Juventus signed the five-time Ballon d'Or victor for 100 million euros ($117 million) last summer from Real Madrid and pay him a 31-million-euro annual salary.

Cristiano Ronaldo fined for celebration in Juventus Champions League win

"In the first four or five years there I had the feeling of being "Cristiano Ronaldo". He has denied any wrongdoing.

Portugal had 18 shots in Lisbon while Ukraine managed just two. "He makes any team better".

Ronaldo is Europe's leading global scorer with 85 goals for Portugal. Portugal should still have enough, but will need to put in a more clinical display against Serbia next time out, or they could risk falling behind.


Ronaldo himself commands a huge following in Asia, having embarked on a personal "CR7" tour to China after the World Cup last summer.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been fined 20,000 euros ($22,750) by UEFA for making a provocative gesture after Juventus beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

This decision to hand Ronaldo a fine rather than a one-match ban means he will be available for the first leg of Juve's quarterfinal clash away to Ajax on April 10.


Portugal won the 2016 European Championship despite Ronaldo getting injured during the final against France.

The pressure is on Portugal to qualify and defend their title, but with Serbia also in Group B - and Ukraine proving their worth - that task is sure to be a hard one.
