Cristiano Ronaldo’s time in Saudi Arabia was not going to finish with the phrase “I came, I saw, and I conquered,” as evidenced by his first two competitive games for Al Nasr.
In December of last year, the Portuguese superstar joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nasr after leaving Manchester United. In a friendly matchup against PSG, he made his debut for the organization. Even though his team lost that game 5-4, Ronaldo scored twice.
However, Ronaldo’s debut in Saudi Arabia’s professional football league has not been good. Ronaldo played against Al-Ittifaq in the Saudi Pro League to make his professional football debut.
The former winger for Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Juventus led Al Nasr in that game. Ronaldo did not score, despite the fact that his team won the game. The Saudi Super Cup match was lost by his squad the following day.
In the 3-1 defeat to Al-Ittihad, Ronaldo failed to make an impact. Ronaldo, the captain of Al Nasr, took part the entire game. However, he was unable to generate many scoring opportunities.
Despite having a straightforward opportunity to score in the first half, Ronaldo was unable to do so. Al Nasr was eliminated from the Saudi Super League semifinals as a result of this defeat.
