The Al-Nassr captain reached the above tally, his best goal return since 2017, in 59 games for both club and country, as he reminded the whole world of his quality despite being on the wrong side of 30.

Meanwhile, according to GOAL, Ronaldo is in contention for several accolades at the impending Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, such as Best Men’s Player, Best Middle East Player, and Fans’ Favourite Player.

The prestigious event is scheduled for January 19 at The Atlantis Palm in Dubai.

During his time in Dubai, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus ace was spotted unwinding at the beach.

A video circulating on social media, as seen by Sports Brief, showcased the 38-year-old displaying his well-toned physique while playfully kicking a ball around.

Here is the video:

What's next for CR7?

He won't be action until Al-Nassr square off against Inter Milan on February 1, in a highly-anticipated friendly clash, per Sofascore, which will pitch the football GOATs against each other for probably the last time.
