Ronaldo Returns in Al Nassr Friendly Loss


Cristiano Ronaldo made his return from injury as he started in Al Nassr’s friendly match against Al Hilal on Thursday. The Portugal forward had been sidelined with a muscle problem, which had led to the postponement of Al Nassr’s pre-season tour of China the previous month.

Despite missing his team’s 6-0 victory against Inter Miami on February 1, a match that would have seen him face off against Lionel Messi, Ronaldo was back in action for the Riyadh Season Cup exhibition final. However, his efforts couldn’t prevent Al Hilal from securing a 2-0 win, with goals coming from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Al-Dawsari.

Ronaldo, who celebrated his 39th birthday on Monday, had resumed training with his team earlier in the week and was named captain for the friendly clash at the Kingdom Arena. This marked his first appearance for Al Nassr since their 4-1 league triumph over Al Taawon on December 30.

Despite Ronaldo’s return, Al Nassr finds themselves in second place in the Saudi Pro League standings, trailing leaders Al Hilal by seven points after 19 games.

In summary, Cristiano Ronaldo’s comeback from injury saw him feature in Al Nassr’s friendly against Al Hilal, but his efforts couldn’t prevent his team from suffering a 2-0 defeat. The Portugal forward, who recently turned 39, had been sidelined with a muscle problem, which had disrupted his team’s pre-season preparations. However, his return marks a positive development for Al Nassr as they look to challenge for the Saudi Pro League title.
