Ronaldo outsmarted his marker by shaping to shoot, only to chop back in characteristic fashion, which saw his marker helplessly fall to the pitch.

Unfortunately, his effort after the trickery did not yield the expected result, as a combination of the goalkeeper and the Al-Etiffaq defence dealt with the danger.

Nonetheless, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United frontman will end his first official game on the winning side, MARCA reports.

Strike partner, Anderson Talisca netted the only goal of the match, as Al-Nassr moved to the top of the Saudi Pro League despite playing one game less than closest rivals, Al-Hilal.

Ronaldo would hope to add goals to his trickery when his new team faces Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Super Cup on Thursday, January 26, per Besoccer.
