Portugal superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo showed glimpses of his younger self as he left an opponent for dead with some filthy skill on January 22.

The legendary forward, as it has been widely reported, agreed a £173-million per year deal with Al-Nassr to become the highest-paid football star in the world.

He made a bright start to life as a player in Saudi Arabia, scoring twice in an exhibition match against Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain.

On his competitive debut, he was in the starting lineup, as Al-Nassr came up against Ettifaq FC in the Saudi Arabian top-flight league.

Brazilian international, Talisco opened the scoring for his side in what proved to be the only goal in the game, but there was also a viral moment in the 77th minute.

In a video shared by Al-Nassr on social media, the team was engaged in a two-minute spell of dominant football, where their opponents were completely outplayed with a series of passes and attempts in the Ettifaq box.

The same sequence of play saw Ronaldo come up against an opponent down the flanks, and the Portugal superstar activated his classic dribbling ability from back when he was in his prime.

He shifted to the right before faking a shot and turning the other way, leaving the Ettifaq defender clutching at straws. The veteran then unleashed a low shot which was parried away.

The dribble was so impressive that one fan genuinely thought the Ettifaq player was laughing at himself afterwards.

Here are some of the reactions from fans:

“He should count it as a privilege to have been flawed by the greatest player to ever grace this game.”
“This club can challenge for champions league tittle they play are very beautiful football."
“Great debut for Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr. I hope he can do a great job in this new challenge. My best wishes for Cristiano Ronaldo.”
"He is like wine the more he ages the better he gets!"
