Cristiano Ronaldo makes history following Arab Club Champions Cup win

Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, on Saturday, made history after leading his team to win the Arab Club Champions Cup.

Ronaldo surpassed late football icon, Gerd Muller’s record for most recorded headed goals in football’s history with his goal against Al-Hilal in the Arab Cup of Champions final.

The Portuguese superstar scored twice as nine-man Al-Nassr won 2-1 against Al-Hilal.

The former Manchester United attacker scored his second of the game, which turned out to be the winner, with a header.

Ronaldo has now scored 145 headed goals, one more than Muller.

Al-Hilal took the lead in the final through Michael in the 51st minute. But Ronaldo restored parity some minutes later by converting from close range after Sultan Al-Ghannam had come up with a brilliant pass.

The match ended 1-1 after 90 minutes before Ronaldo scored a header in the 98th minute after Seko Fofana’s strike had bounced back off the woodwork.
