Ronaldo's Al-Nassr debut vs Al-Ettifaq: Date, time, venue, tickets, where to watch in India and more
Legendary striker Cristiano Ronaldo is all set to debut for new team Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League clash against Al-Ettifaq, three days after the Portuguese talisman faced arch-rival Lionel Messi and PSG in the Riyadh Season Cup friendly clash.
Legendary striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who signed for Al-Nassr last month, will debut for his new team in the Saudi Pro League against Al-Ettifaq on Sunday at Riyadh's Mrsool Park. Fans have waited for three weeks to see the Portuguese talisman wear the yellow and blue jersey after the former Manchester United star served a pending two-match FA ban for the infamous incident at Everton last season.
Ronaldo's debut for Al-Nassr comes just three days after the 37-year-old legend faced arch-rival Lionel Messi as he led Riyadh Season Team XI against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for a friendly clash. The French champions beat the combined XI of Al-Nassr, and Al-Hilal stars 5-4, and lifted the Riyadh Season Cup after a night that saw a brace from Ronaldo moments after an opening goal from Messi within three minutes.
During the Ronaldo vs Messi clash, the Portugal international was left bruised after the PSG goalkeeper unintentionally landed his glove on the player's left cheek. However, photos and videos of the 37-year-old striker training for his Al-Nassr debut show that the icon is pumped to lead the team's attack along with Talisca.
