Cristiano Ronaldo screams as Al-Nassr qualify for AFC League
Cristiano Ronaldo, a famous footballer who plays as a forward for both Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr and the Portugal national team, is in the spotlight as Al-Nassr qualifies for the AFC Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted screaming into a referee’s face during the AFC Champions League Playoffs last night. He was frustrated because his team Al Nassr fell 1-2 behind after the first half of the match. He expressed frustration after his team was denied multiple penalty opportunities. The footballer also shouted at the camera, saying “wake up” at the officials. Cristiano Ronaldo, who is also a captain of Al Nassr, shoved a man who wanted to click a selfie with him.
However, his team Al Nassr won 4-2 because they managed to score three late goals, including two in stoppage time. Marcelo Brozovic, who plays as a defensive midfielder for Al Nassr, scored in the 97th minute. Cristiano Ronaldo provided a late assist to Marcelo Brozovic.
Sadio Mane, a Senegalese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr, and Anderson Talisca, a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder and forward for Al Nassr, also played well for the team. Anderson Talisca scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al-Nassr FC in January on a two-and-a-half-year contract. Since then, Al Nassr has been signing various international footballers in order to boost its global image. The FC also signed Marcelo Brozovic, Ghislain Konan, and David Ospina. The FC also signed Luís Manuel Ribeiro de Castro as its football manager.
