Cristiano Ronaldo scores four for Al Nassar (El Nassar)
Yesterday (Saturday), Cristiano Ronaldo reached eight league goals this season in the Saudi League, when he completed a hat-trick in the first half and scored 0:3 for Al-Nasser against Damascus.
One of the greatest players of all time found the net for the first time in the 18th minute, from the penalty spot.
Five minutes later he added a beautiful kick from outside the box with his left foot, straight into the net of the seventh-ranked Saudi Arabia.
Just before the whistle for the first half, you allowed the third, finishing off a nice team move.
This is Cristiano's second hat-trick in three games, after the four he scored about two weeks ago, and hat-trick number 62 in his illustrious career.
Currently, CR7 has eight goals and two assists in five league games.
Thanks to the easy victory, Al-Nasser returned to first place in the table.
She now has 43 points - two more than Al-Itihad.

The reactions on the net, as expected, like everything concerning Ronaldo, range from ridicule for the neglected league to those who praise him and claim that he is a goal machine.
Many are calling for Ronaldo to "rewrite the history of the Saudi league", after the 38-year-old has enjoyed a successful start to life in Saudi Arabia since joining Al Nassar on a £175m-a-year deal. Many believe he is "proving he deserves to play in Europe", and will return to the continent sooner than expected. But what amused many on the net was the reaction of Ronaldo's friend who hugged him excitedly after the goal and "refused to let go" after the celebration. "I would have refused too,"
"I'm very happy, but the most important thing is the victory," Ronaldo said after the hat-trick.
"There was a great team effort, all the players ran and fought. For me, the goals are important, but it is more important to help the team. Now I feel that I have acclimated better to the team. It was not easy for me in the first five games, the players knew my movements, but I did not know theirs Now I understand them too. Step by step, we will reach the highest level."
