In a thrilling match that saw Al-Nassr leading Al-Raed 3-0, a moment of drama unfolded. As the game was drawing to a close, Al-Raed was awarded a penalty in the 89th minute, offering them a glimmer of hope. However, tension escalated when Mohamed Fouzair and Karim El Berkaoui, both from Al-Raed, locked horns over who would take the crucial shot.
Amidst this heated exchange, a figure of calm emerged – none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who had already found the back of the net for Al-Nassr in the same game, decided to step in. A video circulating on social media captured Ronaldo’s intervention as he gestured to El Berkaoui to step away from the penalty spot.
Ronaldo’s quick thinking diffused the situation, allowing Fouzair to take the penalty without further delay. Fouzair’s determination paid off as he executed a cheeky panenka kick, sending the ball sailing into the net. Despite this late goal narrowing Al-Raed’s deficit to 1-3, the scoreline remained unchanged till the final whistle.
This incident not only highlighted Ronaldo’s sportsmanship but also his leadership skills, proving once again why he is revered in the world of football.
