Ronaldo hands team mate winning penalty as gesture of respect

As Al-Nassr came from behind to beat Abha 2-1 in the Saudi Pro League on Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning long-range free kick but delegated the task of converting the winning penalty to a teammate as a show of respect.

The Portuguese forward, who has now scored nine goals in his first season in Saudi Arabia, passed the ball to injured Brazilian Anderson Talisca.

Talisca converted the 86th minute spot kick for his 14th goal of the season and celebrated with Ronaldo as Al-Nassr kept up the pressure on Al-Ittihad, who led the league by 1 point with 9 games remaining.

This is mutual respect and we are one team and we act like a family.” Talisca said to the Saudi Sports Company (SSC) TV through an interpreter.

“We all cooperate and the most important thing is the team. In the end, it’s all for the benefit of the club. Whether it is me or any other player, the important thing is to score.

It is certainly something special.” adds Ronaldo. Ronaldo’s 78th– minute goal was his first at Al-Nasr’s Marsool Park stadium since his move to Saudi Arabia on a big money 2 1/2 year deal.

The 38-year-old will link up with the Portugal squad for the international break before returning to lead Al-Nassr’s bid to win the league title for the first time since 2019.
