Recent happenings and FIFA rules see Cristiano Ronaldo at risk of a FIFA sanction for his furious reaction to the denial of Portugal’s winning goal against Serbia on Saturday night.
Ronaldo poked the ball over the line in added time, wheeling away in celebration, thinking he had given his side a 3-2 victory, only for the officials and the absence of goalline technology to deny the Juventus star and the Portugal team the goal.
Ronaldo at risk of ban from FIFA
It has not yet been confirmed whether or not he has breached the rules of Article 11 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, which details “Offensive conduct or violation of the principles of fair play.”
If he is found guilty, the ban could be at least one match or an appropriate period of time for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Former Portugal international Fernando Meira blasted the country’s top scorer, saying that his attitude was unacceptable and set a bad example for others.
