Real Madrid’s soccer star, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to champion the conservation of mangroves in Indonesia, the Artha Graha Peduli Foundation announced today.
The Foundation named Ronaldo, Ambassador for the Bali – based Forum Peduli Mangrove (Mangrove Care Forum).
The Forum Peduli Mangrove is supported by five Community Empowerment Organisations from regencies at the southern part of Benoa Bay in Bali. The Forum, to be launched in the next two months, aims to raise public awareness of the importance of conserving mangrove forests, encourage community action to clean and preserve them, and restore the biodiversity of the mangrove ecosystem.
BARCELONA—Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo duelled to an entertaining stalemate on Sunday, with both superstars scoring twice as Barcelona drew 2-2 with Real Madrid.
The result ended Barcelona’s perfect start to the league campaign as it dropped points for the first time in seven games, but provided yet another memorable chapter in the rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo, the two biggest names in the sport.
“It should be prohibited to say which is the best in the world,” adrid coach Jose Mourinho said. “They are both from another planet.”
Ronaldo put Madrid ahead at Camp Nou stadium in the 23rd from a pass by Karim Benzema to extend his scoring streak in “clasico” matches to six.
Then it was Messi’s turn, as he took advantage of a defensive slip to tie it up for Barcelona in the 31st, before adding a second goal in the 61st with a perfect free kick from almost 25 yards out.
But as Barcelona looked to seal the result, Mesut Oezil unlocked Barcelona’s makeshift defensive line to set up Ronaldo to respond five minutes later and split the points.
It was, perhaps, a fitting end to the latest head-to-head duel between arguably the two best players in the world, who for the last two seasons have engaged in a two-way scoring race unlike anything the Spanish league has seen before. Messi and Ronaldo are the leading candidates for world player of the year, and both showed why on Sunday night.
Ronaldo added to his pair of hat tricks from the previous week, while Messi recorded his 17th career goal against Madrid, leaving him one short of equalling Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano’s record.
The two players lead the Spanish league with eight goals apiece through seven rounds.
Camp Nou was bedecked with independence flags and the game started with 90,000-plus fans holding up coloured cards to form a mosaic of the red-and-yellow Catalan flag before shouting “Independence!” in unison in the latest manifestations of the surge of separatist sentiment in the northwestern region of Spain.
But politics aside, the home fans quickly returned their attention to Barcelona’s thinned backline, which was without both centre backs Carles Puyol (elbow) and Gerard Pique (foot). To compensate, coach Tito Vilanova, in a minor susprise, left new signing Alex Song on the bench, and aligned Adriano alongside Javier Mascherano in the centre of his defence.
