Cristiano Ronaldo: The superstar’s tears after the latest failure

Cristiano Ronaldo left the pitch in tears after his club Al-Nassr lost the final of the King’s Cup in Saudi Arabia. Al-Nassr lost 4:5 to champions Al-Hilal on penalties. For the 39-year-old Portuguese, this also ended his second season in the kingdom on the Persian Gulf without a title.

At the end of regular time, the score was 1:1. Senegalese Kalidou Koulibaly equalized for Al-Nassr two minutes before the final whistle. After goalless extra time, the match went to penalties, in which Ronaldo scored his penalty. Meshari Al-Nemer’s missed shot decided the match in Al-Hilal’s favor.

After the match ended with a total of three red cards, Ronaldo, who had hit the post with an overhead kick, had to be consoled by his teammates. The opposing players also tried to cheer him up. The 39-year-old had already lost in the championship match against Al-Hilal, who successfully defended the Copa del Rey and won the trophy for the eleventh time, and in April in the match for the Saudi Super Cup – when Ronaldo was sent off after an elbow strike.

Al-Nassr finished the championship in second place, 14 points behind Al-Hilal. Ronaldo set a league record with 35 goals this season.
