What Ronaldo said after 850 Goals
After losing the first two matches, Al Nassr was under significant pressure. It seemed like another season of disappointment awaited Riyadh's club. However, Cristiano Ronaldo's magic has changed the entire scenario. Scoring six goals in just three matches, Ronaldo has rekindled hope among Al Nassr's supporters.
The latest victory came last night against Al Hazm, with Ronaldo contributing to his team's fourth goal. This goal also marked a new milestone for "CR7." It was his 850th career goal. Currently, among those actively playing, only Lionel Messi comes close to Ronaldo's tally with 818 goals.
Ronaldo didn't just score in Al Hazm's match; he also provided assists for two more goals. In the first goal, he left two defenders bewildered with his skills and set up Abdulrahman Ghareeb. The second goal came from a pass by Ronaldo to Abdullah Al Khayari. Then, in the third goal, Ronaldo had the opportunity to shoot himself, but he unselfishly passed the ball to Altuwaijri to score. Al Nassr secured a 5-1 victory against Al Hazm.
With this win, Ronaldo's Al Nassr has climbed to the 6th position in the table with 9 points in 5 matches, closely trailing Al Hilal at the top. The competition between the two Riyadh-based clubs has now become intense.
Ronaldo expressed his thoughts on social media after the match. He said, "Another team performance. We are improving. Let's go, Al Nasr." He then mentioned his milestone, saying, "850th career goal, and more to come."
While Ronaldo celebrates, Firimino and Mahrez's Al Ahli suffered a significant setback on the same night. Facing Al Fateh, Al Ahli suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat. Additionally, Al Ittifaq secured a 3-1 victory, with Musa Dembele scoring a brace. This victory puts Al Ittifaq on par with Al Ahli, making the competition for the top spots more intriguing.
