Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal since he and his partner Georgina Rodriguez announced the death of their newborn son on Monday.
The couple returned home with their baby girl on Thursday
Ronaldo’s goal was scored during United’s match against Arsenal on Saturday. It was his 100th Premier League score, making him the 33rd player to score 100 or more goals in England’s top-flight league.
In the 34th minute, Ronaldo got United on the board after receiving Nemanja Matic’s cross and hit a left-footed attempt from close range to cut Arsenal’s lead to 2-1.
After the goal, Ronaldo pointed to the sky in a subdued celebration.
Ronaldo joined three other former United players—Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, and Wayne Rooney—who have hit the century mark in goals.
