    Sensational free kick from Ronaldo puts Al-Nassr in front

    Not content to only wind back the years with a few flicks here and there, though, Ronaldo then took things a step further in Al-Nassr’s latest game against Damac when he fired in a stunning free kick. With Al-Taawoun and Al-Hilal ahead of them in the table, three points were essential as they looked to keep up with the top two sides.

    Things initially took a turn for the worse at the end of the first half, though. Georges-Kévin N’Koudou gave the visitors the lead in the 47th minute, much to the frustration of the hosts.
    They were not behind for long, however. Seven minutes after the restart, Ronaldo and Anderson Talisca stood over a free kick just outside the Damac penalty area. It seemed as if the Portuguese forward would be the one to take it, but it was the latter who stepped up for Al-Nassr on this occasion, bending an effort around the wall and into the bottom corner of the goal.

    Eager not to be upstaged by his teammate, though, Ronaldo stepped up four minutes later with a brilliant set-piece of his own. Standing over the ball a little further out and in a more central position, the striker sent an effort over the wall, with the goalkeeper rooted to the spot and powerless to stop it.

    It’s an absolutely brilliant strike and one that we have seen from him on countless occasions for United, Madrid, and Portugal too. You can watch the goal for yourselves below.
    That goal was ultimately decisive. Victory for Al-Nassr puts them on 22 points and third in the table, four points behind Al-Hilal who top the division. Ronaldo is next in action against Al-Duhail in the AFC Champions League, before then facing Al-Fayha in the league four days later.
