Highlights: Cristiano Ronaldo’s competitive debut as Al-Nassr climb back to top of Saudi Pro League


Footage of Cristiano Ronaldo’s individual highlights across his official Al-Nassr debut has come to the fore late on Sunday evening.

For those not aware, legendary attacker Ronaldo was afforded his first appearance in a competitive fixture for his new club a short time ago.

After opting to take his talents to Saudi Arabia late last month on the back of the termination of his contract at Manchester United, fans of Al-Nassr were provided with a first glimpse of the 37-year-old in his new home in a friendly meeting with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week.

On Sunday, though, Ronaldo’s stint in Asia was truly kicked into gear.

This came as the Portuguese was handed his first start in a competitive setting, in Al-Nassr’s Saudi Pro League meeting with Ettifaq.

And, when all was said and done in Riyadh, CR7 went on to enjoy a winning start to life.

This came as a solitary goal on the part of former Benfica and Besiktas star Anderson Talisca proved enough to guide Al-Nassr to the right side of a 1-0 result.

Despite failing to find the net, Ronaldo, for his part, was heavily involved over the course of the 90 minutes, with highlights of some of his best moments showcased in the video below:
