Ronaldo smashed his 50th goal of this year

The 38-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo has proven that he is not finished yet. The Al Nassr and Portugal ace star striker has just scored his 50th goal in the 2023 calendar year. The 5-time Balon d'Or winner created this goal when he guided his team Al Nassr beat Al Shabab with a score of 5-2 in the 2023/2024 Saudi Arabia King's Cup quarter-final match on Monday. Apart from Ronaldo, Al Nassr's other four goals in this match were scored respectively by Seko Fofana, Sadio Mane, Abdulrahman Ghareeb and Mohammed Maran.

Thanks to this result, The Yellow Submarine also has the right to qualify for the semifinals following the steps of Al Khaleej and Al Hilal. Another quarter-final match between Al Faisaly vs Al Ittihad will be played on Tuesday (19/12/2023) next week. Ronaldo's goal against Al Shabab felt special. The reason is, that this is the 50th goal scored by Ronaldo at club and national team level in 2023.

So far, Ronaldo has been recorded as having played in 56 matches throughout 2023. Apart from scoring 50 goals, the Portuguese talisman has also contributed 14 assists. In February 2024, Ronaldo will be celebrating his 39th birthday. Until now, there is no sign that the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus star has any desire to retire soon. After hitting the 50th goal against Al Shabab, Ronaldo shared a post on his Instagram account which can be read: “Great victory and I'm thrilled to announce my 50th goal in 2023, all thanks to the unwavering support of my teammates, fans, and my family! There is still room for a few more this year.”
