When Ronaldo appeared, “Messi! Messi!”… mocked and even ‘no score’
Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr) heard the name of Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain) at the stadium. Fans of opposing teams chanted Messi’s name to mock Ronaldo.
Al Nasr lost 1-3 to Al Ittihad in the semi-finals of the Saudi Super Cup held at Kingfad International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at 3:00 am on the 27th (Korean time). The finale was disappointing.
This competition is the stage where the four teams that won the championship and runner-up respectively in the Saudi Arabian Professional League and King Cup in the previous 2021-2022 season participate and compete for the championship cup.
Al Nasr finished third in the league last season. However, as Al Hilal, the professional league champion in the 2021-2022 season, took the King Cup runner-up, the right to advance to this tournament passed to Al Nasr.
On this day, Ronaldo started as a forward striker. 먹튀검증
His start was good. Ronaldo immobilized his opponents with his flamboyant footwork. Standing near the center line in the 8th minute of the first half, he left his ball still and moved his right and left feet brilliantly. The two Al Ittihad players just watched Ronaldo like that. He couldn’t steal the ball.
Ronaldo almost scored a goal. He put his head on a cross coming from the right in the 42nd minute when his team was trailing 0-1. The ball headed for the goal, but was blocked by the goalkeeper’s super save.
In the end, Ronaldo was finally silent. Al Nasr recovered by one goal, but conceded two more goals and lost 1-3.
After the game, the British media ‘Daily Mail’ reported that “Ronaldo was mocked by the opposing crowd at the stadium.”
According to the media, Al Ittihad fans shouted the name of his rival Messi to mock Ronaldo.
‘Daily Mail’ also explained that “Ronaldo had to fight with the crowd chanting Messi.” Of course, there were no physical fight scenes that day. It means that the atmosphere of ‘mockery’ was not serious.
