Cristiano Ronaldo scored superb 40-yard lob as the Portugal star's brace helped Al-Nassr secure a 3-0 victory at home to Al-Akhdoud.

Ronaldo returned to action after international duty with Portugal and made an impact as he led his side to victory.

A goal from Sami Al-Naji had put Al-Nassr in front in the 13th minute in the Saudi Pro League match.

Al-Nassr had to wait until the 77th minute to make it 2-0, with Ronaldo controlling the ball impressively before taking a touch to create space for himself and then finding the net from a difficult angle.

Ronaldo's second goal and Al-Nassr's third was even more impressive as he took advantage of Al-Akhdoud goalkeeper Paulo Vitor being off his line and proceeded to find the net from distance with an excellent lob. 

Following their victory Al-Nassr are in second place in Saudi Pro League, one point behind leaders Al-Hilal, who have a game in hand as they host Al-Hazm away on Saturday.

Ronaldo's brace continued his excellent season so far - he has now scored 15 goals in 13 league appearances.

Al-Nassr's next game sees them play Persepolis on Monday in the AFC Champions League. They then return to league action with an away game against Al-Hilal which should be an entertaining encounter.  

Former Liverpool winger Sadio Mane was an unused substitute for Al-Nassr against Al-Akhdoud after returning from international duty with Senegal. 

Ronaldo's first goal of the game was also of a high standard as he scored from a difficult angle
