Cristiano Ronaldo came up clutch yet again with a huge goal for Al Nassr against Egyptian side Zamalek in the Arab Club Champions Cup.
Al Nassr, who handed a debut to new signing Sadio Mane in the second half, found themselves 1-0 down after Ahmed Sayed converted a penalty in the 53rd minute.
But with three minutes of normal time remaining, captain Ronaldo popped up with a crucial equaliser in the final Group C fixture.
With Al Nassr on their way out from the competition, the ball was whipped in to the far post from the left flank from Ghislain Konan and the five-time Ballon d'Or winner headed home with aplomb as he has done on so many occasions.

Al Nassr finished second in Group C on five points as a result, one point ahead of Zamalek and two behind group winners Al Shabab.
