38-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo inspires Al Nassr to first-ever Arab Cup glory


38-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo led Al Nassr to their first ever Arab Club title on Saturday, inspiring the Saudi side to a brilliant come-from-behind victory over Al Hilal.

Al Hilal led 1-0 in the 51st minute but Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr in January, leveled matters in the 74th minute. Both sides held on to send the match to extra time. And Ronaldo, just as he has always done all through his illustrious career, came clutch in the 98th minute to head in what proved to be the winner for Al Nassr.

It’s a 35th career trophy for Ronaldo, who also claimed the tournament’s golden boot.

The Portuguese legend finished as the tournament’s highest goal scorer, becoming the first Al Nassr player in history to achieve the milestone.
