The Incredible Moment Cristiano Ronaldo And Karim Benzema Recreate Reus And Lewandowski's Iconic Meme

Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema's reunion on the pitch left both players sharing a heart-warming exchange similar to Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski's bromance.

Portugal clashed with 2018 World Cup champions France on Wednesday in their final Group F match at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary.


Ahead of kick-off, eagle-eyed fans spotted the excitement between Benzema and Ronaldo on the pitch.

A smirking Benzema appeared thrilled to see the Juventus superstar, while Ronaldo returned the bromance with a cheeky smile at the Real Madrid striker.

Ronaldo, 36, forged a superb partnership with Benzema during his remarkable playing career at Los Blancos.

The pre-match bromance between Benzema and Ronaldo prompted fans to compare it with Reus and Lewandowski's memorable on-pitch exchange in 2015.

Reus managed to catch Lewandowski's eye during Borussia Dortmund's German Cup clash with Bayern Munich.

The 32-year-old Dortmund captain then started to smile, which prompted former teammate Lewandowski to break out into laughter.

"Find someone that looks at you the way Ronaldo and Benzema look at each other," one fan said.

Someone else posted: "Streets say Ronaldo and Benzema are remaking the Reus-Lewandowski video."

A third Twitter user wrote: "Benzema and Ronaldo both smiling at each other before kick-off. What a moment."

While a fourth tweeted: "They did the Lewandowski/Reus camera thing with Ronaldo and Benzema."
