Real Madrid’s Rodrygo denied comparisons with the club’s former Brazilian striker, Ronaldo.
He scored after just 93 seconds, just 31 seconds slower than Ronaldo’s debut goal against Deportivo Alaves in 2002.
Speaking after the game, Rodrygo was quick to play down any suggestion that he will take on a similar role, saying: “I don’t want any comparisons with Ronaldo being made because he’s one of the game’s all-time best and one of my country’s best.
“As for the goal – I controlled it well and knew that from there on in things would work out. I have to always show that I’m capable of playing here.”
The 18-year-old striker scored on his debut for Real Madrid against Osasuna, after comng on as a substitute in the 2-0 win, with fellow Braziilian Vinicius Junior grabbing the other.
