Ronaldo rage at phantom Portugal goal

Cristiano Ronaldo was so furious after a Portugal winner wasn’t given against Serbia that he threw his captain’s armband to the ground.

There is no VAR in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and bizarrely goal-line technology is only used in stadiums that have already activated it.

That means some games can benefit from the technology we now take for granted and others do not.

Portugal had a 2-0 lead in Serbia through Diogo Jota’s brace, but fumbled it for a 2-2 draw.

Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic also saw red, but the controversy came at the 93rd minute.

Ronaldo had managed to beat the goalkeeper for a last-gasp 3-2 winner, and the ball seemed to cross the line completely before the desperate clearance.

However, the referee and linesman did not award the goal.

CR7 was so angry that he stormed off at the final whistle, throwing his captain’s armband to the floor in rage.

To make matters worse, Ronaldo was also then booked for his protests.
