Only sixteen days before Juventus travel to Amsterdam to take on Galactico topplers Ajax in the Champions League Quarter-Final first-leg, the Old Lady will be sweating after Cristiano Ronaldo was withdrawn on the half-hour tonight whilst in action for Portugal. "It's odd", Ronaldo said. "I had the chance to talk to the referee and he admitted that it was a mistake". "We saw it and we had no doubts, neither he nor I, and then he apologised", Santos said.
The decision angered Ronaldo and head coach Fernando Santos, with the star Portugal skipper questioning the absence of the video assistant referee.
Serbia is a good young team that hasn't lost any of their last 7 games and showed us in their last game against Germany that they are capable of playing against best teams in the world.

Ronaldo limped toward the sideline and signalled to the bench to request a substitution.

Just like in the scoreless draw against Ukraine, Portugal created numerous scoring opportunities but failed to capitalize.
Having been held to a 0-0 home stalemate by Ukraine on Friday, Portugal were under pressure to deliver but fell behind after their goalkeeper Rui Patricio clattered into Mijat Gacinovic and Tadic converted the spot kick.
Portugal were also guilty of some poor finishing in the first half as William Carvalho fired wide from five metres in the fourth minute, with the visitors on the back foot throughout the opening 45 minutes.
Serbia visits Ukraine for its second qualifier on June 7, while Portugal returns to qualifying action on September 7 with a game at Serbia.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
