Cristiano Ronaldo opened his Saudi Pro League scoring account on Friday when he scored a penalty in the 93rd minute to earn Al Nassr a 2-2 draw vs. Al Fateh.
We’re not sure how many goals CR7 is going to score in Saudi Arabia, but this could be the first of many.

The internet is celebrating his first Al Nassr goal, however it’s worth bringing up that he could’ve, maybe should’ve, had a hat trick. Ronaldo wasted two big scoring opportunities that he will want back.

We’re also going to take this time to highlight Al Fateh’s second goal. In the 58th minute Algerian forward Sofiane Bendebka scored an amazing volley to give his side a 2-1 lead.

If Ronaldo had scored this goal, then the internet would be talking about it for the rest of February.
We see you, Bendebka.
Ronaldo and Al Nassr still sit top of the Saudi Pro League tied on 34 points with Al-Shabab but with a game in hand.
