The match took place on December 2 and ended in a 1-2 defeat for the Portuguese. Ronaldo was in the starting lineup and was substituted in the 65th minute.
Did I see the footage of his reaction? Yes. I really didn't like it. However, those moments were resolved privately. Now is the time to think about our game against Switzerland.
