The Portugal vs Spain duel was held at Estadio Jose Alvalede, Thursday (8/10/2020) in the morning WIB. It is a friendly match, but both teams still field their top players.
The match also brought Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos together. The two of them are rumored to have a friendship that has existed since they were at Real Madrid from 2009 to 2018.
After Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus in 2018, there were rumors of his relationship with Sergio Ramos, who is still the commander of El Real’s defensive line. But the success stories of the past while still working together seem to make this reunion moment seem to run warm.
In that match, Cristiano Ronaldo down since the early minutes. He appeared for more than 70 minutes, until finally he was pulled out in the 73rd minute to be replaced by Joao Felix. He was unable to break into the Spanish goal, with this match ending 0-0.
Interestingly, Ronaldo was caught on camera getting angry at referee Paolo Valeri at the end of the first half. Fanpage.it said, it was because the Italian court man sounded the final whistle of the first half 8 seconds earlier!
In his frustration, Cristiano Ronaldo was seen shouting at the referee from afar. His hand gesture then points to the scoreboard, which also brings up the timing of the match, and raises both hands in disbelief that the first half is over. The expression on his face confirmed that. Subsequent hand movements indicated the Juventus player believed there should still be extra time.
However, referee Valeri remained in his decision. Cristiano Ronaldo did not hide his disappointment from his expression.
GiveMeSport said, CR7 is one of two players (apart from Zlatan Ibrahimovic) in football history who has scored a goal in every minute of normal time, from the first minute to the 90th minute. Maybe that’s what makes me Cristiano Ronaldo protest after referee Paolo Valeri sounded the final whistle of the first half faster, even though it was only 8 seconds apart.
