Hungary Manager Takes Aim At 'Annoying' Cristiano Ronaldo For Over-The-Top Penalty Celebration

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has been accused of celebrating like he was "in the final" after his penalty against Hungary, according to Marco Rossi.

Hungary caused problems for Portugal in their opening Euro 2020 clash before Raphael Guerreiro broke the deadlock in the 84th minute.


Ronaldo opened his account at the Euros in the 87th minute before scoring an injury-time penalty to seal a 3-0 win for Portugal against Hungary.

The 36-year-old Portuguese superstar is currently the top scorer (five) at this summer's Euros and is tied with former Iran striker Ali Daei's all-time international goalscoring record (109).

However, Ronaldo's celebration after his penalty didn't sit well with Hungary manager Rossi, who insisted that people "notice these things."

Rossi praised the Juventus forward as a "great champion," but he admitted that Ronaldo can be "annoying" at times.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the 56-year-old Italian said: "Ronaldo is a great champion but at times he can be annoying.

"After the penalty with us, he celebrated as if he had scored in the final. People notice these things."
