CRISTIANO GIVEN A RON FOR HIS MONEY

CRISTIANO RONALDO failed to live up to his world record £80m fee on his Real Madrid debut last night against Shamrock Rovers. The Portuguese winger, who moved from Manchester United earlier this month, made little impact as Real struggled to a 1-0 win in Dublin. Another summer signing, French striker Karim Benzema, spared the Spaniards’ blushes with an 88th minute winner. Picture: Action Images
