Cristiano Ronaldo performs ‘Siuu’ celebration scoring two goals in Saudi debut as Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé lead PSG to thriller 5-4 victory vs Riyadh All-Star XI

Cristiano Ronaldo may be 37 now, but the blood flowing through his veins may feel like 24 as the Portuguese sensation lightning up the King Fahd International Stadium after scoring a brace against Paris Saint Germain.

The much anticipated Riyadh Season Cup has left football fans in awe after the thrilling encounter between the arch-rivals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi ended up on a scoreline of 5-4.

PSG took the lead very early on in the game via Messi after Neymar played a line-breaking pass to the feet of the Argentine magician.

Ronaldo stepped up since then and carried the Riyadh All-Star XI on his shoulders. The former Manchester United icon scored from the penalty spot in the 33rd minute after Navas caught him in the face led to the spot kick.

The game had full of ups and downs as PSG defender Juan Bernat saw a straight red card just before Sergio Ramos scored for the French side and made the scoreline 2-1.

Ronaldo is inevitable and showed his class once again after scoring for the second time, on this occasion, with a classic Cristiano Ronaldo type of goal.

Riyadh XI was formed with players from Al Nassr and Al Hilal football clubs while Ronaldo was their captain. The teammates looked to be in the mood too as they enjoyed the performance shown by the legendary figure and to be frank, these are the moments some of them may have dreamt of.

After scoring the second time, Ronaldo could not hold himself from performing a ‘Siuuu’ with his fellow teammates and the players as well as the whole crowd went berserk and joined the ‘Siuuuu’ party with the man himself.


The game was full of Spot kicks as Neymar missed a penalty in the first half but Kylian Mbappe converted another penalty after the restart of the second half, taking PSG to a lead again before all the superstars were substituted within the 65th minute. 

PSG may take the trophy with them after a 5-4 victory over the Riyadh XI but certainly, Cristiano Ronaldo was the cherry on top of the cake and his magnificent performance earned him the Man of The Match.

There could be possibly no Ronaldo-Messi face-off in further times, but if that was the final time, then what a show it was! Staggering!
