A video of Cristiano Ronaldo meeting Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe has gone popular on social media.

Paris Saint-Germain, a French club, posted the little video on their official Twitter account on Thursday.

It should be mentioned that Ronaldo bounced back from a headbutt to score twice against Paris Saint-Germain in a spirited reunion with his great adversary Messi, who scored the game’s first goal. This showed the financial might of the resource-rich Gulf.

Ronaldo, 37, was decked by PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas’s flailing fist but he drilled the next penalty and then scored another in a 5-4 exhibition defeat, his first appearance since moving to Saudi Arabia.

Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar all scored for Qatar-owned PSG, but Neymar missed a penalty, and at the hour mark, they all left the game, along with Ronaldo, who was playing for a combined Saudi team, leaving the four highest-paid athletes in the world to watch from the sidelines in Riyadh.

For the exhibition game in the Saudi capital, which took place just weeks after neighbouring Qatar lavishly spent on the first World Cup on Arab territory, won by Messi’s Argentina, there were footballers worth hundreds of millions of euros on display.

The 69,000-seat King Fahd Stadium was filled with spectators, including a Saudi real estate tycoon who bid $2.6 million at auction for a ticket that allowed him access to the players’ locker rooms.

It was Ronaldo’s first game in the oil-rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr for more than 200 million euros, will make his Saudi Pro League debut on Sunday.

According to a source who spoke to AFP, the seasoned Portuguese player will receive an additional 200 million euros for serving as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s anticipated joint World Cup hosting bid with Egypt and Greece in 2030.
