Now what happens when they get a penalty again? Who takes it?
Can Pellistri prove himself in those cup gamesThe early kick-off set the tone, South Korea v Ghana with the best game in this edition thus far and two stellar performances by our guys in the latter two games (and a special mention to Pellistri) capped off an enjoyable World Cup matchday. Sunday was really good, too. It's picking up!
We know Ronaldo is your hero and how he did nothing wrong. Hope he goes home and makes you happy.It probably did skim his hair so he thought he had something on it.
You guys are just being so petty saying he’s mad, the man does not care. He has said it himself he can score 0 goals this tournament and Portugal win the WC and he will be the happiest he’s ever been.
Truth be told he’s looked better in these two games then any game for United this season, his attitude looks completely different because he finally looks happy. He clearly still has game and had direct influence in the opening goal
I think the intent is lunging yourself wildly at the ball and making a hash of it. If it flicks off some other part of your body first (e.g. Martinez against Sociedad) then it's absolutely unfortunate. But in this case he would have denied a clear goal-scoring opportunity after a great bit of skill, having been completely done. I view it as mistiming a tackle.Intent has always been a massive part of the handball rule, and in cases like the one we’ve just seen there was zero intent to handle the ball. Giving handball makes a mockery of the game.
From fairly certain to hard to be certain. There's no replay or image in which its certain or even remotely certain he touched it.
Found the video btw. He was literally laughing at the whole thing.If you have a replay option, just watch the game from after the celebration. The next two minutes till Darwin takes the ball from his feet when he is about to shoot will show you.
Don’t have replays here unfortunately

There is no video or still photo that shows Ronaldo’s hair being touched by or in any way flicking the ball. And in fact every video shows that the ball did not change direction even in the slightest.
You can’t give the benefit of the doubt to Ronaldo just because you didn’t see what he claims happened. That’s ridiculous. There’s people with bets etc riding on that
Love it whenever stuff like this comes upThere are rumors that Vlahovic fecked Rajkovic's, his teammate, wife, everyone hates him there now and that is why he is not playing, basically atmosphere is shite. I can see easy Switzerland win if that is the case.
There is some serious smoke about this though, lots of sources in some Serbian circles confirming this, not just random drop info. Apparently, Rajković follows every lad in national team except Vlahović on Twitter(or was it Instagram) also.Love it whenever stuff like this comes up
To my memory the only confirmed such incident was Lentini, who actually destroyed his career by getting in a serious car accident driving up to screw his teammates' wife
"Even Bruno agrees". Yeah, in that "FFS, please shut the feck up about it. Yes, whatever, it was your goal, fine. Jeeeeesus Christ." kind of way.https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/cristiano-ronaldo-piers-morgan-portugal-28607352
What a good teammate Ronaldo is.
