Ronaldo scores winner in Saudi Arabia, says league is improving

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo helped Al-Nassr keep its Saudi Arabian title hopes alive by scoring the winning goal in a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Al-Shabab. If second-place Al-Nassr had lost the Riyadh derby then leader Al-Ittihad would have been crowned champion with two games of the season remaining. It was the Portugal star’s 14th goal since joining after the World Cup.
