World Cup 2018: Referee Accused Of Asking Cristiano Ronaldo For Shirt

THE referee in the Portugal vs Morocco match has been allegedly accused of asking for Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt at half-time.


Watford ace Nordin Amrabat supposedly made the startling claim about American ref Mark Geiger, having spoken to Portuguese star Pepe.
Speaking to Dutch TV, Amrabat was quoted as saying: “I do not know what he [the referee] is used to, but he was very impressed by Cristiano Ronaldo.


“And I hear from Pepe that he asked in the first half if he should have his shirt.


“What are we talking about? At the World Cup, it’s not a circus here.”


Meanwhile, Ronaldo became Europe’s all-time leading international goalscorer with his fourth-minute strike in the game.
The Real Madrid star, 33, nodded home early in the clash as his side hung on to a 1-0 victory.


It was Ronaldo’s fourth goal of the tournament and 85th for Portugal… breaking Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas’ 62-year record.


It’s taken Ronaldo 151 caps to surpass that long-time tally… and he’ll now have his eye on the world record, rather than just European.


Ronaldo is already No2 on the global list – trailing Iran’s Ali Daei, who scored a mind-boggling 109 goals in just 149 games between 1993 and 2006.
