He made his debut as a substitute in a 4-0 win, scoring a free-kick as his first goal for the Red Devils.

Cristiano Ronaldo Style Of Play
Cristiano Ronaldo began his career as a winger, using his speed and trickery to beat players in one-on-one situations and deliver passes and goals into the box. From a young age, he was renowned for his shooting ability, specifically when it came to long-range strikes and free kicks. Cristiano developed his own trademark technique for free kicks which involved striking through the center of the ball in order to create an unpredictable path of flight.
As Ronaldo matured, he underwent a major physical transformation, developing a muscular body type that allowed him to retain possession of the ball under pressure, and strong legs that enabled an outstanding jumping ability.
His strength and jumping ability, combined with his elevation, heading accuracy and height of 1.87 m (6 ft 1+1⁄2 in), give him an edge in winning aerial duels. These qualities allow him to function as a target-man and make him an aerial goal threat in the penalty area; consequently, many of his goals have been headers.
In his final seasons at United, Ronaldo played an even more attacking and central role, functioning both as a striker and as a supporting forward, or even as an attacking midfielder on occasion. He developed into a prolific goalscorer, capable of finishing well both inside the penalty area and from distance with an accurate and powerful shot, courtesy of his striking ability
Later in his career, Cristiano played as a central, traditional striker. As his pace diminished with age, Ronaldo reinvented his style of play to be more of a “goal poacher, finishing clinically inside the box. His ability to score from crosses is especially notable – either by towering headers or spectacular bicycle kicks. In recent years, Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick abilities have suffered.
