Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo nets brilliant long-range free-kick for Al-Nassr


Footage of five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo finding the net in spectacular fashion has come to the fore late on Saturday evening.

For those not aware, Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr were back in action a short time ago.

After being ousted from their spot atop the Roshn Saudi League by Al-Ittihad last weekend, Rudi Garcia’s troops welcomed Abha to Marsool Park, desperate to keep pace with their title rivals.

And, when all was said and done on Saturday evening, this is precisely what Al-Nassr managed.

This came by way of a comeback victory, kicked into gear courtesy of a moment of brilliance on the part of the aforementioned Cristiano Ronaldo.

After Al-Nassr loanee Abdulfattah Adam netted against his parent club to give Abha the lead midway through the first-half, the visitors managed to hold onto their advantage until a little over ten minutes from time.

From here, though, Al-Nassr levelled things up, when Ronaldo drove a free-kick from a full 30 yards out beyond the wall and into the bottom corner:

This, in turn, set the stage for attacking partner in crime Talisca to bag a decisive winner for Al-Nassr with a full 86 minutes on the clock:
