17th February 2023

FANS have lavished praise onto Cristiano Ronaldo for a sensational assist he got in Al-Nassr's latest fixture.

Ronaldo, 38, celebrated scoring his 61st career hat-trick with a sensational four goals last week.

However, Ronaldo proved he can still spray some incredible passes with his latest assist against Al-Taawoun in the Saudi Pro League.

With the ball in the Al-Nassr defensive half, the ball fell to Ronaldo who had spotted winger Abdulrahman Ghareeb making a run down the left flank.

Ronaldo then launched a first-time pass towards the Saudi Arabia international.

Ghareeb then skipped pass a backpedalling defender before converging down on goal and whipping the ball into the corner past goalkeeper Mailson.

A second wrote: "Insane ball actually."

A third remarked: "That pass was sublime ??."

"What a beautiful pass," said a fourth.


Another commented: "A beauty ??????."

Ronaldo later added his second assist in the game to help secure a 2-1 win, though this came in a far more unconventional style.

The Portugal ace found a pocket of space by the goal as the ball was shot towards it.

He then stuck a leg out to shoot but saw the ball ricochet back off his foot into the path of team-mate Abdullah Madu, who blasted the ball into the roof of the net.
