Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly congratulated his Al-Nassr teammate Abdulrahman Ghareeb for performing well for Saudi Arabia. In the ongoing AFC Asian Cup 2024, Saudi Arabia was up against Oman in their first match. Ghareeb came in as a substitute and changed the course of the match. According to reports, Ronaldo sent his wishes to Ghareeb for his performance against Oman in the match.

Abdulrahman Ghareeb entered the game in the 75th minute. Until then, Oman was dominating the match, having scored a goal. Saudi Arabia realized that the match was slipping away from their hands. Hence, Ghareeb was substituted in the 75th minute of the game, hoping to have a better impact. And he did turn the match around by himself! Just three minutes after entering the pitch, Ghareeb made his way through the midfield and helped himself to score a goal.

It was the turning point in the match. There was a shift in momentum as Ghareeb claimed the equalizer for his side. The match saw Saudi Arabia’s control after that. They played better as a side, and Ghareeb had a huge impact on it with his play in the middle. The scoreline was 1-1 at the end of full time. Hence, the match was extended for 6 minutes due to time-wasting. The match between the two sides approached a thrilling end.

A journalist named Mohamed Alkoud claimed that Ronaldo congratulated Abdul with a private message. He asserted that Ghareeb was happy after seeing the message from his Al-Nassr teammate.

“Abdul Rahman Gharib, the Saudi national team player, was surprised by a private message on his phone from his captain in the Al-Nassr team, Cristiano Ronaldo, congratulating him on the ‘wonderful’ goal he scored against the Oman national team in the Asian Cup, and assuring him that he expects more from him in the upcoming matches,” wrote Alkoud, speaking to X.
