Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr will face Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami in a friendly in February next year.
The game which is billed as ‘The Last Dance’ is likely to be the final match-up between two of the all-time greats of the sport.
Messi, now 36, made a name for himself playing his football mostly at Barcelona while Ronaldo, 38, hit similar heights at rivals Real Madrid, after moving from Manchester United in 2009.
Messi was targeted by the Saudi league and widely expected to follow Ronaldo there this year, before ultimately deciding to join David Beckham’s Major League Soccer team. Ronaldo signed for Al Nassr in December 2022 following a bitter split from United in his second spell at the club.
Neymar Jr’s team, Al Hilal, will also be part of the three-team tournament, although the Brazilian will not be able to play due to injury.
