People Think They Know What Cristiano Ronaldo Said To Ref To Get Yellow Card

Cristiano Ronaldo endured a frustrating evening as Portugal were knocked out of the World Cup in the round of 16 after a 2-1 defeat to Uruguay.

PSG striker Edinson Cavani was the matchwinner, scoring a brace either side of a Pepe equaliser to send Oscar Tabarez's side into the quarter finals against France - and ensure Ronaldo joined fellow five-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi in being dumped out of the competition on the same day.

CR7 had notched four in the group stages, including a phenomenal hat-trick against Spain, but he was well below par in Sochi, with his night's work summed up by his yellow card for dissent in the second half.

The Real Madrid superstar would have missed the quarter final had Portugal managed to beat their opponents, but of course it did not matter in the end.

Still, plenty of people were in agreement over the expletives Ronaldo appeared to have uttered when he got in the face and yelled at the man in the middle, Cesar Arturo Ramos.

After they both drew a blank today, Ronaldo and Messi are still waiting to score a goal in a World Cup knockout game.
