LOOK. Ronaldo again decisive with goal and assist
Cristiano Ronaldo also continues to break records in Saudi Arabia. The 38-year-old Portuguese was in the starting line-up for Al Nassr on the field of Al Khaleej. Just before the half hour mark he got the ball on the edge of the penalty area. Ronaldo turned on his axis, sent his closest attacker in the wrong direction with a feint and finally hit the ball perfectly in the corner. Great goal. With an appropriate celebration. That Al-Awwal Park is his playground. The statistics also confirm this. It was Ronaldo’s twelfth league goal this season, making him top scorer ahead of ex-Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who now plays for Al Hilal.
But an even better statistic is that this goal is Ronaldo’s 400th goal since he turned thirty. In three months he will be 39. Or how the machine keeps turning. Although he is approaching the age of forty, Ronaldo continues to do everything he can to stay fit. His body still trained to perfection.
What is also striking: the pleasure with which Ronaldo is on the field. Before the match, the smile towards the family could not have been wider. After the victory he celebrated heavily with the home fans. Someone is having a great time in Saudi Arabia.
