Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted following his dramatic scenes against Serbia in a World Cup Qualifying clash. The Portuguese captain is not often seen making scenes like the one he pulled against Serbia on Saturday night after the referee’s controversial decision to overrule his goal.
Ronaldo couldn’t believe his bad luck after getting a goal disallowed because VAR isn’t there to help out. As we previously reported, the replay shows that the ball definitely crossed the goal line after Cristiano’s shot. There is no other way to dispute this, even the Serbia players have to agree after watching the video.
However, Cristiano broke the Internet when he took the captain’s armband and threw it on the ground. Meanwhile, there are Portugal supporters who didn’t like what they saw from their biggest legend. In their view, the European leading international goalscorer was supposed to keep his cool but his reaction was in the heat of the moment. After several minutes of reflection, Ronaldo finally came out to react to what just happened.
Cristiano Ronaldo Explains The Reason Behind His Dramatic Scenes
Via Instagram, Cristiano Ronaldo shared a picture of his squad and wrote the following message: “Being captain of the Portugal team is one of the greatest pride and privileges of my life. I always give and will give everything for my country. That will never change. But there are difficult times to deal with, especially when we feel that an entire nation is being harmed.”
“Lift your head and face the next challenge now! Let’s go, Portugal!”
Ronaldo and his Portugal side will have to travel to Luxembourg next for their third World Cup Qualifier. Despite Serbia’s dramatic scenes were deeply frustrating for his country, they still have to think about the next match they will play.
