In the dying moments, Mohammed Al-Fatil struck in the 102nd minute to give Al Nassr a shock lead and trigger mass delirium. And if that was not already spectacular enough, Mohammed Maran popped up to secure the points in the 104th minute of the contest.

Ex-Manchester United forward Ronaldo did not get onto the score sheet, but he showed plenty of brilliant flashes in the Middle East. After a tricky start to life in Saudi, Ronaldo has since scored eight goals and contributed two assists in league appearances.

He recently smashed home his first hattrick in the Middle East during a 3-0 victory over Damac FC, a couple of weeks after hammering four goals past Al-Wehda. While he may not have envisaged spending his twilight football years in Saudi Arabia, he certainly appears to be enjoying life with Rudi Garcia’s side.

Ronaldo could be in action against Al-Ittihad in his side’s next match, before taking on Abha in the King Cup of Champions the following week.
