…..Cristiano Ronaldo has found his shooting boots in Saudi Arabia now for Al-Nassr. Cristiano Ronaldo scores four in huge Al Nassr win. Ronaldo has scored FOUR goals in just his third appearance for the Saudi Arabia club during their match against Al-Wehda on Thursday, passing 500 career league goals on the way.
The 38-year-old scored his 61st career hat trick and now has 501 league goals to his name.
The Portuguese superstar was made to wait for his Al-Nassr debut after serving a two-match suspension from his time at Manchester United.
The former Real Madrid, Juventus and Sporting CP forward joined Al Nassr at the end of December after his contract with Manchester United was terminated by mutual consent. He signed a contract through to the summer of 2025 according to reports.
He opened the scoring in the 21st minute of the game and then scored another in the 40th minute.
Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr’s in a record deal of 200 million euros per year, completed his 61st career hat-trick in the 53rd minute of the game when he converted the spot kick. Ronaldo’s final goal of the match came in the 61st minute.
His official debut came against Ettifaq FC at the end of January, but the 38-year-old was unable to get on the scoresheet then.
Ronaldo thought he had broken his short barren run in the very next game against Al-Fateh, only to have it chalked out for offside.
He did find the net in stoppage time of that game from the penalty spot for his first official Al-Nassr goal to help his new side clinch a point.
And that has clearly helped Ronaldo find his shooting boots in the Saudi Pro League as he found the net four times against Al-Wehda.
With this victory, Al Nassr move back to the top of the league standings after 16 games, level on 37 points with second-placed Al Shabab.
