Cristiano Ronaldo needed just one half of football to get back among the goals for Manchester United, with the Portuguese superstar netting a double on his second debut for the club.
It looked like being a frustrating opening 45 minutes for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner against Newcastle, but Old Trafford erupted in stoppage-time when the deadlock was finally broken.
The vast majority of those in attendance were there to witness the return of a prodigal son, and he did not disappoint when giving the masses what they wanted.
With Cristiano Ronaldo marking his return with a brace, Manchester United sealed a 4-1 win against Newcastle United in the Premier League, at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Portuguese captain scored his first goal at the cusp of half-time, via a deflection. Javier Manquillo bought Newcastle back into the game with a driving effort in the early stages of second-half.
But Ronaldo had other plans, scoring his second goal within a few minutes after a through ball from Luke Shaw.
Bruno Fernandes added another goal for United with a long-range effort in the 80th-minute. Jesse Lingard, who came in as a substitute, scored another goal for the home side in the dying stages of injury time.
