Cristiano Ronaldo debuted a win for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League despite failing to score. The Portuguese forward wore the captain’s armband and played the entire game against Al-Ettifaq. This was ‘CR7”s second appearance in Saudi Arabia after the match against Paris Saint Germain in which he was part of the combined team with André Carrillos Al-Hilal. The Portuguese trained with ‘Culebra’ but couldn’t play with him on the pitch; However, there is a possibility that the attacker could now meet a soccer player from the Peru team.

According to the journalist Tati Civiallo Juan Román Riquelme, vice president of the Xeneize team at TyC Sports, has in mind a friendly duel between the “Commander” club and the blue and gold team. That plan would gain strength after an agreement was reached between Boca and the Saudi squad on goalkeeper Agustín Rossi.
“There is an idea… Through this (Rossi’s signature) a bridge was built. Román would like to play a double friendly with Al-Nassr. Play there (in Riyadh) and have them come to La Bombonera so Cristiano Ronaldo can play on Boca’s pitch. It has to do with trade deals,” the Argentine communicator said.
