Cristiano Ronaldo scores two goals as Al Nassr win Arab Club Champions Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a crucial brace as Al Nassr beat Al Hilal in the Arab Club Champions Cup final on Saturday.

Ronaldo has his first piece of silverware with Al Nassr following his blockbuster move from Manchester United.

His side beat Al Hilal 2-1 in the final of the Arab Club Champions Cup at the King Fahd Stadium.

Al Nassr went behind when Brazil midfielder Michael opened the scoring six minutes after the break. He hit the 'SIU' celebration against Ronaldo in a ruthless moment.

But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner hit back as he smashed home in the 74th minute to level proceedings and to send the game into extra-time.

The Real Madrid legend then put Al Nassr in the lead after heading home in the 98th minute.

His heroics are even more impressive considering he was playing with 9 men after Abdulelah Al-Amri and Nawaf Boushal were sent off.

The 38-year-old is no stranger to delivering on the biggest stage as he helped his side win the Arab Club Champions Cup.

It's the latest trophy in the superstar forward's cabinet, having won league titles in England, Spain and Italy not to mention the Champions League.
