Cristiano Ronaldo hit the mark for Al-Nassr in a matchup against Al-Ahli, delighting fans with a new celebration.

The legendary former Real Madrid forward opened the scoring within three minutes, neatly finishing a splendid pass from Sadio Mane.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner struck again in the second half, launching a formidable low shot that left Ahli goalkeeper Edouard Mendy with no chance.

Following his goal, the 38-year-old not only marked it with his signature 'siuu' celebration but also incorporated a traditional Saudi dance, adding to the excitement.
