Ronaldo's 850th Goal Sparks Al Nassr's Saudi Pro League Comeback
Cristiano Ronaldo achieved a remarkable milestone, celebrating his 850th career goal, during Al Nassr's triumphant 5-1 victory against Al-Hazm in the Saudi Pro League on a Saturday.
Ronaldo showcased his exceptional scoring prowess by netting his sixth goal in the last three matches, further contributing with two assists to secure Al Nassr's third consecutive league win. Sadio Mane, another prominent figure in football, also added his name to the scoresheet.
Displaying his elation, the 38-year-old Ronaldo took to social media to commend his team's outstanding performance, stating, "Another great team performance! We keep improving. Let’s go @AlNassrFC... 850 career goals and still counting!”
Notably, Al Nassr experienced a challenging start to the season with two initial league losses. However, they have made an impressive comeback, particularly in their recent games, where they amassed a staggering 14 goals. As a result, they are now positioned just four points behind the league leaders, Al-Hilal.
In the current season, Ronaldo has assumed the role of the league's top scorer, tallying six goals, edging ahead of the former Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane, by one goal. This remarkable feat demonstrates Ronaldo's enduring excellence on the football field, further solidifying his status as one of the sport's greatest icons.
