Al Nassr Vs Al Etiffaq

BREAKING: Cristiano #Ronaldo Fires Blank On Al Nassr Vs Al Etiffaq Debut—The 5-Time Ballon D’Or Winner, Cristiano Ronaldo Popularly known as CR7 failed to score on his Al-Nassr official debut on Sunday evening as his team win 1-0 against Al-Ettifaq.

Despite playing 90 minutes, he failed to score in what will come as a surprise to football fans around the world.

Given his pedigree and phenomenal goalscoring record throughout his illustrious career, Ronaldo has been tipped to rip up Saudi Arabian football.

He has also signed for the best team in the country with Rudi Garcia’s side currently top of the league by one point with a game in hand also under the belt

Ronaldo was joined in attack by ex-Benfica and Besiktas ace Anderson Talisca and Argentine forward Gonzalo Nicolas Martinez.

It was Talisca who netted the all-important winner for Al-Nassr when he was on target in the 31st minute with a bullet header.

Funnily enough, the cross had just evaded Ronaldo’s monstrous leap as he attacked the ball at full throttle.

Despite a lack of goals, Ronaldo’s Saudi journey started on a positive note with a precious victory – the 751st of his professional career.

There was one brief moment that showed CR7 really does still have it as he dropped a defender to the turf.

Attacking his marker, Ronaldo checked back and faked to cross as his helpless opponent collapsed to his knees.

Ronaldo then shanked the shot into the side netting but it was a moment that certainly got the home fans off of their seats.

He was also donning the captain’s armband and the No 7 shirt – something that was also the case during Ronaldo’s United farewell in the 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in November.

Although Ronaldo was unable to play a decisive role, he looked happy alongside his team-mates and there were plenty of positive signs that he will be a success in Saudi Arabia.
