3. Sami Al-Najei


Sami Al-Najei is a 25-year-old Saudi Arabian international who plays as a midfielder for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League. He has been in incredible form so far this season. Sami has made 13 appearances for his club this season, scoring two goals and providing three assists. In fact, he is by far Al Nassr’s best assist provider this season as far as the stats are concerned. 

Speaking about his career, Sami Al-Najei is an Al-Nassr product. At the age of 18, he made his debut for Al Nassr’s U-23 team in 2015. He has played at certain other clubs too on loan transfers but Al-Nassr has been his Alma mater throughout. It is thus very good to see that he is turning out to be one of their best midfielders now. 

We expect that Sami Al-Najei will link up well with Cristiano Ronaldo and we will see him assisting him very frequently.

Brazilian forward Talisca is one such player who has wreaked absolute havoc in the Saudi Pro League with his impeccable goal scoring abilities. Talisca joined Al Nassr in July 2021 and within 1.5 years, he has turned out to be their most important player. He has already scored 11 goals in 11 matches in the Saudi Pro League this year and he is the top scorer in the league at this point. 

He made his debut at the Brazilian club EC Bahia B and has experience playing at big clubs like Benfica and Besiktas. However, it was at GZ Ever Grande that he made a name for himself.

After Vincent Aboubakar was chalked off of the team to make room for Cristiano Ronaldo, David Ospina is the only big name left in the Al Nassr squad after Cristiano himself. David Ospina was one of the best goalkeepers in Europe back in his days at Napoli and Arsenal. However, he is 34 now and is thus playing in the Saudi Pro League. 

Currently, an Elbow injury is keeping him away from the pitch. However, he is expected to return from injury next month and he will team up with Cristiano Ronaldo after that.
