Ron­aldo de­fies scan­dal with Ju­ven­tus strike

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Sport | Football -

Cris­tiano Ron­aldo put aside the scan­dal sur­round­ing rape al­le­ga­tions made against him to score for Ju­ven­tus in a 2-0 vic­tory over Udi­nese yes­ter­day.

The Por­tuguese su­per­star for­ward turned out for the Ital­ian club a week af­ter a wo­man from Ne­vada filed a civil law­suit ac­cus­ing him of rap­ing her nine years ago.

He scored the sec­ond goal in the Serie A match with a pow­er­ful an­gled shot and then sig­nalled for his team­mates to give him space to cel­e­brate in front of a TV cam­era, where he leapt into the air with a dou­ble fist-pump.
