‘Super Cup eliminated’ coach Al Nasr was angry “Ronaldo missed his chance”


Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr)’s goal was silenced by the manager.

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. 메이저사이트

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.

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 the 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 has not seen the Ronaldo effect that once dominated the European arena.

Ronaldo also played full-time in the match against RIT Park on the 23rd (Al-Nassr 1-0 win), which was his Saudi league debut, but failed to score. For two consecutive games, his toe did not burst.

According to the British media ‘Daily Mail’ on the 27th, after being eliminated from the Super Cup, coach Rudy García Al-Nasr said, “One of the things that changed the flow of the game (unfavorably) was the opportunity Ronaldo missed in the first half.” Congratulations to Al Ittihad. They had a much better first half than we did. We got better in the second half, but unfortunately we couldn’t change the result.”
