Anger, confusion and defeat… Cristiano Ronaldo's dirty evening

Like his team, Cristiano Ronaldo had a complicated match against a cheerful Georgia (2-0) on Wednesday night. Well, in his mind since the start of the Euros, CR7 has shown a more angry face towards Willy Sagnol's players.

Perfect so far, Portugal's journey to the Euros took a sharp turn on Wednesday after a shock defeat to Georgia (2-0). One man symbolized a frustrating evening for the Lusitanians: Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Ballon d'Or holder and captain of the team for the third time in three matches played a complex game in the middle of the Georgian defence. This is in contrast to the first two games where we saw him smiling, breaking records, selfless (assisting a goal against Turkey) and even warm with his teammates.

But at Schalke, CR7 was rarely found in a good position. He could have (should?) been awarded a penalty for a rough shirt clash in the first half. Cristiano Ronaldo was particularly frustrated as he was substituted in the second half, being replaced by Gonzalo Ramos before angrily shooting a water bottle, a controversial moment keenly remembered, after the final whistle. A sequence captured on social networks.

He could be celebrating this evening's sale by claiming that he has scored 50 goals (22 in the World Cup, 28 in the Euros), the player having claimed the most major tournament encounters in history.
