Lozano: Ronaldo congratulated me and welcomed me to Italy

Hirving Lozano made quite an impact on his Serie A debut, scoring for Napoli against Juventus not long after coming off the bench, before receiving praise from Cristiano Ronaldo.

The goal made it 3-2, narrowing Napoli’s deficit by one before eventually managing to equalise.

Juventus painfully grabbed the winner in injury time via an own goal but the Mexican spoke of a pleasant moment after the game with Ronaldo.

“After their last goal, he approached me and congratulated me,” he told TUDN.

“He welcomed me to Italy.

“It was something very nice, he is a spectacular player, out of this world. It was something very nice.

Despite the result, Lozano took the positives from the enthralling clash.

“I really enjoyed the game because the team played very well and also for playing against great players, not only Cristiano.”
