At last, Ronaldo nets first Al-Nassr goal in Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo left it late, but he is finally off the mark for Al-Nassr after his injury-time penalty earned his side a draw.

The 37-year-old lined up for his new team for the third time on Friday as they looked to bounce back from the defeat they suffered last time out. Ronaldo had arrived in Saudi Arabia with the expectation he would dominate a significantly weaker league.

But after drawing blanks against both Ettifaq and Al-Ittihad, there was some extra pressure for the clash with Al-Fateh. And that extra scrutiny looked to be weighing on the veteran striker, who for the first time since his move, showed real frustration on the pitch.

Ronaldo was constantly criticised for his body language during his time with Manchester United, often making his grievances very public. But since leaving Old Trafford and the glare of European football, the Portuguese has looked a much calmer individual.
