Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut in the Champions League on his return to Manchester United will be hard for the Portuguese to forget. All the lights pointed to one of the footballers called to be one of the great stars of the tournament and Cristiano did not take long to respond to expectations. Although, perhaps, his first big moment of the afternoon was not what he expected. And it is that during the warm-up of the game that faced the ‘Red Devils’ against the Young Boys, one of his powerful throws hit one of the ‘steward’ agents who guard the access to the field. The man had to receive assistance and the Portuguese, concerned, did not hesitate to approach to inquire about his condition.
After the opening whistle, his presence on the green also became news. With 177 matches played in the top continental competition, Cristiano Ronaldo equaled Iker Casillas as the footballer with the most participations.
