Cristiano Ronaldo became upset after he saw Ghanaian Osman Bukari imitate his ‘SIUU’ celebration after scoring.
In the 65th minute of Portugal’s World Cup opening, Ronaldo became the first player in World Cup history to score a penalty.
When he was brought down by a defender, he took an emphatic penalty kick before resorting to his well-known celebration, which drew applause from the crowd.
When Ronaldo was replaced late in the game, he noticed Bukari of Red Star Belgrade closing the gap.
Rather than snatching the ball and sprinting back to the midway line, he decided to do his own ‘SIUU.’
Despite Portugal’s 3-2 lead, all eyes were on Ronaldo, who appeared enraged.
Ghana caused problems for Portugal and equalized in the 73rd minute through former Swansea and West Ham striker Andre Ayew.
The team of Fernando Santos, on the other hand, responded quickly with goals from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao. Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, who was on fire at Stadium 974, assisted both goals.
Ronaldo made his first appearance for Manchester United since his contract was terminated as a result of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, which landed him in hot water with his bosses.
The 37-year-old was overcome with emotion after leading his squad into the field and screamed out the national anthem.
Ronaldo has now scored eight World Cup goals in five tournaments, with his first coming from the penalty spot against Iran in the 2006 final in Germany.
He hasn’t scored in a knockout round game yet, with all of his goals coming in group stage games.
At the aftermath of Portugal’s loss in the World Cup, Ghana coach Otto Addo voiced his disapproval of Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty decision.

After his team’s 3-2 loss to Portugal in their World Cup opening on Thursday, Ghana head coach Otto Addo criticized Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to take the penalty kick. Portugal defeated Ghana.
In the second half, Ronaldo was brought to the ground by Mohammed Salisu, and he scored the penalty that cemented his place in World Cup history by making him the first male player to score in five different tournaments. Mohammed Salisu was the one who brought Ronaldo to the ground.
The goal scored by Osman Bukari in the 89th minute gave Ghana a late scare, but they were unable to get an equalizer in the extra time that was played.
After the game, Addo voiced his frustration with the American referee, Ismail Elfath, for giving Portugal the penalty.
Everyone could clearly see that the referee had given a penalty that did not belong to him. Why? ‘ Is it only because he is Ronaldo, or is there some other explanation? Addo claims that BeIN Sport is the best.
When asked if he believes the foul was given because it was Ronaldo, Addo responded in his post-match press conference by saying, “I think you have to ask the referee.” That assertion is not supported by any evidence that I possess. When we made contact, we were engaged in normal play of the ball.
“I do not know whether they were not paying attention or whether the VAR was not paying attention. I have no idea.”
“If you watch the footage, you’ll see that we played the ball, but it ended up being a foul against us,” the commentator said. “If you watch the tape.”
