Ronaldo to make Al Nassr debut with the match vs Ettifaq FC
Cristiano Ronaldo was expected to make his SPL debut on January 6 but he missed the last two league games due to a 2-match ban imposed by FA. But now the ban is over and the 37-year-old footballer is free to play. Portugal star made a mark in the Arab country by scoring two goals in 45 minutes against Messi’s Paris Saint Germain.
Ronaldo was subbed off by Riyadh All-Star after half time owing to his commitment with Al Nassr two days later. The absence of CR7 in the second half probably made Riyadh side look weak and in the end, the scorecard read Riyadh – 4, Paris – 5.
