Roda JC striker Cristiano took a huge step towards a return to first team action, making a long-awaited appearance in a reserve game.
The Brazilian has been out for over six months with a knee injury, after the club decided he should have an operation to clear up the long-standing problem.
Roda initially expected to lose their marksman until the new year, but the player has shown fantastic powers of recovery.
Cristiano featured in 30 minutes of the fixture against Rijnsburgse Boys, and he failed to cap his comeback with a goal.
However, the dutch club will be ecstatic to see that the 24-year-old could return to the first team within the next month.
