Hakimi’s club won last week’s exhibition match against Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2 goals for the Saudis, Hakimi teammates secured a 5-4 victory.

The Joy Awards are considered one of the largest ceremonies to honour artistic achievements of the Arab world, featuring more than 13 awards that are handed to nominated female and male celebrities.

The event is hosted by the General Entertainment Authority in line with the goals of Saudi Vision 2030.
