Brazil's iconic football sensation, Neymar, achieved a significant milestone in his career by making his debut in the Saudi Pro League for Al-Hilal. This highly anticipated moment occurred during a match against Al-Riyadh, where Neymar, the all-time leading goal scorer for Brazil, showcased his skills. 

Neymar, at the age of 31, had recently completed a staggering 90 million euros ($95.9 million) transfer from Paris Saint-Germain to Al-Hilal, the former Asian champions. His debut came in the 64th minute of the match when he substituted for his Brazilian compatriot, Michael. In a display of his remarkable talent, Neymar assisted in setting up Malcom's goal for Al-Hilal in the 83rd minute, contributing to their impressive 6-1 victory over Al-Riyadh.

The game began with Aleksandar Mitrovic securing the lead for Al-Hilal with a well-taken penalty in the 30th minute. This advantage was further solidified by goals from Yassir Al-Shahrani and Nasser Al-Dawsari, establishing Al-Hilal as the dominant force in the match.

Neymar's debut for Al-Hilal had been highly anticipated by fans, especially after he broke Pele's record as Brazil's leading scorer in the previous week's 5-1 triumph over Bolivia. Unfortunately, an ankle injury had kept him sidelined since his move to Saudi Arabia.

In an intriguing turn of events, fans expressed their disappointment when Al-Hilal's captain, Salem Al-Dawsari, decided to take an 87th-minute penalty instead of Neymar. Despite this, the Saudi Arabia winger successfully converted the penalty and added another goal during injury time, sealing a comprehensive 6-1 victory for Al-Hilal.

Neymar's presence in the Saudi Pro League marked an exciting chapter in his career, and his debut performance left fans eagerly anticipating his future contributions to Al-Hilal's success.
