Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian football club, emerged victorious from the Arab Champions Cup final, defeating Al-Hilal with a 2-1 scoreline. The team’s star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, played a crucial role in the win, scoring two goals. However, the celebration was cut short as Ronaldo suffered an injury and had to be taken off the field. The severity of the injury is currently unknown.

Ronaldo was forced to leave the game in the 115th minute, visibly distraught and in tears. He was replaced by midfielder Ali Alhassan. The extent of his injury is a cause for concern for Al-Nassr, especially with the upcoming Saudi Pro League and Euro qualifying matches next month. However, Ronaldo showed optimism by participating in the trophy celebration, where he was seen dancing.

Despite finishing as runners-up in the previous season, Al-Nassr aims to secure the Saudi Pro League title this year. The addition of Sadio Mane to the team’s attack further heightens their chances. However, losing Ronaldo for an extended period would make their task more challenging. The competition for the title and the Golden Boot will be intense with Al-Ittihad’s signings of Karim Benzema and Roberto Firmino.
