Cristiano Ronaldo scores stunning long-range goal for Al Nassr vs Al Akhdoud

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning long-range goal during Al Nassr’s clash against Al Akhdoud.

On Friday evening, Ronaldo’s Al Nassr were in Saudi Professional League action against Al Akhdoud.

Heading into the match, Al Nassr were in second place, four points behind leaders Al Hilal.

Al Nassr took the lead in the 13th minute thanks to Sami Al Naji, before Ronaldo made it 2-0 in the 77th minute.

Just three minutes after his first goal, Ronaldo made it 3-0 in spectacular fashion after the ball dropped to his feet about 30 yards from goal.

With the goalkeeper rushing to close him down, Ronaldo showed tremendous technique to control a lob that went into the back of the net. You can watch his goal below.

After scoring a brace on Friday evening, Ronaldo now has 18 goals and nine assists in 18 appearances across all competitions for Al Nassr.

Al Nassr held on for a 3-0 win and closed the gap between themselves and Al Hilal to just one point.

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Ronaldo’s Al Nassr could face Inter Miami in a friendly match in February 2024, which will see the Portuguese take on his long-term rival Lionel Messi again.

However, to many football fans’ disappointment, Inter Miami has denied the report.

A statement from the MLS club read: “Earlier today, an announcement was issued stating that Inter Miami CF is scheduled to play in the Riyadh Season Cup. This is inaccurate.

“The release included statements attributed to team owner Jorge Mas. Mas has made no comments, publicly or privately, in relation to the pre-season tour.”

It continued: “Since day one, Inter Miami CF has set out to be a global brand. To this end, we have been in conversations to determine our 2024 preseason schedule.

“We look forward to showcasing our players on Inter Miami CF’s first international tour which will be announced in the coming weeks.”
