Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi face each other again, Know HOW
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi could face each other in a friendly game between Al Nassr and Inter Miami
Recent news suggests that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi may play each other in a club friendly game in January. They are two of the best players in football history and we could see them in action once again. The two players’ rivalry came to an end when they left Europe. But spectators in China could get to see another exciting match between the face of the Saudi Pro League and the World Cup victor from Argentina.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – One Last Dance?
According to a recently circulated report on X (previously known as Twitter), Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr have been invited to take part in friendly matches. One would be in China and then two in unnamed Gulf nations in January. According to the source, the government will plan the friendly after the Saudi Pro League’s schedule is made public during the Asian Cup break.
There was a friendly match between Riyadh XI (Saudi Pro League All-Stars) and French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain in January of this year. That time, CR7 and La Pulga came up against one another. Now that Messi has joined Inter Miami of Major League Soccer, he has been in outstanding form for his new team.
A Chinese international marketing organisation is planning to host a friendly game between Inter Miami and Al-Nassr in China. This will pit renowned players Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo against one another. According to journalist Ali Alabdallh of the Al Bilad Daily, this could be a real possibility.
Apart from this game, there could also be another clash on the cards. The Saudi Pro League All-Stars could be facing Manchester City in January this year. This would be similar to their game against PSG in 2023.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi haven’t faced each in a while. The last time they tussled was when PSG faced the Saudi Pro League All-Stars. This could very well be the last time we see these two legends face each other. If this game were to go through, then expect tickets to be sold like hot cakes.
