Football legend Cristiano Ronaldo is currently playing with the Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr and seemingly has adjusted well at his new club in Asian football. The Portuguese footballer is currently in spectacular form, and in their last Saudi Pro League match against Al-Shabab, he managed to enter the scoresheet. After scoring the winner against Al-Shabab, Cristiano adopted a new style of celebration as the video has gone viral on social media.
In the 60th minute of the game, when both the teams were 2-2, Ronaldo scored the winning goal for Al-Nassr. Receiving a pass, Ronaldo at his usual pace, cut back in and fired a shot from outside the box, completely weaving his magic. After scoring a critical goal for his side, Ronaldo ran towards his teammates near the corner flag and his teammates ran to hug him. After performing his trademark 'SIUUUU' celebration, the 38-year-old Portuguese bent on his knees and kissed the football pitch, performing Sajdah, which is a traditional way of prayer among Muslims.

Ever since Ronaldo joined the Saudi Arabian club in the January transfer window, he has scored 14 goals in 18 games. He is currently playing on a 2.5-year contract worth 200 million euros per year. This whopping salary has made Ronaldo the highest-paid footballer of all time. If Al-Nassr would have lost their match on Tuesday night, Saudi Pro League toppers Al-Ittihad would have been crowned the league champions, however, Ronaldo's goal came at a crucial moment to keep his side's league title hopes alive.
Cristiano Ronaldo-led Al-Nassr are placed at the second spot with just three points away from the toppers Al-Ittihad and will next face Ettifaq on Saturday, May 27 before their last league match against Al Fateh on Wednesday, May 31.
