Cristiano Ronaldo provides stunning assist during Al Nassr vs Al Taawoun, his vision is unreal

Cristiano Ronaldo provided a stunning assist during Al Nassr’s Saudi Professional League clash against Al Taawoun.

Ever since the five-time Ballon d’Or winner announced his move to the Middle East after his second stint with Manchester United ended bitterly, the attention towards football in Saudi Arabia has grown massively.

On Friday, Ronaldo captained Al Nassr as they took on fifth-placed side Al Taawoun.



With just 17 minutes on the clock, Ronaldo showcased his immense talent as he played a spectacular defence-splitting pass for Abdulrahman Abdullah Ghareeb to score the game’s opening goal.

Many thought Ronaldo will not be the same player as he was a few years ago after his move to Saudi Arabia but he has reminded everyone what he is still capable of.

Fans were quick to react to Ronaldo’s stunning assist.

One said: “Best pass of his career to be fair. Class assist.”


Another tweeted: “The best playmaker of all time when he wants to be.”

A third fan added: “Ronaldo is cooking that league.”

Someone else commented: “Is this not De Bruyne??”

Whilst a fifth person wrote: “When did Messi had an assist like that last time? Ronaldo is better in every way possible. The Goat.”


Just last week, Ronaldo moved past the 500 career league goal mark after scoring four goals as Al Nassr beat Al Wehda 4-0.

His manager, Rudi Garcia told reporters: “Ronaldo has reached a great stage of homogeneity and harmony with his teammates.

“Over time, his team-mates realised what he wanted and when he will score. I think it was a good night for Cristiano Ronaldo because he scored four goals.”


The Portugal legend now has 503 league goals to his name after scoring for five different clubs in five different leagues.

Ronaldo scored three goals for Sporting Lisbon, 103 over two seasons at United, 311 for Real Madrid, 81 for Serie A giants Juventus plus the five goals he currently has scored for Al Nassr.

Is Ronaldo the GOAT? Let us know in the comments.
