Football fans were left speechless after witnessing Cristiano Ronaldo’s failed attempt to beat an Al-Hilal defender.
The Portuguese superstar had a rough night on Wednesday as his team Al-Nassr suffered a 2-0 defeat in the Riyadh Season Cup final at the Kingdom Arena.
Goals from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Aldawsari helped the Saudi Pro League leaders to a comfortable victory. And one of the examples fans saw on an action-packed night was Ronaldo’s skill (or lack thereof) in the opening minutes of the match.
The 39-year-old received the ball on the left wing and tried to pass his Portugal teammate Ruben Neves towards the goal. However, Ronaldo’s historic passing skills appear to have eluded him as he ended up losing control, allowing the former Wolves midfielder to clear.
Fans were quick to comment on what they had just seen, with several being a little amused by the failed attempt.
