Ronaldo to debut for Real Madrid next week

Posted By: Staff

Madrid (Spain), July 12 (ANI): Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo will make his Real Madrid debut next week.

The world's most expensive footballer flies into Real's Dublin training camp tomorrow with the sort of security that hasn't been seen since Pope John Paul II visited Ireland 30 years ago.

An army of police and security staff will guard the Carton House Hotel and sports complex Ronaldo, Kaka and the Spanish giant's other superstars are staying in for 10 days.

And, according to The Sun, when he makes his first appearance in front of a sellout 12,000 crowd against Shamrock Rovers, it will be beamed to millions all over the world.

The 80-million-pound star won't play the full 90 minutes, but the organizers have reportedly sold five times as many tickets in a new stadium that has a 3,500 capacity. (ANI)
