Moscow, January 21 – Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo will play his first match with Al-Nassr in the match of the 14th round of the Saudi Arabian Championship against Al-Ettifaq, according to the club’s Twitter page.
The meeting will be held at Al-Nusra Field on Sunday, January 22nd. Ronaldo previously missed two official matches for his new team, but he participated in a friendly match against the French “Paris Saint-Germain” (4: 5) on Thursday. Ronaldo scored two goals.

The Saudi club terminated its contract with Cameroon striker Vincent Abu Bakr, to announce the Portuguese. In addition, Ronaldo was serving a two-match ban imposed by the English Football Association (FA) in November. Al-Nasr announced the signing of a contract with Ronaldo until June 2025 at the end of December.
