Cristiano Ronaldo, 39 years old, all his teeth and a new record


By: Manu Tournoux

The Portuguese star continues to increase his number of goals in the colors of Al Nassr.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 50th goal in an Al Nassr jersey, proving that, despite the team's results not being favorable to him, at 39 years old, he remains a formidable force in front of goal. The Portuguese striker consolidates his position as top scorer in the Saudi Professional League.

Earlier this week, Al Nassr was eliminated from the Asian Champions League by Al Ainm after the penalty shootout. A goal from Cristiano in the 118th minute sent the match to penalties, but despite his contribution, misses from Brozovic, Telles and Otávio sealed the team's elimination in the quarter-finals.

Ronaldo scores in vain for Al Nassr

In the Saudi championship, the title chances are practically non-existent, as Al Hilal leads with 65 points, nine more than Luis Castro's team, who have played one more match. 10 days before the end of the championship and with 30 points at stake, barring disaster, Neymar's team will win the title.

But Cr7 can console himself knowing that he has reached the 50-goal mark in 58 matches since his arrival in Saudi Arabia. He retains his place as top scorer of the season in Saudi football with 23 goals in 22 matches, which places him three lengths behind Aleksandar Mitrovic, his closest pursuer.

Not only does he top the scoring charts in Saudi Arabia, but he is also among the season's top assist providers with nine, one fewer than Al-Ettifaq's Álvaro Medrán. The top scorer in the history of football continues to show an unwavering desire to increase his number of pawns, despite his 39 years. He is now 121 goals away from the 1,000 mark. Can he really continue this long?
