Mbappe’s response to Ronaldo’s face swelling.
On the morning of January 20, during a friendly match between PSG and Riyadh All-Stars, the 37-year-old attacker was found lying in the yard following an aerial altercation with Keylor Navas.
Cristiano Ronaldo leapt high to receive the ball from the right flank in the 31st minute. Additionally, Keylor Navas emerged and unintentionally struck a former Real Madrid teammate in the face with his forearm.
Ronaldo had to lie down on the field for a while because he was in discomfort. Although the striker, 37, did not have an injury, a lump did appear on the left side of his face.
Navas took the effort to offer Ronaldo his apology. Additionally, CR7 avoided being critical of his old teammate from Costa Rica.
Kylian Mbappe politely enquired of Ronaldo. The striker, who was born in 1998, is not ashamed to declare that he admires the Portuguese national team captain.
Ronaldo had been fouled, the official found. The Riyadh All-Stars were given a penalty while the former Real Madrid goalkeeper was given a yellow card. Ronaldo had a chance to score a 1-1 goal from 11 meters away, but he did not waste it.
The King Fahd Stadium crowd cheered as Ronaldo imitated the trademark celebration. Prior to that, Lionel Messi gave PSG the lead with an assist from Neymar that involved rushing and a cunning finish.
Ronaldo scored once more for the Riyadh All-Stars in the last seconds of the first half to tie the game at 2-2. Header by CR7 struck post. While standing directly in front of the goal, Sergio Ramos missed, which gave Ronaldo the opportunity to strike Navas’ goal twice.
Messi and Ronaldo each played 60 minutes. PSG ultimately defeated Riyadh All Stars 5-4. Ronaldo won the award for best player after scoring two goals in the opening period.
