Ronaldo’s Selfless Act Earns Fan Praise: Giving up Hat-Trick for Mane’s Penalty Shot, Setting New Record in Victory

Cristiano Ronaldo gave up the penalty to Sadio Mane, but the Portuguese star still scored his own double to help Al-Nassr reach the King’s Cup of Champions final.


This morning (May 2), in the match between Al Nassr and Al-Khaleej , Cristiano Ronaldo made a nice move by giving up the penalty to Mane. This causes many people to have a different view of Ronaldo.

Ronaldo returned from suspension in the first leg after being sent off in the match against Al-Hilal last month, Ronaldo needs a goal more than ever.

Ronaldo scored the opening goal with an excellent volley. In the 37th minute, Ronaldo had a chance to score a double when Al Nassr was awarded a penalty. It is known that the Portuguese superstar was the designated penalty taker at Al-Nassr, but he assigned responsibility to teammate Mane, helping to increase the Senegal international’s confidence.

The camera lens captured Ronaldo encouraging Mane behind him with the words “Come on”. Mane did not let his teammates down when he scored to double the gap for the home team.

Ronaldo’s above action made the online community once again stir up.

Commenting on X fans, he said: “He has done this many times. Ronaldo also gave up his penalty to Benzema.”

The second person suddenly said: ” Rare time Ronaldo gave me a pen.”

The third person did not forget to remind CR7’s anti-fan: “I thought they said Ronaldo was selfish.”

Another person said about Ronaldo’s nickname: “Who said he was Penaldo?”

Although there was no goal on the penalty spot, Ronaldo had a perfect start for his return to competition when he completed a double in the 57th minute.


Ronaldo’s mark helped Al Nassr win 3-1 and advance straight to the King Cup final. This will be a better opportunity for Ronaldo and his teammates to conquer the title this season.

The double brought Ronaldo to 44 goals in 45 matches in all competitions this season. If the above form continues, it will not be surprising when Portuguese coach Roberto Martinez summons Ronaldo to prepare for Euro 2024 this summer.
