Portugal's bench had a priceless reaction to the Diogo Costa incident as Cristiano Ronaldo couldn't believe his eyes in a hilarious sequence.
Portugal opened their World Cup campaign with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Ghana on Thursday, with Ronaldo, Joao Felix and Rafael Leao getting on the score-sheet.
Andre Ayew and Osman Bukari scored for Ghana, who almost levelled deep, deep into stoppage time when the Portugal keeper made a big blunder.
He rolled out the ball not knowing Inaki Williams was behind him. The Ghana striker pounced on the loose ball, but was unable to fashion a chance at goal.
However, Costa gave his team an almighty scare - evident from the incredible reaction of the team's bench.
Ronaldo cut a stunned figure as he saw Carlos roll out the ball, with his hand on his head and mouth wide open in utter shock.

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva looked on in horror while Diogo Dalot jumped into the frame, pulling up his shorts.
Felix and Ruben Neves gazed in amazement while Pepe and Fernando Santos were also taken aback by Carlos' blunder.
Despite the error not leading to a Ghana goal, Ronaldo comforted Carlos after the final whistle.
He was captured having words with the 23-year-old Porto stopper and was heard saying: "We won, you have to laugh, we won! Another victory and we go through, you can laugh, let's go! We won."
The 37-year-old showed his leadership traits after the game, with Santos praising his star man.
He called him 'one of the best players ever' in glowing praise: "One of the best players in the world, one of the best players ever.
"Cristiano Ronaldo is a phenomenon, a legend like many who have comes and gone before. In 50 years' time, we will continue to speak about him."
Portugal resume their Qatar venture against Uruguay next Monday before taking on South Korea next Friday.
