Minutes 45+3, Al Nassr organized a counterattack. Cristiano Ronaldo dribbles skillfully past an Abha player. Above, his teammates are also ready for a dangerous wave. However, the referee immediately blew the whistle to end the first half.
Ronaldo could not keep his composure, so he grabbed the ball and kicked it away, accompanied by complaints. The referee immediately gave a yellow card to the captain of Al Nassr’s side. This was a reasonable decision of the referee team because the first half only had 2 minutes of injury time.
After February sublime with 8 goals, 2 assists and a series of individual awards, Ronaldo leveled off his form with 3 consecutive matches without scoring or assisting. Even in the match against Abha last night (March 14), the 38-year-old striker was substituted for the first time by coach Rudi Garcia when the match was not over.
CR7 expressed annoyance at the unsatisfactory performance. In 87 minutes on the field, the former Man United star did not have a shot on target.
Ronaldo’s opponent and teammates in the semi-finals is Al Wehda. Al Nassr showed determination in the King’s Cup, the arena they have not won in the past 33 years.
