OSPINA AND EL PITY INCLUDED: The 6 internationally known players who will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s teammates at Al Nassr

Al Nasser It is a club that has been trying to build a squad with important players for some time. For this reason, Cristiano Ronaldo will not reach a squad made up of pure local talents. In fact, The bug You will have companions that many of you surely remember.

The Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, the Argentine midfielder Gonzalo Martínez and the Cameroonian striker Vincent Aboubakar are the most recognized colleagues of the new team of CR7. But not the only ones.

Also on the roster are Brazilians Luiz Gustavo and Talisca. And one cannot fail to mention Álvaro González, a Spanish defender who had a respectable stint in the Spanish League and French Ligue 1.


  • David Ospina (Colombia). Goalie. 34 years. Experience in Colombia, France, England and Italy. South American history. Undisputed legend of Colombia. He is, in fact, the player with the most appearances in the entire history of the coffee team. A guarantee under sticks.
  • Gonzalo Martinez (Argentina). Half Point. 29 years. Being at the top, he is a special player, a different one. Before arriving in Saudi Arabia, he was in the United States, but his best period was at River Plate, where he practically won everything, including that magical Copa Libertadores against Boca Juniors in Madrid 2018. Due to characteristics (he generating and Cris solving), he could complement each other very well with Cristiano Ronaldo.
  • Vincent Aboubakar (Cameroon). Center forward. 30 years. He comes from having a very good World Cup with the Cameroon National Team in Qatar 2022. He stood out in France and Turkey. However, we remember his stage in Porto more. He is a powerful, strong, fast striker with a very good passing game. The place where he goes, the place where he meets good goalscoring quotas.
  • Luiz Gustavo (Brazil). Midfielder. 35 years. Like Cristiano, he made the decision to go to Arabia to enjoy his last years as a professional. In his prime, he left his mark in Germany. He won everything with Bayern Munich, although his best years, in individual terms, came at Wolfsburg and Olympique Marseille. A versatile midfielder who, in addition to helping a lot in recovery and positioning work, knows how to handle the ball. He plays well short and long, being important to control games and direct attacks.
  • Talisca (Brazil). Midfielder or second attacker. 28 years. When we met him at Benfica, we believed that he had the capacity to build a significant career in the elite. He is very good, but he chose a path of exotic destinations. After responding with Turkey’s Besiktas, he decided to say yes to Al Nassr, where he has become a figure. He is fast, he is skilful, he has improved a lot associatively and, without being a 9 finisher, he has a fluid relationship with the goal.
  • Alvaro Gonzalez (Spain). Center defender. 32 years. They took him because they consider that he has the leadership and personality to be one of the pillars. He is a strong defender, who goes to the limit in every 1 vs 1 and who does not hesitate to go into discussions with anyone who crosses his path (he had problems with Messi and Neymar, for example). In addition, he has a good sense to anticipate and is not an impediment to initiate exits. He eyed the long strokes of his.

Undefeated Data. Al Nassr has won the Saudi Arabian First Division 9 times. It is the second most winning club in the country. It is surpassed by Al Hilal (18).

Did you know…? Al Nasser has never been able to win the Asian Champions League. His best performance was in 1995 when they finished second.
