It was like a scene from a wrestling match. It was an unsportsmanlike foul committed by Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr).
Ronaldo started the 2022-2023 season Saudi League round 25 away match against Al Hilal held at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the 19th (hereinafter Korean time), and failed to score a goal and prevent the team from losing 0-2.
Ronaldo, who wore the captain’s armband that day, stood at the forefront of the 4-2-3-1 formation. However, it was not enough to break through the center back combination of Jang Hyun-soo and Mohamed Jafari from Korea. Al Nasr scored the first goal from a penalty kick to Odion Ighalo in the 42nd minute of the first half, leading to a 0-1 lead.
However, in the 12th minute of the second half,바카라 Ronaldo committed an unexpected foul during the game. He knocked down Colombian Gustavo Cuellar with a wrestling move. Jumping up from behind Quellar, strangling Quellar, and then falling back together.
It was a scene reminiscent of the ‘headlock’ that professional wrestlers inflict on their opponents.
Ronaldo was eventually cautioned by referee Michael Oliver. However, British public broadcaster Sky Sports sarcastically said, “You only got a yellow card? Ronaldo reserved a warning for wrestling moves.”
After Ronaldo’s unsportsmanlike conduct, Al Nasr conceded again within five minutes. Again, they conceded a penalty kick and conceded to Ighalo. Afterwards, not only Ronaldo but also Al Nasr were defeated 0-2 by Al-Hilal’s solid organisation.
Al-Nasr lost the game in the rivalry and lost his manners.
