1200 milestones!Ronaldo sparked controversy: he was cleared by the goal line and raised his hands to make a crazy point to sarcastically mock the referee
On December 9, Beijing time, in the 16th round of the Saudi League, Riyadh Victory played against Riyadh Sports, Ronaldo's shot was cleared by the goal line, and he raised his hands to ask for a penalty, but unfortunately he failed to do so.
In the group stage of the AFC Champions League in midweek, because Riyadh Victory had already qualified in advance, Ronaldo got a rare opportunity to rest and did not enter the squad. However, back in the league, the president immediately returned to the starting line-up as captain and centre-forward.
This is the first time in Ronaldo's career against Riyadh Sporting, and it is the 1,200th game of his career, which is the most non-goalkeeper players in world football.
At the beginning of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo, wearing a new white jersey, broke the ball and plugged it straight, Fofana crossed, and Mane scored a goal but unfortunately was offside.
In the 12th minute, a teammate crossed a corner kick, and the president stopped the ball on the left side of the penalty area and volleyed with his right foot, which was cleared by the goal line of Birama Toure!
However, the referee went to the sidelines to watch the VAR and did not award a penalty. Judging from the slow-motion replay, the ball seemed to hit Toure's ribs, and the goalkeeper seemed to pounce on the ball first and then bounce back to Toure, so there was no problem not awarding a penalty. Ronaldo pointed to his eyes and sarcastically mocked the referee.
