Cristiano Ronaldo Shatters Saudi Pro League with Record Breaking 35 Goals

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to defy age and expectations, setting a new record in the Saudi Pro League with 35 goals in a single season.

This feat surpasses the previous record of 34 goals set by Abderrazak Hamdallah in 2019.

Even at 39 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to keep breaking records with his amazing goal-scoring prowess. The Portuguese player shattered the Saudi Pro League record for most goals scored in a season. In Al-Nassr’s season-ending league stage victory over Al-Ittihad 4-2 in Riyadh, he scored twice.

With the two goals, Ronaldo broke the record held by Abderrazak Hamdallah, who scored 34 goals in the 2019 season while playing for Al Nassr, and increased his total to 35 goals in a season.

Despite having two chances in front of goal disallowed in the first half, Ronaldo looked sharp from the moment the kickoff whistle blew on Monday. But in the dying moments of the first half, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner managed to give Al-Nassr the lead.

He scored the first goal with a low shot from the left side of the area after chesting down a long ball from Mohammed Al-Fatil. In the meanwhile, he scored a header in the second half with 21 minutes left after Marcelo Brozovic’s corner. Five minutes later, he was replaced off the field to a standing ovation from the home crowd.

Ronaldo broke the Saudi Pro League record and afterwards uploaded a post on social media. Ronaldo captioned the photo, saying, “I don’t follow the records, the records follow me.”

The legendary Portuguese player also made history by being the first player to score the most goals in four separate leagues. During his remarkable career, Ronaldo earned three Golden Boots in Spain, one in the Premier League, and another in Serie A while he was a player for Juventus.
