Dubbed ‘the last dance’: Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo to battle each other one last time

Football legends Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will battle it out for what might be their last game against each other.

Dubbed ‘the last dance’, the Real Madrid and Barcelona legends will face each other once again when Inter Miami and Al Nassr meet in a friendly in Saudi Arabia in February.

Messi currently features for MLS side Inter Miami, while Ronaldo plays for Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr.

The friendly is set to take place at King Fahd Stadium, and has been promoted alongside a historic boxing bout.

Inter Miami vs Al-Nassr will take place the same month as the historic heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk which was confirmed last week.

A statement from Turki Alalshikh, chairman of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority, said: “We look forward to welcoming everyone from Inter Miami in February for the Riyadh Season Cup, which will bring together a number of the biggest international stars from across all three clubs competing.

“The excitement and global interest that we expect this tournament to generate expands upon one of our main aspirations for Riyadh Season – to create international events that visitors to Riyadh and fans around the world can all enjoy.”
