The GOATs reunited on the football field as Lionel Messi‘s Paris Saint-Germain took on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr Al-Hilal XI in a friendly encounter. The match ended with the French side securing a thrilling 5-4 victory despite playing most of the game with a man short. After the match, Ronaldo posted a number of pictures on Instagram, including one with his ‘greatest-rival’ Lionel Messi. The caption of the picture simply won fans’ hearts.
Ronaldo found the scoresheet twice, once from the penalty spot and the other time through a header. But, his heroics could prevent the All-Star XI from losing to the Ligue 1 club.
Though the Portuguese footballer failed to inspire his team to win on the field, he won the internet with his post after the game. Ronaldo wrote: “So happy to be back on the pitch, and on the score sheet!! And nice to see some old friends!”.
He shared a total of 5 pictures with the post, one of which was with Messi.
Ronaldo had an eventful match. He was decked by PSG’s keeper Keylor Navas’s flailing fist but he drilled the resulting penalty and then added another in a 5-4 exhibition defeat, his first appearance since moving to Saudi Arabia in a deal said to total more than 400 million euros.
