Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo nets landmark career goal in Al-Nassr rout


Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, on Saturday, etched his name ever further into the history books of world football.

This comes on the back of the Portuguese’s endeavours during Al-Nassr’s Saudi Pro League meeting with Al-Hazm.

In the midst of a scintillating stretch of recent form, which had seen them rack up nine goals whilst conceding none across the club’s last two league outings, Al-Nassr marked their return to action a short time ago.

The aforementioned Ronaldo, for his part, found the net once, amid a stellar individual display which also saw the veteran Portuguese bag a pair of assists.
