Reporter Ahn Gyeong-nam = In fact, a match between Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nassr) and Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain), which drew attention as the last ‘Meho Daejeon’, scored a whopping 9 goals.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) won 5-4 in a friendly match against the Al-Nasr-Al-Hilal All-Star team held at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, on the 20th (Korean time).
This match was the debut match for Ronaldo, who left the European stage last month and made a new nest in Al-Nassr, a Saudi professional football field, on the periphery of football.
About 68,000 spectators filled the stadium to watch the match between Ronaldo and Messi.
The opening goal was scored by Messi. In the third minute of the game, he kicked Neymar’s forward pass with his left foot.
Ronaldo also fired back. In the 34th minute of the first half, in the course of an aerial contest, he was hit by the goalkeeper’s fist and earned a penalty kick, and after succeeding as a kicker, he performed a ‘heavy ceremony’.
PSG was sent off after receiving a red card in the 39th minute for Juan Bernat for fouling while blocking an opponent’s counterattack.
After that, both teams exchanged one more goal. PSG took the lead with Marquinhos’ goal in the 43rd minute of the first half, but Ronaldo took advantage of a mistake in the opponent’s defense and completed multiple goals in the first half with a left-footed shot.
