World Cup 2022: Ronaldo’s Reaction To Ramos Stunning Goal Against Switzerland
Portugal’s coach, Fernando Santos’ decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo against Switzerland was rewarded within 20 minutes as replacement striker Goncalo Ramos produced a stunning strike to score just his second international goal.
The Euro 2016 winners didn’t need Ronaldo though, as Ramos thundered in a near post shot to give his side the lead. The 21-year-old was playing just his fourth international match, and his first at a World Cup, and was overjoyed with the finish.
His teammates flocked to join him in amazement for the celebration too, but as the cameras panned to Ronaldo on the bench, it wasn’t clear his side had just taken the lead. He did join those running to celebrate with Ramos, but quickly put back on a serious face.
Despite leading in a World Cup knockout game, Ronaldo appeared to remain sturn faced in his warm-up top, and wasn’t seen with as much as a smile from the sideline, but Gary Neville addressed that, saying after the game: “It’s worth noting that in the first half there was a picture doing the rounds on social media looking like he was miserable on the bench after the first two goals.
