Ronaldo’s disallowed target in opposition to Serbia unfortunately wasn’t the primary time he have been denied a target for Portugal, and a impressive one at that.
Cristiano Ronaldo used to be denied a target within the loss of life moments of Portugal’s 2-2 draw in opposition to Serbia on Saturday evening.
The 36-year-old idea he had gained the International Cup qualifier for his nation all through injury-time. He latched onto a go within the field and poked the ball previous Serbia keeper Marko Dmitrovic against the empty target.
However because the ball perceived to go the goal-line, it used to be cleared and the referee, Danny Makkelie, waved for play to proceed – a lot to Ronaldo’s utter disbelief.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s shot used to be in however there’s no goal-line era from football
Unfortunately, despite the fact that, this isn’t the primary time a loss of goal-line era has price him.
Ronaldo scored an excellent bicycle-kick in a Ecu qualifier in opposition to Azerbaijan in October 2006. It used to be a wonderful effort, one who any most sensible goalscorer could be proud to say, and one who shouldn’t were dominated out.
Replays obviously confirmed the ball had crossed the road sooner than it bounced off the highest bar and into the Azerbaijan keeper’s arms.
Ronaldo will hope for higher good fortune in Portugal’s subsequent International Cup qualifier in opposition to Luxembourg on Tuesday evening sooner than he stories again to Juventus.
