We will have to wait a little longer to witness the great premiere of Cristiano Ronaldo in the colors of Al-Nassr.
Suspended for two games, the Portuguese striker, who had just arrived in Saudi Arabia, celebrated the victory of his teammates from a distance.
Against Al-Ta'ee, his new team won 2-0 on Friday.
It was in full training on his bike that Cristiano Ronaldo reacted to the double of Talisca, Brazilian striker of Al-Nassr.
On a video posted on the club's social networks, we see the five-time Ballon d'Or applaud the goal of the break, smiling.

With this victory, Al-Nassr consolidates its position as leader of the Saudi championship after its first 12 games, and is 4 points ahead of its runner-up, Al-Shabab.
But before registering the reinforcement of Cristiano Ronaldo on the ground, the team trained by Rudi Garcia will still have to wait.
First game on January 22?
After breaking the phone of a young supporter in England last April, Cristiano Ronaldo is still suspended, and will miss the shock against the second in the championship on January 14.
It is therefore on January 22, against the club of Al-Ettifaq, that the Portuguese international should make his big premiere in his new colors.
Unless a possible friendly match on January 19 allows him to face PSG and Lionel Messi.
Recruited free this winter for a salary of 200 million euros per year until 2025, Cristiano Ronaldo is also the ninth foreign player to join the workforce of Al-Nassr.
The maximum number of eight foreign players authorized by the Saudi federation is therefore exceeded, and a player will have to leave the club for Ronaldo to be officially registered.
