This Is What Cristiano Ronaldo Looked Like 14 Years Ago

On Wednesday, everyone's favorite playboy, Cristiano Ronaldo, will lead Real Madrid into action as they kick off their UEFA Champions League campaign.

During the group stage of the competition, Real Madrid will come up against Borussia Dortmund and Legia Warszawa, but first, they'll play Cristiano Ronaldo's first professional team, Sporting Club de Portugal.

Fourteen years ago, Ronaldo debuted for Sporting CP, and thanks to the good folks at ESPNFC, we know exactly what CR looked like back then.

Yeah, that's a 17-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo dribbling with the ball at his feet, thinking about all the beautiful women he'd go on to slay.

In case this throwback pic of CR7 isn't enough for you, we've got a few more for you to feast your eyes on.

Remember, kids, it all comes full circle, eventually. I'm sure the emotions will be pretty high for Cristiano Ronaldo when he takes the field against his old club, as Ronaldo has never been one to hold back his emotions on the soccer field.

Ronaldo is currently 31 years old, and while it's unbelievably hard to imagine at the moment, there are those who are speculating Ronaldo could make a return to Sporting Club de Portugal to finish out his career.

Until then, just enjoy the throwback pics and the many more goals still to come.
