Cristiano Ronaldo has finally scored his first goal for Al Nassr during the Friday evening clash against Al Fateh at the Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi Sports City Stadium in Al Hasa. In stoppage time, Ronaldo equalised for his team, ensuring a crucial point.
Ronaldo’s first goal for his new team came from the penalty spot. With Al Nassr heading towards defeat, a poor challenge from an Al Fateh player gave them a lifeline and earned them a penalty. Ronaldo made no mistake from the six-yard spot and calmly put the ball in the back of the net to open his tally in Saudi Arabia.
he match ended in a 2-2 draw after Al Nassr came back from a goal down twice in the game. Al Fateh took the lead once in each of the first and second halves. Talisca had scored the first-half equaliser for Al Nassr, but he was sent off minutes after Ronald’s second goal. Talisca is Al Nassr’ top goal-scorer this season with a total of 13 goals to his name.
Ronaldo had a frustrating first half in search of his first goal. He missed two glorious chances over the course of the 45 minutes. On one occasion, Ronaldo had an open goal in front of him but somehow managed to sky the ball over the bar, much to the surprise of anyone. A few minutes later, Ronaldo’s teammate set him up in a glorious position inside the box, but the Portuguese hit the bar.
