Cristiano Ronaldo Reacts Furiously To Al Nassr After Being Benched
Cristiano Ronaldo was left fuming at his team-mates as Al-Nassr were knocked out of the King Cup of Champions by Al-Wehda in a huge upset in Saudi Arabia.
Having beaten their opponents 4-0 just two months ago – a game which saw Ronaldo score all four goals – the hosts were expected to breeze into the final and set up a heavyweight clash against Al-Hilal.
But the newly-promoted side had other ideas, and one goal was enough for them to secure a route to the final and knock Nassr out of the competition at the semi-final stage.
They had lost Abdullah Al-Hafith to a red card in the second half, with the defender tripping Ronaldo on the edge of the box to pick up his second yellow.
onaldo, however, fired the free-kick over the bar, and that was the story of his night as he missed several key chances – including an effort from point-blank range – and was left fuming at his own team-mates and coaching staff on the substitutes’ bench.
