Ronaldo Scored 2, Messi 1 as PSG win Saudi Friendly 5-4

Saudi Arabia Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi both scored as Paris Saint-Germain beat the Riyadh Season Team 5-4 at the King Fahd International Stadium on Thursday.

Ronaldo scored twice in his first game since signing for Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr following his departure from Manchester United.

Messi, who returned to PSG after winning the World Cup with Argentina, scored the game’s first goal before Ronaldo equalised for the Saudi select team, which included players from Al Nassr and Riyadh rivals Al Hilal, with a well-struck penalty.

Both Ronaldo and Messi were substituted after 60 minutes, but they were still on the pitch long enough to see Ramos put PSG 3-2 up, Saudi select defender Jang Hyun-Soo equalize, and Kylian Mbappe score a penalty to make it 4-3.

With Ronaldo having left European club football for Saudi Arabia, this may be the last time he sees longtime rival Messi.
