Al Shorta forward Ahmed Zeero has taken to Instagram to post a selfie with Cristiano Ronaldo alongside the caption: "With the second best player in history".
The 20-year-old Iraq international stood next to Ronaldo on Wednesday night after Iraqi Premier League side Al Shorta suffered a 1-0 defeat against Al Nassr in the Arab Club Champions Cup.
A late penalty from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner handed the Saudi Pro League side a place in Saturday's final, where they will come up against bitter rivals Al Hilal at the King Fahd Stadium.
Ronaldo, who has scored in each of his last four matches in the Arab Club Champions Cup, will be looking to extend that streak this weekend.
Zeero, meanwhile, will likely have to sift through thousands of notifications after the winger decided to upload a selfie with the former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward.
Shortly after Wednesday's full-time whistle, he uploaded a selfie with Ronaldo alongside the caption: "With the second best player in history".
Soon, a flurry of Lionel Messi GIF's would flood the Instagram post from Zeero, who has made five appearances in this summer's tournament, according to 365scores.
Last month, Ronaldo publicly declared that the Saudi Pro League is "better" than Major League Soccer, and will soon surpass the Turkish and Dutch leagues.
A number of top names have moved to Saudi Arabia this summer, including Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, Sergej Milinkovic Savic and Roberto Firmino.
"The Saudi league is better than the MLS," Ronaldo told reports after Al Nassr's 5-0 defeat against Celta Vigo.
"I'm 100 per cent sure I won't return to any European club. They criticised me for coming to Saudi league, but what happened now? I opened the way to the Saudi league and now all the players are coming here.
