Cristiano Ronaldo’s Stunning Free-Kick Secures Al Nassr’s Win vs Abha In Saudi Pro League. In an emphatic display, Cristiano Ronaldo propelled his club Al Nassr to a come-from-behind victory with a score-leveling free-kick goal against Abha in a Saudi Pro League match. The stunning free-kick was Ronaldo’s ninth goal overall first for the club Al-Nassr.
With Al-Nassr looking at a stunning defeat at their home ground, Abha’s Abdul Fattah had taken the lead in the first half. But Ronaldo had different plans, scoring one of his trademark free-kick goals in the 78th minute to level the scores at 1-1.
Five minutes later, inspired by Ronaldo’s performance, his teammate Talisca scored, taking Al Nassr 2-1 ahead, a lead that held until the end of the game. The win secured second place for Al Nassr in the points table, just one point behind table-toppers Al-Ittihad.
Ronaldo Back In Portugal’s Line-up For Euro Cup 2024
In the coming days, the Portugal star, Ronaldo, will be leaving his club side, Al Nassr, to join his national team for international duty. Roberto Martinez has included the 38-year-old Ronaldo in his first Portugal squad for the beginning of Euro 2024 qualifying and for their upcoming matches against Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.
During the knockout-phase games of the tournament in Qatar, including the quarterfinal loss to Morocco, Ronaldo was left out of Santos’ starting line-up. However, he will now have the opportunity to add to his international record of 118 goals when Portugal plays European Championship qualifiers against Liechtenstein on March 23 and at Luxembourg three days later.
