The meeting between Al-Nassr and Inter Miami was supposed to be the last dance between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, it ultimately turned into a nightmare for the Argentinian (6-0). It all started when the Saudi club announced that Cristiano Ronaldo would not start. The wait immediately went down a notch.
The Argentinian, who started on the bench, could only watch his team suffer the wrath of the Saudi attack, including a goal from elsewhere from Aymeric Laporte. When the Ballon d'Or finally came into play (6-0, 84th), the opposing supporters and managers did not miss the opportunity to remind him of the score, in case he had forgotten it. Turki Alalsuhikh, a close associate of the royal family and the president of the General Sports Authority, looked at Messi and, knowing he was on the stadium's giant screen, pointed to the number six with both hands.
MMA champion Francis Ngannou and those present in the stands laughed heartily. When he left PSG, Lionel Messi was contacted by numerous teams in Saudi Arabia before heading to Florida. A decision that the Saudi leaders do not seem to have appreciated.
