Ronaldo wins first trophy with Al-Nassr



Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has clinched his first trophy since arriving Saudi Arabia from Europe.

Ronaldo helped Al-Nassr win their first Arab Club Champions Cup title despite finishing with nine men after extra time.

The 38-year-old played a key role as his team came from behind to beat fellow Saudi side Al-Hilal 2-1 in the final on Saturday.

Ronaldo cancelled out Michael’s opener before Abdulelah Al-Amri and Nawaf Boushal were sent off for Al-Nassr.

But Ronaldo, who finished the tournament as the highest goal scorer with six goals, scored again in the first half of extra time to seal his first trophy since his lucrative move last December.

However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was carted off with five minutes left following a collision. His team’s Saudi league campaign begins in two days.
