CRISTIANO RONALDO nearly knocked a cameraman out with a freekick that went wayward during Al-Nassr’s match with Al-Raed.
Formerly known as a freekick master, the superstar is now famous for kicking wildly at a target other than the net.
Ronaldo was lining up for the free kick from outside the zone and had six men to lift it.
His shot went past the goalpost despite his best efforts to defeat Al-Raed’s Andre Moreira.
Unluckily for an innocent photographer behind the goal the ball appeared to hit him in the face.
His balance was not affected and, as a result, he continued to do his job.
Some joked about Ronaldo’s deliberate misstep.
On social media, they claimed that the man who was once a Real Madrid employee was targeting the cameraman because he is a Lionel Messi supporter.
A person said, “A plot twist: the cameraman yelled Messi was the GOD”
A third person added, “The Cameraman supported Messi. Messi deserves everything he has.”

The Al-Nassr Captain and his team had a great day, despite Ronaldo’s missed shot.
Ronaldo was on the scoresheet along with Sadio Mane, Talisca and other players.
