As expected, Cristiano Ronaldo made the headlines against Uruguay with his celebration of Bruno Fernandes goal.
Bruno Fernandes, a midfielder for Portugal and Manchester United, stated that he thought Cristiano Ronaldo actually scored Portugal’s opening goal in their 2-0 victory over Uruguay on Monday.
The striker continues to believe Ronaldo touched the ball, and he claims he made a big contact to steer the ball into the goal.
Portugal won 2-0 at the Lusail Stadium to secure their spot in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar.
The former Red Devils teammate of the Manchester United player claimed he was actually passing the ball to him, and he thinks the 37-year-old must have touched it.
Ronaldo was not touched, according to the official scorers, and Fernandes was awarded the goal.
After the game, Fernandes said:
“It seemed to me that he had touched the ball, my objective was to make a cross for him. We know that Cristiano is a striker who looks for goals and is more significant for the strikers.”
