Alnasr Ronaldo scores debut goal on ACL stage…team comes from behind to win 3-1
Left-footed shot against the Tajikistan team
By Lee Jae-sang = Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) finally scored his first goal in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL).
Ronaldo’s equalizer and a brace from Andersson Talisca gave Al-Nasr a 3-1 win over FC Istiklol (Tajikistan) in their 2023-24 ACL Group E second leg at Al-Awal Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday (March 3).
With their second straight win, Al-Nasr (6 points) moved to the top of the group ahead of Persepolis (1W, 1D), who defeated Alduhail (Qatar – 1-1) 1-0 earlier in the day.
Istiklol is in last place with a 1-1 draw (1 pts).
Ronaldo, who started as a frontline striker, scored the equalizer in the 21st minute with the score 1-1.
After receiving a pass from a teammate, Ronaldo fired a left-footed shot from the left side of the box that bounced off an opponent’s tackle and rattled the net with his left foot. After a video assistant referee (VAR) review, Ronaldo’s goal was ruled onside.
It was the second goal in two games for Ronaldo, who made his ACL debut against Persepolis on March 20.
Ronaldo has been dubbed the “UCL Man” after becoming the all-time leader in UEFA Champions League appearances (183), all-time leader in goals (140), all-time leader in goals in a season (17), and all-time leader in goals scored (7).
