Al Nassr defeats Al Feiha as Cristiano Ronaldo unveils new celebration!

The AFC Champions League had an electric return to life on Tuesday as legend Cristiano Ronaldo scored and unveiled a new celebration after his goal helped Al Nassr defeat Al Feiha 1-0. 

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to football after injury wasn’t pleasant, as Al Nassr lost to Al Hilal in the Riyadh Cup amidst controversy. However, with the return of the AFC Champions League, Mr. Champions League was back in form. His lone goal clinched victory for Al Nassr. The round of 16 first-leg tie saw Al Nassr visit Al Feiha where an extremely hostile audience greeted them.

However, the hostile crowd didn’t deter Cristiano, who was a man on a mission. After initial struggles to control the game, Al Nassr dominated the game creating several chances. Cristiano Ronaldo came close to scoring many times, but the goal eluded him. In the second half, things changed.

Ronaldo was on the edge of the opposition’s box as Marcelo Brozovic played an accurate pass into him. Despite being marked heavily, Cristiano managed to engage in a wonderful one-two combination with Brozovic. Ronaldo turned to rush into the box to receive Brozovic’s second pass. In the box, a skillful touch from Cristiano helped the ball into the back of the helpless Al Feiha goalkeeper. A move crafted by the sheer brilliance of the ex-Real Madrid man.
