In a great atmosphere thanks to the 22,862 fans motivated by the debut of their idol, CR7 was very involved on all fronts of the attack, multiplying the calls to score, to no avail.
A few days after his double against PSG during a gala friendly (5-4 defeat), the Portuguese star, made captain of Al-Nassr by French coach Rudi García, was important in the match.
The goal came thanks to a collective action: Al Sulaiheem crossed and found CR7, who raised the ball but it was the Brazilian Anderson Talisca, better positioned, who finally sent the ball into the back of the net (31).
Five minutes later, the five-time Ballon d’Or player tried to score from a free kick but his shot missed.
His best chance was a powerful shot that Brazilian goalkeeper Paulo Victor (78) managed to save.
The Saudi public greeted the star with a banner in the stands at Mrsool Park proclaiming “We wish you the best, but you are already the best.”
With this victory, Al Nassr leads the championship with 33 points, one ahead of its rival Al Hilal.
