In 2019 Juventus travelled to East Asia and took on a K-League all-star team in a pre-season friendly.

Cesinha scored to put his side 2-1 up and decided to mark his goal using Ronaldo’s trademark ‘Siuuu’ celebration – alongside a few team-mates.

CR7 initially did not look impressed watching on from the sidelines but he allowed himself a wry smile

And showed wonderful humility after the match.

Cesinha has relived the story in great detail, telling Portuguese outlet UOL: It was a day that I never wanted it to end.

“I had already agreed with the Brazilian, Éder [partner in Daegu]”

“that if I scored the goal, I would celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo, because here in the League I already did.

“The goal happened, we made [the celebration] together, and I saw at the time that he was kind of upset”

“But I went there and I bowed to him, so he could see that it wasn’t offending”

“Later, I asked for his shirt, right, yes, for sure [laughs]”

“He understood, and I said how much I was his fan, that he was my idol and that day was being a dream come true.

“He was very affectionate, he told me that I was a great player, to always believe in the potential that I can reach unimaginable places. That day never left my head. It was ‘the day’.”
