A resurgent Cristiano played comfortably after scoring the penalty for the first goal of the season, the Portuguese star partnered Antony on more than one occasion, as well as leading the attack with experience alongside compatriot Bruno Fernandes.

The game went from strength to strength, and a move where Eriksen showed his quality by assisting Jadon Sancho who took it upon himself to score the first goal of the game, he made a great cut back and finished his shot into the corner of the Sheriff goal.

The second goal came after a great individual play by Diogo Dalot where after a forward pass he was fouled in the opponent's box, that caused Cristiano to take the ball to put the second goal from the eleven steps.

The second half of the match was more of a routine affair, in which they were able to cool the game down and comfortably finish off the victory in Moldova. Casemiro provided security in midfield and that made it easier for Eriksen to be more offensive and creative in his plays.

Cristiano delivered on his goal to give the Red Devils the win

Cristiano was active on social media as he showed himself to be adaptable, and in a leaked video from The Sun Football he was seen sharing ideas with his coach, Erik ten Hag. Cristiano came on in the 80th minute for the young Swedish player, Elanga, to a standing ovation from the modest Sheriff Tiraspol stadium.
