Kylian Mbappe examines Cristiano Ronaldo's big face bruise after shattering strike.
After delivering a crushing punch to Cristiano Ronaldo’s face, Kylian Mbappe examines the enormous welt that resulted from the collision.

On Thursday evening, thousands of supporters gathered in Riyadh to get up close and personal with Cristiano Ronaldo, but Kylian Mbappe got the finest view of the striker’s significant bruise on his face.

Ronaldo, who is 37 years old, was left with a shiner on his cheek following a crunching contact with Keylor Navas during Paris Saint-friendly Germain’s with a Saudi Arabian All-Star XI in Riyadh. The collision occurred during PSG’s match against the Saudi Arabian All-Star XI.

Although it appeared that neither the striker nor the goalie made contact with a deep free kick in the 32nd minute, Ronaldo collided with Navas’ elbow as he sought to punch the ball. This occurred despite the fact that the ball was in play.

In spite of the fact that the Al-Nassr newboy was left lying in a heap on the ground, it came as something of a surprise to see a penalty given for the event.

Ronaldo appeared to be in pain as he took the penalty kick and scored the winning goal.

Mbappe, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, was photographed shortly after the incident taking a close look at the bruise and expressing sympathy for his injured opponent.

Ronaldo scored another goal in the first half, this time with a header that hit the post before he put away the rebound. It is evident that the injury had little effect on Ronaldo’s performance, as he scored again.

At the hour mark of an exciting exhibition match in Riyadh, which PSG eventually won 5-4, Ronaldo and Mbappe, along with Neymar and Lionel Messi, were taken off the field and replaced by other players.
