Cristiano Ronaldo scored two penalties to help Al-Nassr beat Al-Shabab 4-0 in the Saudi Pro League on Tuesday.
 

Ronaldo scored the first goal for Al-Nassr in the 13th minute from the penalty spot, and then scored his second goal in the 38th minute from another penalty. He then celebrated scoring against Al-Shabab by performing the Ardah, a traditional Saudi dance.

Senegalese player Sadio Mane scored Al-Nassr's third goal in the 41st minute, giving them a commanding 3-0 lead at halftime.
 

Al-Nassr missed a chance to extend their lead in the 63rd minute when Abdulrahman Ghareeb missed a penalty. However, they secured the victory with a fourth goal from Sultan Al-Ghanam in the 80th minute.

Al-Shabab was down to 10 men in the 78th minute after their captain, Argentine Ever Banega, was sent off with a red card.
 

With this victory, Al-Nassr now stands with six points in the sixth position, while Al-Shabab remains at two points, holding the 17th position in the league standings.

That was not the first time Cristiano Ronaldo got involved in Saudi culture, he was spotted before performing the Saudi Ardah dance and interacting with popular Saudi songs with his teammates.
