Cristiano Ronaldo 'got a bullseye': Chievo keeper Stefano Sorrentino jokes about injury

Juventus trailed early in the second half of Cristiano Ronaldo's Serie A debut, but the Bianconeri fought back to earn a late win at Chievo Verona.

Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino joked that Cristiano Ronaldo found his mark on Sunday, despite not scoring a goal against him.

Sorrentino, 39, was temporarily knocked out after a collision with Ronaldo in the final moments of the 3-2 defeat to Juventus, which saw him replaced by Andrea Seculin.

The goalkeeper was released from hospital on Sunday morning after reportedly sustaining a fractured nose, whiplash and a bruised left shoulder. But he was in jovial mood on social media.

VERONA, Italy -- The whooshing rotor blades gave it away; the helicopter overhead could mean only one thing. Juventus fans have learned to associate Cristiano Ronaldo with them. A month ago, the club's president, Andrea Agnelli, boarded one for Greece to shake hands with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner on his move to Juventus. Now, one belonging to the local police hovered overhead as the Juventus bus, designed by Agnelli's playboy cousin Lapo Elkann, weaved its way into Verona.

It took Juventus all of three minutes to open the scoring in their opening match of the Serie A season but despite controlling possession and the game, Cristiano Ronaldo & co. struggled, only managing to beat Chievo in injury time.

Welcome to Italy, Cristiano. Serie A may not always excite you but it knows how to throw a curveball or two. Chievo were 2-1 up following Emanuele Giaccherini's penalty and it appeared Ronaldo's bow was set for a disappointing conclusion.

But Juve never give up and...

Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus emphasises Roma's buy low, sell high transfer policy

Juventus are the unanimous pick from the FC crew to win Serie A, but not everyone is convinced Cristiano Ronaldo will be player of the year.

On Sunday, Roma begin their new Serie A season following one of the most dramatic summers the league can remember. At one end of the table, the arrival of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has brought all eyes on Italy, while at the other Chievo's shameful balance sheet chicanery and the match-fixing scandal that engulfed Parma striker Emanuele Calaio has further stained Italian football's already spotty reputation.
