Cristiano Ronaldo: Portuguese superstar's son scores FOUR for Juventus' youth team

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that the Italian media have hit out at Cristiano Ronaldo for not leaving up to the billing with his new side, Juventus. "He scored 15 goals, carried Real Madrid on his back and conquered the Champions League again".

Juventus' £99 million summer signing could perhaps do with some finishing lessons from his son, however, as Ronaldo remains without a goal in his three Serie A appearances so far this season.

"Juventus were always a big candidate but they have transformed themselves into the biggest candidate because they don't hide that the investment they have made has been made to win it".

Perhaps time away during the worldwide break could be exactly what the doctor ordered, allowing Ronaldo to reflect on his first few weeks in Italy.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri is keeping cool though.

"Italian football presents different problems and it takes time", he said. "He is still a top player - unless he fails to score this weekend and you tell me he is not a good player anymore!"

"He's not getting the rub of the green at the moment either - the ball is not bouncing right for him or he's shooting just off target". "We lose at home, [and] if the fans react bad, the team loses confidence, the team feels pressure and the next match is more hard".

"[Gonzalo] Higuain did it once, but was an extraordinary feat".

Real Madrid are not suffering following the exit of their record all-time goal scorer, earning three wins from three games after thrashing Leganes 4-1 on Saturday thanks to Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. "So maybe it's better for us".

Ronaldo has been left out of Portugal's squad for their friendly against Croatia and Uefa Nations League opener against Italy during the worldwide break. Antonio Candreva, with his first Serie A goal since April a year ago, and Croatia World Cup forward Ivan Perisic added two more goals in the last 10 minutes as Inter cantered home, finally beginning to look like title contenders.
