WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo’s crazy move stuns defender, brings back memories of Manchester United days

FeaturedSports NewsWATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo's crazy move stuns defender, brings back memories of Manchester United days

Making his Al Nasr debut on Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo was in vintage form as his side cruised to a 1-0 win against Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League at the King Saud University Stadium. The Portugal captain failed to score but Talisca’s 31st-minute goal proved enough for Al-Nasr, who moved to the top of the table. The midfielder headed home the winner in the 31st minute after Abdulmajid Al Sulaihim’s cross was too high for Ronaldo.

Receiving rave reviews for his scintillating display, Ronaldo will be hoping to score early in the Arab country. Ronaldo recently joined Al Nasr for a sensational 2-1/2-year deal, worth more than €200 million. He saw his Manchester United spell end after a controversial interview with British broadcaster Piers Morgan, where he criticized the club’s hierarchy and head coach Erik ten Hague.

A fan shared a video of Ronaldo’s crazy move during his Al Nassr debut, where he completely stunned the defender with an epic trick. It is worth noting that Ronaldo did this trick during his younger Manchester United days and also in a friendly match between the club and Sporting CP, which led to his signing. Here is the video:

Reacting to the video, one fan wrote, “She’s definitely on another level.”

“My fiction”, replied the other.

Al Nasr currently top the league table with 33 points from 14 matches, ahead of Al Hilal, who have 32 points from 15 matches. Fans of the club had to wait three weeks for Ronaldo to make his debut after the transfer was announced and it was held with great fanfare. Ronaldo earlier scored a brace in a 5-4 defeat against PSG, where he represented a joint Saudi All-Star XI made up of Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal players in an exhibition match.

Ronaldo had a disappointing World Cup last year, where Portugal crashed out in the quarter-finals and he also appeared off the bench for that match and the Round of 16 fixture. The striker managed to score just one goal during the group stage and was also part of his team in the final group defeat against South Korea.
