Ronaldo scores twice on Real debut


Ronaldo took less than a minute to score on his Real Madrid debut and added a second goal as the European champions ran out 5-2 winners against visitors Alaves today.

The Brazilian World Cup winner made his first appearance since signing from Inter Milan when he came on as a substitute in the 64th minute, with the Real supporters raising the roof of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Fifty seconds later they had even more to cheer as he put his new club 3-1 up against the Basques.

Ronaldo's first goal came after fellow Brazilian Roberto Carlos darted down the left wing and Ronaldo evaded two Alaves defenders in the box, trapped the ball on his chest and slotted it into the net.

Zinedine Zidane got Real off to the right start with a goal after just two minutes.Portuguese star Luis Figo then slotted home a 31st minute penalty before sneaking another from play 19 minutes from time.
