Cristiano Ronaldo had a reason to celebrate as he scored his 850th career goal while playing for Al Nassr, who secured a 5-1 victory against Al-Hazm in the Saudi Pro League on Saturday.
In his recent three games, Ronaldo has scored six goals and provided two assists, contributing to Al Nassr’s third consecutive league win. Sadio Mane also made it to the scoresheet.
Ronaldo expressed his joy on social media, saying, “Another impressive team performance! We are continuously getting better. Let’s go @AlNassrFC… I’ve reached 850 career goals, and I’m still adding to that tally at the age of 38!”
After a shaky start with two losses in the beginning of the season, Al Nassr, last year’s runners-up, have bounced back impressively by scoring 14 goals in their last three games. They are now only four points behind the league leaders, Al-Hilal.
Furthermore, Ronaldo is currently leading the league in scoring this season with six goals, surpassing former Liverpool forward Mane by a single goal.
