Bad night for Ronaldo: slap to O’Shea and missed penalty against Ireland

CR7’s first outing on the pitch after passing from Juve to United at the moment a negative protagonist with his national team in the match for the World Cup qualifiers

It is a very nervous Ronaldo who took the field with the Portugal shirt against Ireland. In the first half of the match, valid for qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar 2022, the former Juventus player slapped an opponent, defender Dara O’Shea, before missing a penalty kick.

The fact

Around the quarter of an hour of play, after a visit to the var, referee Matej Jug awards Portugal a penalty for a rather clumsy foul by Jeff Hendrick. Ronaldo shows up at the shot but just as he is arranging the ball on the spot, O’Shea pushes it away with his foot. A wrong gesture, of course, to which CR7 reacts with a slap in the face of the Irish player. Without the referee taking out any cards.
