WHAT HAPPENED? Playing in the Saudi Pro League, the 37-year-old received the ball inside his own half before sweeping a brilliant pass in behind the defence to his teammate.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: While Ronaldo has already scored five goals in four games before this latest appearance – including a four-goal haul in his last outing – this was his first-ever assist for his new side. What's more, he doubled his tally later on in the game, turning provider again as Abdullah Madu netted a 78th-minute winner.
WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO? After this match, Al-Nassr will travel away to Damak on 25 February for their next Saudi Pro League fixture.
