Video: Cristiano Ronaldo scores his first goal for Al-Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo finally found the back of the net for Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League, scoring a penalty kick in the 93rd minute to secure a 2-2 draw against Al Fateh on Friday.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner had been scoreless in his first two appearances for his new club, but he finally got the chance to open his account in the Middle East.
Trailing 2-1, Al Nassr was awarded a penalty at the end of the match, which Ronaldo confidently converted to keep Al Nassr at the top of the league, level on points with Al Shabab.
The tight race for the top spot continues, with just four points separating the top five teams.
Ronaldo signed with Al Nassr after his contract with Manchester United was mutually terminated in November.
Despite offers from Brazil and rumors of a transfer to Sporting Kansas City, he chose to sign with Al Nassr on an astronomical contract, making him the highest-paid athlete in the world.
European giants such as Bayern Munich and Chelsea opted not to pursue him despite his desire to play in the Champions League.
