Cristiano Ronaldo scored all four goals for Al Nassr as they defeated Al Wehda in the Saudi Pro League, silencing fans who recently jeered him with shouts of ‘Messi, Messi’.

Ronaldo has faced criticism in recent months for a single goal in his final Premier League season, an unsanctioned interview with Piers Morgan, and a lone penalty at the World Cup while Lionel Messi won it with Argentina. When he moved to Al Nassr, his €200 million a year contract was seen as much about the profile he could bring to Saudi Arabian football off the field as the goals he might score on it. After being met with jeers of ‘Messi, Messi’ in a previous match, Ronaldo has now re-found his scoring touch with a penalty in a 2-2 draw and four goals in Al Nassr’s 4-0 victory over Al Wehda. As always, fans on Twitter have weighed in on the ongoing debate about who is the greatest footballer of all time.
