In a friendly match played in Riyadh, Al-Nassr gave a masterclass and defeated Inter Miami 6-0 in a football spectacular dubbed “The Last Dance.”
Because of their long-standing rivalry, the highly anticipated match between the teams of two football legends, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, was dubbed “The Last Dance.” Ronaldo was not allowed to participate in the Last Dance, though, as Al-Nassr’s manager, Luis Castro made that decision.
Messi played just seven minutes on the pitch while Ronaldo was out with an injury.
Es extraño ver ambos fuera de un campo de juego, mientras observan a sus equipos.

Al-Nassr did not take long to establish their superiority, with Talisca, a Brazilian, taking centre stage with an amazing hat trick. The Saudi Pro League team showed their mettle right away, scoring three goals in the first twelve minutes to take a commanding lead.
Miami attempted to play from the back but lost possession. Otavio then opened the score with a well-placed strike.
The difference in skill level became more and more apparent as Talisca took advantage of Miami’s defensive errors and converted a penalty kick to score his second goal after the break. With a magnificent long-range free kick that left Miami custodian Drake Calender stranded far from his line, Aymeric Laporte enhanced the show.
With a celebration evoking Ronaldo’s famous “Siu,” Talisca accomplished his treble while the scoreboard gave Inter Miami a dismal picture.
The cordial exchange revealed Miami’s uncooked condition. Messi’s Inter Miami has an arduous tour of Asia ahead of them to wrap up preseason training.
In contrast, Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr will play a friendly match against rivals Al-Hilal prior to a pivotal AFC Champions League quarterfinal match against Al Feiha of Saudi Arabia.
