Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portugal captain, scored his first goal for Al Nassr in a 2-2 draw against Al Fateh on Friday. Ronaldo, who moved to Saudi Arabia after his Manchester United contract was terminated, got his first goal for his new club with a late penalty in the 92nd minute. The match took place at Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi Sports City Stadium.
Al Nassr, who lead the Saudi Pro League, came back twice to secure a point in the game. Ronaldo’s spot-kick was the first goal he scored for Al Nassr in his third appearance for the club. Al Fateh, who are in sixth place, were denied a win by Ronaldo’s late penalty.
The 37-year-old forward calmly converted the penalty kick to open his account for Al Nassr. His team-mate Talisca also scored a goal to cancel out Cristian Tello’s opener. However, Talisca was sent off in a dramatic conclusion to the match.
Before joining Al Nassr, Ronaldo scored twice for Riyadh All-Stars in a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain. The match against PSG saw Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe take the field for the French club, and ended in a 5-4 draw.
