Cristiano Ronaldo Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane with a Sensational Long-Range Goal in AFC Champions League Clash with as Al Nassr Al Duhail.
Cristiano Ronaldo Delivers a Vintage Show with Two Sensational Goals, Leading Al Nassr to a Thrilling 4-3 Victory Against Al Duhail in the AFC Champions League. In the top-tier Asian club competition, Al Nassr, featuring former Liverpool striker Sadio Mane and Anderson Talisca, clinched their third consecutive group stage win.
The scoring action ignited in Riyadh as Talisca struck from the edge of the box in the 25th minute, with Ronaldo, even at 38, showcasing a dazzling display of skill, setting up the goal with a clever back-heeled flick.
Yet, it was his second goal that set social media ablaze, as Ronaldo executed an incredible curler with his non-dominant foot, securing Al Nassr’s fourth goal against Al Duhail. With just nine minutes left on the clock, Ronaldo appeared to have the last say, as he sprinted to meet a long pass from Sultan Al Ghannam and unleashed a remarkable volley with his left foot while maintaining his full stride.
The goal bore a striking resemblance to Ronaldo’s iconic strike against Everton, where he unleashed a similar curler with his left foot, notching his 15th goal during his 2007/08 season with Manchester United. While Ronaldo had made a highly anticipated return to United for a second spell in 2021, he departed from the club the previous year, citing disagreements with manager Erik ten Hag.

Ronaldo, a pivotal figure since his arrival at Al Nassr, celebrated his inaugural trophy with the team in the Arab Club Champions Cup earlier this year. His move to Saudi Arabia not only raised the profile of the Saudi Pro League but also triggered a significant influx of renowned players such as Neymar, Karim Benzema, and Sadio Mane.
Al Duhail manager Christophe Galtier, who led Paris Saint-Germain last season, acknowledged the formidable challenge of facing Ronaldo, stating that there are limited options when dealing with his prowess.
“He scored two beautiful goals. I’m at a loss for words to describe him. What he did today is extraordinary for a 38-year-old. He’s still the best player in the world.”
In the absence of their injured superstar Neymar, Riyadh’s Al Hilal showcased their dominance by cruising to a resounding 6-0 victory over India’s Mumbai City, with former Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic contributing two goals to their emphatic win.
