World Cup 2018: Referee Accused Of Asking Cristiano Ronaldo For Shirt

Referee Accused Of Asking Cristiano Ronaldo For Shirt

THE referee in the Portugal vs Morocco match has been allegedly accused of asking for Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt at half-time.

Watford ace Nordin Amrabat supposedly made the startling claim about American ref Mark Geiger, having spoken to Portuguese star Pepe.
Speaking to Dutch TV, Amrabat was quoted as saying: “I do not know what he [the referee] is used to, but he was very impressed by Cristiano Ronaldo.

“And I hear from Pepe that he asked in the first half if he should have his shirt.

“What are we talking about? At the World Cup, it’s not a circus here.”

Meanwhile, Ronaldo became Europe’s all-time leading international goalscorer with his fourth-minute strike in the game.
The Real Madrid star, 33, nodded home early in the clash as his side hung on to a 1-0 victory.

It was Ronaldo’s fourth goal of the tournament and 85th for Portugal… breaking Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas’ 62-year record.

It’s taken Ronaldo 151 caps to surpass that long-time tally… and he’ll now have his eye on the world record, rather than just European.

Ronaldo is already No2 on the global list – trailing Iran’s Ali Daei, who scored a mind-boggling 109 goals in just 149 games between 1993 and 2006.
