Hysteria: an unprecedented waiting list for Ronaldo's debut game against PSG and Messi | Israel today


The Portuguese, who signed a huge contract with Al Nasser, will meet the French champions and the great nemesis in six days for an exhibition match • About 2 million people entered the online sale for the right to be in the stadium and see Mbappe and Neymar up close

Cristiano Ronaldo's first appearance for Saudi Arabia's Al Nasser against PSG and its stars - Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar - led to more than 2 million online ticket requests.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker, who signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al Nasser worth $75 million a year on December 30, has yet to feature in their games following a two-game suspension handed down by the FA on December 30, after Shela smashed the phone of a young Manchester United fan.

Ronaldo's suspension will be completed when he sits out Al-Nasr's Saudi League game against Al-Shabaab on Saturday, making him available to make his club debut at home to Al-Itifaq at Marsoul Park on January 22.

Even before Al Nasser will compete in an exhibition match against PSG on January 19, when he is expected to make his debut.

The exhibition match against PSG will take place at the 68,000-seat King Fahd Stadium in the Saudi capital and sources said that tickets sold out "within minutes" after they went on sale earlier this week.

At one point, over 2 million fans were queuing online for tickets to watch Ronaldo's first appearance, and his first meeting with Messi since Ronaldo scored twice in Juventus' 3-0 Champions League win over Barcelona at Camp Nou in December 2020.

Messi scored 22 goals in these meetings, compared to Ronaldo's 21.
