Cristiano Ronaldo scored 4 goals for Al-Nassr in a crucial match vs Al-Wehda. He reached and surpassed a personal milestone of 500 career league goals in the process.

"Thank you for the welcome (Al Nassr fans), our team was good and happy with my goals today and happy that we are in first place ". Ronaldo after the Al Nassr vs Al Wehda game.

Ronaldo's first goal was a powerful left-footed shot. The second goal was a demonstration of his poacher's instincts as he raced towards a through-ball and finished.

Ronaldo continued his scoring spree with a penalty goal early in the second half and added a fourth by sliding the ball into an empty net after the goalkeeper could only paw his tame shot back.

Al-Nassr have been facing a patch of mixed form since signing Ronaldo for a contract worth £173 million per year. The club had drawn two of their last three league games and were knocked out of the Saudi Super Cup, putting their title aspirations at risk.

However, Ronaldo's four goals helped the club leapfrog their rivals and put them back in the running for the title.

On the all-time chart of league goal scorers, Ronaldo with 503 goals is only behind Pele (604), Romario (544), Josef Bican (518), and Ferenc Puskas (514).

Cristiano Ronaldo's all 503 league goals in his career: Sporting CP - 3 Man United - 103 Real Madrid - 311 Juventus - 81 Al Nassr - 5.

He has scored 152 goals with his weak foot, making him one of the most versatile and gifted football players of all time. He has 824 official career goals, making him one of the most prolific goal scorers in football history.

With his latest hat-trick for Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored a total of 61 hat-tricks in his career, with 30 of them before he turned 30 years old and 31 after that.

Now with five goals in his first three Saudi Pro League appearances, it seems that Ronaldo is back to his old ways and is set to make a significant impact in the league.
