A fan stormed the pitch to kiss Ronaldo
Portuguesel football star, Cristiano Ronaldo was given a kiss by a pitch invader during Portugal’s 3-0 defeat by Holland on Monday night.
Portugal lost the match by 3 goals to nil at the end of the match.
Portugal were already three goals down when Joao Cancelo received a second yellow card and was sent off during the friendly.
As the game was about to restart following Cancelo’s dismissal, a number of fans raced onto the pitch at Stade de Geneve in Switzerland.
One supporter – clearly very fond of Ronaldo – ran up to the Real Madrid star and planted a kiss on his left cheek.
Another fan tried to meet the Portugal star
Ronaldo looked nonplussed about the man’s gesture before he was substituted in the 67th minute – even then one fan tried to grab him for a ptuneograph as he walked to the players’ tunnel.
It was a disappointing night overall for Ronaldo and his Portugal team-mates.
Expected to beat Holland, they appeared lethargic and went behind when Memphis Depay scored after 11 minutes.
Former Liverpool player Ryan Babel doubled Holland’s lead not long before Virgil van Dijk applied a calm finish in first-half stoppage time.
