In 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo, the 38-year-old football star from Portugal, is showing everyone he’s still great at scoring goals in the Saudi Pro League with Al Nassr.
In a recent game against Al Ettifaq in Riyadh, Ronaldo scored his 51st goal of the year, making it 17 goals in the SPL and a total of 870 goals in his career.
He scored from a penalty, kicking the ball into the net’s bottom left corner. Even though Al Ettifaq’s goalkeeper, Paulo Victor, guessed the right direction, he couldn’t stop the powerful shot.
Sadio Mane set up the penalty by making a great play and Abdulrahman Yousef accidentally blocked a cross with his hand, leading to the penalty.
Al Nassr won the game 3-1, showing how much Ronaldo helps the team. In the race for the most goals in 2023, Ronaldo is very close to England’s Harry Kane and France’s Kylian Mbappe, who both have 52 goals.
Harry Kane, now playing for Bayern Munich, and Mbappe are strong competitors for the top goal-scorer title. In third place is Manchester City’s Erling Haaland with 50 goals.
Ronaldo’s great playing, even though he’s in his late 30s, proves how skilled he is. His contributions to Al Nassr show he can make a big difference wherever he plays. People around the world are excited to see who will score the most goals in the ongoing season.
