Juventus defender Merih Demiral shared several photos celebrating the victory over Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup today in China with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
The photograph showing Demiral fist-pumping Ronaldo was widely shared across social media channels.
The 21-year-old ended up scoring the winning penalty in the shoot out after regulation time ended in a 1-1 draw.
Demiral came on during the half-time break replacing fellow summer arrival Matthijs de Ligt.
The Turkey international put on an impressive display that was widely praised.
Demiral made several important blocks and tackles – one of which went viral on social media.
The 1.92m tall defender joined Juve from Sassuolo on an €18m move at the start of the month on a five-year deal.
The young defender enjoyed a meteoric rise last term joining Alanyaspor on loan from Sporting Lisbon last summer.
Sassuolo snapped him up from the Super Lig side in January and after an impressive showing in the Serie A Juventus ended up signing him.
