Emotional moments at Old Trafford. Ronaldo leave her mother and Fergurson emotional with debut goal

Manchester united have excited the fans once again at Old Trafford and the man who had the most attention on the field, Cristiano Ronaldo made a massive contribution. Manchester United had been piling the pressure on Steve Bruce side but were lacking the cutting edge to unlock the composed Newcastle Castle defence, however the difference came in the addition time of the first half, when Cristiano Ronaldo tapped in a lose ball from two yards after the Magpies goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman was unable to save Mason Greenwood's shot, bouncing off his glooves to present the sitter for the Portuguese.

Newcastle equalized 11 minutes into the second half through Javier Manquillo bringing the Magpies back to the game but it didn't take too long for Ronaldo to make the difference again, after he got to the end of Luke Shaw's through pass and blast it through the legs of Freddie Woodman to double United's lead. His compatriot, Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard got the third and fourth respectively to seal a 4-1 win for the Red devils. 

Nonetheless the atmosphere got emotional when Ronaldo's mother couldn't hold back his tears as she watched her son from the stands dazzle and score in his debut match. Former Manchester united manager, Sir Alex Fergurson was also in the stands an was all smiles as he watched his former student replicating what he learnt under his tutelage. 

With another three points secured, they will prepare for their next match on Tuesday in the champions league, where they face Swiss outfit, Young Boys FC and their win today would surely be a massive boost to Ole's men going into the game.
