Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane embrace Saudi Arabian culture in traditional attire and fencing

Cristiano Ronaldo and his Al-Nassr teammates appeared in a new video wearing traditional Saudi attire and wielding swords. 

Ronaldo, 38, only moved to Saudi Arabia in December last year, but has already adapted easily to life in the Middle East.

The striker scored seven goals in the first five matches of the Saudi Pro League season and won the Golden Boot in winning the Arab Club Champions Cup.

The Portuguese star, along with teammates like Sadio Mane and Talisca, appeared in traditional Saudi attire as they danced at the end of the video.

Cristiano Ronaldo starred in a new video posted to Al-Nassr’s social media account

In the video, Ronaldo and teammates including Sadio Mane (R) appear in traditional Saudi attire ahead of Saudi National Day on September 23.

The clip, posted on Al-Nassr’s social media account, shows three children roaming the club’s stadium and spotting several stars involved in traditional activities.

At the end of the video, Ronaldo appears – alongside Mane – in a black bisht and white thobe, while the former Liverpool star wore a gold bisht with a white thobe.

Players such as Marcelo Brozovic, Otavio, Talisca and Alex Telles also appeared in the video. 

The video’s caption on Twitter was: ‘All together. 

For a flag. 

We Dream, and Achieve’ with several emojis following. 

With Saudi National Day on Saturday, the video is likely to be linked to celebrations taking place over the weekend. 

Al-Nassr were one of the few teams not in action on Thursday night as part of a busy schedule of Saudi Pro League games. 

That night, N’Golo Kante opened his Al-Ittihad goalscoring account in emphatic fashion after scoring a long-range goal in Thursday night’s 2-1 league win. 

The French midfielder, who secured a free transfer to the Saudi team in June, was the important winner for his team against Al Fateh FC.

Kante, 32, received the ball on the edge of the box just before half-time before firing a shot at goal that hit the post and flew into the net. 

Still in the championship, Neymar and Al-Hilal drew 1-1 with Damac FC. 

The former Barcelona and PSG star failed to make a difference for his team after goals from Nicolae Stanciu and Malcom. 

In perhaps the most exciting match of the night, former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum scored two goals as Al-Ettifaq won 4-3 over Al Taee.
