Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty kick (PK) debut goal did not soothe the hearts of Al Nasr fans.
Al Nasr drew 2-2 with Al Fateh in the 15th round of the Saudi Professional League in the 2022-23 season held at the Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi Stadium in Al Ahsa, Saudi Arabia at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 4th. Al Nasr maintained an uneasy first place with 34 points (10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss). 먹튀검증
Ronaldo’s debut goal finally came. Ronaldo, who started again on this day, took a lively move in the front line as if to make up for his sluggishness in the last two matches. However, he remained silent until the end of the game, still unable to resolve the goal decision problem exposed at Manchester United this season, such as his left-footed shot hitting the crossbar.
Fortunately, the opportunity came. In the 45th minute of the second half, Jaroladin Masaripov was knocked down by the Al Fateh defense in a scuffle in the penalty box, and the referee declared a PK without delay. Ronaldo tricked the goalkeeper and scored his first Saudi league goal with a powerful shot down the center.
Ronaldo congratulated himself on his goal after the match. Ronaldo said on his social media account: “I am delighted that the whole team worked hard for the first goal in the Saudi league and an important draw in a very difficult game.” .
But it was a game that should have been won. Al Nasr is a team contending for the lead, while Al Fateh is an upper-middle-tier team, sitting in 6th place in the league. It means that it was an opponent that must be defeated in order to win.
Al Nasr’s recent performance is also not good. Al-Nassr was aiming for the first championship in four years by appointing coach Rudi Garcia, who had achieved success in France’s Lille and Olympique Lyon this season. As the club hopes, the team is currently at the top of the league, but criticism of coach Garcia’s tactics is constantly being raised.
Fans were not afraid to criticize when they stayed in a draw against a mid-table team. A fan said on social media, “Coach Garcia is not doing anything. Anderson Talisca saved you in every game, but he is now out of power.”
Another fan questioned Garcia’s ability, saying, “The team level continues to go downhill.” “The team is suffering very strongly because of the coach. There is no solution, no identity, no individuality!”, “Leave, we don’t want you,” there were even gazes that wanted coach Garcia to be sacked.
