Ronaldo’s free-kick form… Al Nasr “a truly terrifying sight” thrill
Al-Nassr was excited to see Cristiano Ronaldo prepare for a free kick.
On the 23rd (Korean time), Al-Nasr, a member of Saudi Arabia’s first division, posted a picture on social media, saying, “It is a truly frightening sight.”
In the photo, Ronaldo and Al Nasr midfielder Taliska were preparing for the free kick awarded in the 34th minute of the first half.
Ronaldo was in the same position as when he fired a free kick in his prime.
Regarding this, Al-Nasr induced a response from the home fans, saying that it was an act that scared the opposing team.
On this day, Ronaldo made his Al-Nasr debut as a starter in the 2022/23 season Saudi Professional League round 14 match against R.E.T. Park held at Mrsul Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo, who came out as a starter in the friendly match between PSG and the Al-Nasr-Al-Hilal team held on the 20th, scored two goals, raising expectations for the first match in the Saudi league.
However, in the match against R.T. Park, despite playing full-time for 90 minutes, he recorded only one effective shot without scoring, leaving a rather disappointing performance.
In particular, in the 34th minute of the first half, in the free kick chance, two players with good skills in shooting prepared a free kick together. In the end, Ronaldo handled the free kick, but the shot went over the goalpost and it did not make an effective shot, which hurt his pride. The scary scene turned into a futile scene. 바카라
Ronaldo, one of the greatest strikers in football history, terrified opposing goalkeepers by scoring many goals with what he called ‘non-rotating free kicks’ during his prime.
Ronaldo, who has scored 58 goals from free kicks alone and is ranked 12th in all-time free kick scoring, is not showing as threatening free kicks as he used to be as the precision of free kicks has recently dropped significantly.
In particular, Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in the summer of 2018, attempted a total of 74 free kicks for Juventus over three seasons, but scored only one goal. He even earned the reputation of being ‘the worst free-kick taker in Serie A’.
Ronaldo, who scored a free kick against Torino in July 2020, later moved to Manchester United, and after scoring a free kick against Norwich City in April last year, there is no free kick goal on the club stage.
Ronaldo made up his mind at his new team, Al Nasr, and became an ambitious free-kick taker, but contrary to his wishes, his shot missed the goal again.
