After toiling for the first half-an-hour or so of the game, Portugal’s prize pony Cristiano Ronaldo was robbed of a brilliant solo opener against Iberian rivals Spain last night, when some thoughtful last-gasp ‘defending’ from Nani saw the Real Madrid forward’s effort rendered null and void…
…Fortunately, Portugal latterly when on to rout La Roja 4-0 thanks to goals from Carlos Martins, Hugo Almeida and a brace from Helder Postiga so, given Ronaldo’s famously placid ego, presumably all was forgiven.
UPDATE: Nani has now publicly apologised to Ronaldo for shafting him like a right royal twonk:
“After having time to think about it I said sorry to Ronaldo. It was a great piece of play and I shouldn’t have ruined it.”
