This goal was the first of the season for the leader of the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo doesn’t often get into the starting line-up under new coach Erica ten Hage. In the championship of England, the attacker appeared on the field six times and only once was in the starting line-up, without scoring a goal. In the first round of the Europa League, the Portuguese started the match against Real Sociedad, played the entire match, but could not score.

37-year-old Ronaldo still has a year left on his contract with Manchester United. The Portuguese moved to the English club from Juventus a year ago. The Turin team stated that Manchester United will pay €15 million for the transfer of the striker over five years. The amount can increase by another €8 million if Ronaldo achieves certain sports results.
