Samba star Neymar (32, Al Hilal) finally debuted in the Saudi Arabian professional soccer league.
It was the 2023-2024 Saudi League home game against Ariyadh held at Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh on the 15th 메이저사이트(local time).
Neymar, who did not start but stayed on the bench, was substituted for Brazilian Michael Delgado in the 19th minute of the second half, and was involved in three goals, including assisting Malcolm’s goal in the 38th minute of the second half, contributing to Al Hilal’s 6-1 win.
In the 42nd minute of the second half, Neymar handled the ball on the left side of the penalty area and induced a handball foul by the opposing defense, resulting in a penalty kick.
However, he did not take the kicker, and captain Salem Al-Dausari converted the penalty kick. Fans mocked the captain for being the kicker instead of Neymar. Al Hilal led the league with 5 wins and 1 draw.
Neymar left Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) last month and transferred to Al Hilal for 90 million euros (127.8 billion won).
