Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to help Al Nassr win their first Arab Club Champions Cup title on Saturday, defeating fellow Saudi side Al Hilal 2-1 in extra time.
The Portugal captain opened the scoring in the 74th minute, equalizing after Michael had given Al Hilal the lead in the 52nd minute. Ronaldo then scored the winner in the 117th minute, heading in a cross from Sultan Al-Ghannam.
The victory was a major achievement for Al Nassr, who had never won the Arab Club Champions Cup before. It was also a personal triumph for Ronaldo, who had been criticized for his lack of trophies since joining the club from Juventus last year.
Ronaldo’s performance in the final was his best since joining Al Nassr. He was a constant threat to the Al Hilal defense, and he showed that he still has the ability to be a difference-maker at the highest level.
The win is a major boost for Al Nassr and their fans. It shows that the club is capable of competing with the best teams in the region, and it will give them confidence as they look to challenge for more trophies in the future.
