WHAT HAPPENED? The Portuguese made his competitive bow on Sunday as he captained his new side to a 1-0 victory over Al-Ettifaq. Talisca got the game's only goal and despite drawing a blank, Ronaldo was clearly delighted with the result. After full-time, he wrote on Twitter: "First game, first win - well done guys. Thanks to all the fans for incredible support."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Cristiano Ronaldo made his debut on Saudi Arabian soil during a friendly match between a combined XI of Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal taking on Paris Saint-German last week. He scored a brace despite his side losing 5-4 to the French giants.
