FIFA World Cup 2022: Bruno Fernandes makes Cristiano Ronaldo’s admission about his goal
Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes said that Cristiano Ronaldo could have scored his first goal of the game.
During the 54th minute of the Portugal vs Uruguay game, Bruno Fernandes put an inviting cross into the box, which just sailed past Cristiano Ronaldo’s head into the back of the net. Cristiano Ronaldo burst into celebration claiming the goal, but Burno Fernandes’ name was later announced on the loudspeaker.
Speaking to the media, Bruno Fernandes said: “The feeling I had was that Cristiano touched the ball. I was passing the ball to him. But what matters is that we are going through to the next round after playing a very tough opponent.”
Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo were teammates at Manchester United. However, the Red Devils terminated his contract following his controversial interview earlier this month.
The 37-year-old attacker is currently a free agent and will make a decision about his career after the FIFA World Cup. Newcastle United, Chelsea, and several Saudi League clubs have shown interest in signing him in recent weeks.
Portugal will next lock horns against South Korea at the Education City Stadium for their final group-stage game of the FIFA World Cup. They will look to register a win in the game to secure a top place in Group H.
