Published

on

The Saudi Pro League is humming with activity after an opulent summer of moves, as high-profile players make their mark in the Middle East. In this feature, we dig into the enthralling race for the Golden Boot, spotlighting the spectacular performances that have lit up the league.

Leading the charge is the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo, who has taken the Saudi football scene by storm with his stellar performances for Al-Nassr. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been nothing short of sensational, notching an impressive 13 goals in just 12 appearances. Ronaldo’s goal-scoring spree includes a memorable hat-trick against Al-Fateh in August and a crucial brace against title rivals Al-Ahli the following month. Adding to his prolific goal tally, Ronaldo boasts an equally impressive seven assists, sharing the top spot in the division.

Hot on Ronaldo’s heels is the Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who seamlessly adapted to Saudi Arabian football after joining Al-Hilal from Fulham in August. With 10 goals in 11 league appearances, Mitrovic has become an integral part of the current league leaders. His standout moment came in a thrilling encounter against Al-Ittihad, where he netted a memorable hat-trick to secure a priceless 4-3 victory.

The goal-scoring prowess doesn’t stop there, as Brazilian maestro Anderson Talisca and French star Karim Benzema are in hot pursuit, both tied with 8 goals each. Talisca faced a setback at the beginning of the season, missing four of Al-Nassr’s initial five games due to injury. However, the Brazilian has made a triumphant return to full fitness, making a resounding impact on the league.

As the Saudi Pro League unfolds, the race for the Golden Boot promises to be a thrilling spectacle, with international football icons showcasing their skills and making a lasting imprint on the vibrant football landscape of the Middle East.

Super Falcons Shouldn’t Be Judged By Friendly Game Loss To Canada —Udeze

Published

on

Former Super Eagles defender Ifeanyi Udeze has said the Super Falcons should not be judged by their loss to Canada in a test game.

The Falcons continued their preparations for this summer’s Olympics in Paris with a test game with reigning women’s Olympic champions Canada.
After 90 minutes the Falcons lost 1-0 to the Canadians, who they held to a goalless draw in the group stage at the 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup.

Despite the defeat, Udeze played it down, positing the test game is not enough to judge how the Falcons would perform in Paris.
“We have a tournament ahead of us, the Olympic Games, and we shouldn’t use the friendly to judge them. Let’s give them the benefit of doubt,” Udeze said on Brila.

The Falcons are in the same group with world champions Spain, two-time Olympic silver medal winners Brazil and former World Cup winners Japan.
The nine-time African champions will open their campaign against Brazil, who they lost 3-1 to in the group stage at the Beijing Olympics.

This would be the fourth time the Falcons would feature at the Olympics, after debuting at Sydney 2000.
