Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his 850th career goal as Al Nassr won 5-1 at Al-Hazm in the Saudi Pro League at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium at the weekend.
Ronaldo scored his sixth goal in his last three games and claimed two assists as Al Nassr recorded a third straight league victory.
Senegal international Sadio Mane, who joined Al Nassr from Bayern Munich, was also on the scoresheet with a strike in the 78th minute.
“Another great team performance! We keep improving. Let’s go @AlNassrFC.. 850 career goals and still counting!” the 38-year-old Ronaldo posted on social media.
After Al Nassr lost their first two league games this term, last season’s runners-up, who have scored 14 goals in their last three games, are now just four points off leaders Al-Hilal. Ronaldo is the league’s top scorer this season with six goals, one ahead of former Liverpool forward Mane.
Ronaldo’s longtime rival Lionel Messi, who has taken the MLS by storm with Inter Miami, currently has 818 career goals.
