HE FELL IN THE 'SEMIS' OF THE SUPER CUP
Monumental disaster for Cristiano in his first tie with Al-Nassr
Al-Nassr fell to Al-Ittihad in the Super Cup semifinals (3-1), in a match that meant Cristiano Ronaldo's first loss in an important match on Saudi soil
The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo by the To the-Nassr shook to the whole world after the big path that has had in the best clubs of Europe. His exit of the Manchester United in full stop mundialista did not leave very stopped to the forward, but attained to concretise an agreement multimillionaire with one of the best teams of Saudi Arabia by the next two seasons and average.
His official presentation on the terrains of game was discreet in the victory (1-0) in front of the To the-Ettifaq, where could not debut with goal in spite of having contested the 90' minutes. However, in his second commitment, this time by the Supercopa of Arabia, meant the first fuss of the Portuguese in his new travesía by the Saudi Professional League.
The team of 'CR7' fell in the 'semis' in front of the To the-Ittihad by a marker of 3 to 1, in a commitment in which they went widely surpassed and did not show any real capacity of reaction in spite of having shortened distances to 23' minutes of the end. The ex Real Madrid was not well and did not mark differences without mattering that it is accustomed to shine in big stages. First disillusionment of the season.
To the 15' of the first-half, the local group opened the tin with a good offensive combination that finished in a finish solid of the Brazilian Romarinho. Nevertheless, Cristiano and company looked for the equality and were near to achieve it to few minutes of the rest, although they finished desprotegiendo the defensive sector and was something that the luso Nuno Espírito Santo, trainer of the To the-Ittihad, took advantage of to perfection.
Very hard defeat
After the spirit showed by the To the-Nassr in equalising the actions, arose a contragolpe by a loss of balloon that Hamed Allah closed with a clean head butt after an assistance of Romarinho, the best offensive referent of the the 'tigers of Asia'. Cristiano looked for to put to his team in the marker by the aerial road but the guardameta Marcelo Grohe contained the finish.
Although the ex Benfica Anderson Talisca saw door to the 67' of the complement to reduce the brecha and avivar the aspirations of the tie, was not sufficient for the defensive block of Nuno. In fact, the dumped offensive derived in another contragolpe that the right side Muhannad Shanqeeti would send at the end of the network to concretise the (3-1) definite. The one who thinks that the new stage of Christian in Arabia will be bread eaten to close a brilliant career seems estár mistaken. The Portuguese is not comfortable and notices him in each balloon that touches on the Saudi lawn.
