The photo-journalist alleges that Ronaldo’s tears after the miss was all an act and a psychological tactic by the 5-time golden ball win to steal the game from the Slovenians.

According to Pooja, Ronaldo did this to ease Slovenia’s goalie, Oblak and his teammates into the game with faux confidence of having the edge over Portugal.

With full confidence, Pooja alleges this allows Slovenia to undermine Portugal’s capabilities in stealing the tie.

A psychological game play, Pooja insists as he hails the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner.

However, Pooja’s theory is a little too far-fetched there knowing the personality of Cristiano Ronaldo and his passion for winning.

The Portugal captain crying or not, converting his spot kick would have given the former European Champions the advantage without pushing the game to penalty kicks.
