Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal in the Asian Champions League in Al-Nassr's 3-1 win over Istiklol on Monday to shift attention back to soccer after an earlier match between Sepahan of Iran and Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad was controversially canceled, reports AP.

The Saudi club did not take to the field at Naghsh-e-Jahan Stadium in Isfahan because of busts of Gen. Qassem Soleimani - who commanded Iran's elite Quds Force before he was killed in a U.S. drone strike in neighboring Iraq in January 2020 - and other political banners, Saudi Arabia's Al Ekhbariya TV reported.
