Cristiano Ronaldo back at ManUnited with dream double

September 12, 2021

What a dream comeback! On Saturday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo put on the Manchester United dress for the first time in twelve years – and scored straight away. And because one goal does not meet the demands of Mr. Ronaldo, he netted twice in the 4-1 home win against Newcastle of the “Red Devils”.
Ronaldo was thrown right into the starting lineup in a game that had the feel of a major occasion at Old Trafford, where he last appeared in a Manchester United shirt back in May 2009. He didn’t disappoint the sell-out crowd on hand.
With ten points after four games, the Red Devils are first in the table. Ronaldo benefited in his first goal from a mistake by Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, who could only parry a shot from Mason Greenwood. The veteran steered the rebound over the line without any problems (45th + 2). After the surprising equalizer by Javier Manquillo (56th), Ronaldo overcame the visiting goalkeeper six minutes later with a shot between the legs. Compatriot Bruno Fernandes (80th) and Jesse Lingard (92nd) were able to increase.
His return was enough to generate a feverish atmosphere among 74,000 in attendance not seen at Old Trafford for many years.
