WHAT HAPPENED? The Portuguese superstar's purple patch continued in Saudi Arabia as he scored a brace in Al-Nassr's dramatic 4-3 win over Al-Ahli in a Saudi Pro League clash on Friday. With the two strikes against Al-Ahli, Ronaldo took his goalscoring tally to nine in six league appearances this season.

After the match, the 38-year-old addressed the media where he hit back at his critics who had written him off as he claimed that he was far from being done and dusted.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to reporters after the Al-Ahli clash, a fired-up Ronaldo said, "They say Ronaldo is done… but it’s not true. I will continue to play until my legs say: 'Cristiano, I'm done'. I still have a lot. I still love football and scoring goals. I still love winning. They say I'm done but I'm still proving that it's not true."
