Cristiano Ronaldo scored the goal in the 54th minute of Portugal versus Uruguay game but the goal was subsequently awarded to teammate Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes got the ball out wide and whipped ball into Ronaldo. Portugal forward didn’t appear to get a touch before it flew into the net, but that didn’t stop him from running off to celebrate the goal.

However, fans started trolling Ronaldo for his action. Here is how social media reacted to the incident:

One fan said “Ronaldo should have the ball tested for his hairspray,” while another noted, “What’s snicko saying on that ‘Ronaldo’ goal?”

One more tweeted, “Ronaldo was celebrating with passion because he was happy for Bruno.” While another stated, “BREAKING NEWS….Ronaldo has also claimed the ‘Hand of God’ goal at Mexico 1986.” Another quipped, “Ronaldo is humble he gave his goal to Bruno.”

Ronaldo ended his relationship with Manchester United by
mutual consent last week, following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.
He has moved fully to international mode and is aiming to break multiple World
Cup records.
