronaldo's quality and experience is exactly what they need to go all the way.

Fans swarmed the pitch with 20 minutes remaining to mob Ronaldo, which saw the referee blow the final whistle.

Old Lady fans gathered in decent numbers to see the five-time Ballon d'Or victor at Villar Perosa - in a rural area of Piedmont in northern Italy and cheered him on as Ronaldo showed his full array of tricks and impressed on his Juve debut.
