Official: Ronaldo debuts in Saudi Arabia against Messi – Football World – France

PSG announced a tour of the Arab world on January 18 and 19. The French champion will first travel to Doha to meet his fans in the country. Christophe Galtier’s team will hold a training session at the Khalifa Stadium, and will also take part in a number of activities in the Qatari capital.

The “princes” will then head to Riyadh. There they will take part in a match with a combined team of the stars of the giants of Saudi Arabia – Al Nasser and Al Hilal. The match will take place at the King Fahd Stadium on January 19, the French club confirmed.

It is expected that Cristiano Ronaldo will record his first minutes in Saudi Arabia in this match. The Portuguese signed for Al Nasser, but his debut has been delayed for now as the team had problems with his carding and he is also serving a two-match ban.

This means that the 37-year-old striker will once again face his great rival in recent years, Lionel Messi.

Andersson Talisca, David Ospina, Luis Gustavo, Odion Ighalo and Moussa Marega will also be part of the national team.
