Cristiano Ronaldo is in the starting eleven for Manchester United five days after the death of his newborn son and scores a goal. His jubilation provides a goosebump moment.

Cristiano Ronaldo was back on the pitch in the away game at Arsenal FC on Saturday afternoon, five days after the death of his newborn child.

In the 34th minute, with the score at 0-2, Nemanja Matic crossed into the box and CR7 pushed the ball over the line with his left foot.

It was his 100th goal in the Premier League – probably the most emotional of his career.

Ronaldo high-fived his team-mates after his goal and looked skywards. He pointed his left index finger to the sky in a salute to his deceased son.

Last Monday, the Portuguese announced that his son had died in childbirth. His twin sister survived the birth.

Ronaldo’s goal did not help turn the game around as Manchester United lost the away match 3-1. The goals for Arsenal were scored by Nuno Tavares (3rd), Bukayo Saka (32nd) and Granit Xhaka (70th). At 1:2, United’s Bruno Fernandes also missed a penalty (57th).
