Who are Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates in the Saudi All-Star XI which will face Lionel Messi and PSG?

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will come face to face once again on Thursday as Paris Saint-Germain take on a Saudi All-Star XI in a friendly match in Riyadh.

The Portuguese star will finally make his maiden appearance in Saudi Arabia since joining Al-Nassr earlier in January.

All the tickets are already sold out as the Asian nation awaits a blockbuster clash featuring two of the greatest footballers of all time.

Who is in the Saudi All-Star XI team?

New Al-Nassr signing Cristiano Ronaldo is all set to lead the Saudi All-Star XI against PSG. He will be in the company of players like former Brazil international Luis Gustavo and Saudi Arabia internationals Mohammed Kanno and Salem Al-Dawsari, who had scored his team's winning goal against Argentina in the 2022 World Cup.

Former Arsenal and current Al-Nassr goalkeeper David Ospina had to undergo elbow surgery and will not feature in this tie.
