The Armband Cristiano Threw To The Ground Raises Money For Serbian Child

Cristiano Ronaldo threw his captain's armband to the ground in disgust at the failure to award a goal for his shot that had clearly crossed the line against Serbia, leaving Portugal with a point instead of all three. However, the Portuguese superstar's moment of outrage could end up being a life saver, given that the armband was recollected and is now being used to raise money for a sick child in Serbia. A stadium worker picked up the armband from the ground and donated it to a children's organisation, which was seeking funds for a six-month-old Serbian child with spinal muscular atrophy. The child needs 2.5 million euros for his treatment and operation, and the children's charity has put the bracelet up for auction. Serbian newspaper Telegraf has reported that, in the firs...

Cristiano Ronaldo Reportedly Risks Sanction After His Nerves With Portugal

referee SO I'll sum it up! Portugal hangs 2-2, Ronaldo scores to give victory to his country, referee unfairly refuses his goal, Ronaldo gets mad and takes 1 yellow card + he risks a penalty. We're here, it's been hard for years, the guy we deny him the goal of victory unfairly, and he has to applaud that's it? What a scandal, it's been years since we can sanction Cristiano Ronaldo ... It's done, even if we're ridiculous. Sanctioned 1 player because he is pissed that he is denied 1 goal that should have been justified. When I think about Messi for example, who insulted Copa referees, accused of corruption FIFA and getting away with absolutely NO sanction, and we want to sanction 1 player who has a reaction than any other being human would have had. In short, this is routine!...
