Cristiano Ronaldo had a crazy 2023: Here is a Breakdown

In January, the renowned Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo transitioned to Al-Nassr and has since exhibited remarkable efficiency in his performance, both for his club and the national team throughout 2023.

Despite not competing in a top European league, Ronaldo’s statistical achievements in Saudi Arabia have been nothing short of extraordinary. He marked his 53rd goal of the year in a notable victory for Al-Nassr against Al-Ittihad, matching his personal best from 2017.

Ronaldo’s form extends to the international stage with Portugal, where he scored 10 goals this year, surpassed only by Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku. Notably proficient in penalties, Ronaldo successfully converted all 15 attempts this year. His performance in free-kicks has been impressive as well, with three successful attempts.

Remarkably, Ronaldo averages a goal contribution every 74.9 minutes, a testament to his consistent high standards. Additionally, his ability to assist teammates has been prominent, with a total of 15 assists in 2023, his highest since 2016.

Ronaldo’s prolific performance has elevated his career goal tally to 872. With his current form, surpassing 1000 career goals is a distinct possibility.

In 2023, Ronaldo aided Al-Nassr in securing the Arab Club Champions Cup, and eyes further triumphs next year, despite Al-Nassr trailing behind Al-Hilal in the Saudi Pro League. With Euro 2024 on the horizon, Ronaldo’s exceptional form makes him a key player to watch.
