Cristiano celebrates Anderson Talisca
Cristiano Ronaldo proved there is more to his game than just scoring goals and iconic celebrations during Al-Nassr's 1-0 win against Al-Etiffaq.
The former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward has often been accused of being self-centred for not thoroughly celebrating the goals of his teammates.
On Sunday, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner put those accusations to bed when he gleefully celebrated Anderson Talisca's strike, which proved to be the winning goal.
Ronaldo fires blank on debut
Sports Brief earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo drew blank in his competitive debut, as Al-Nassr pipped Al-Etiffaq to seal a narrow 1-0 victory on Sunday.
Ronaldo had previously bagged a brace in his first game on Saudi Arabian soil when a select side from Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal played out an enthralling nine-goal thriller against Paris Saint-Germain.
The 37-year-old had seen his club debut delayed, due to a two-game ban handed to him during his previous stint with Manchester United.
