Cristiano Ronaldo Reacts After Iranian Fans Make Noise Outside Portugal's Hotel

Iran have a very difficult task at hand when they take on Portugal in their final Group B clash later on this evening - and the nation will take even the slightest advantage if it can in any way help them in pursuit of a place in the knockout stages.

And it appears as though a portion of their supporters have been trying to get one-up on their opponents by standing outside Portugal's hotel and making a whole lot of noise.

It's become quite a frequent tactic from football fans ahead of big games and of course Iran targeted Portugal's talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo.


The five-time Ballon d'Or winner is in red-hot form, scoring four in his first two games and coming off breaking the record for the most international goals scored by a European player.

CR7's early header against Morocco took him to an incredible 85 goals for Portugal and sees him overtake the legendary Ferenc Puskas.

Conversely, some Iranians with vuvuzelas (yes they are still a thing it seems) tried to ruin his night sleep and their ploy appeared to work to an extent.

Footage shows the Real Madrid star coming to the window and politely asking them to keep the noise down, like your pensioner next door neighbour, with Ronaldo even gesturing with a 'go to sleep' motion.

As pointed out above it's not fazed him before though, as when PSG fans tried to disturb he and his Real Madrid colleagues, Ronaldo scored a header in a 2-1 Champions League last 16 second leg win in the French capital.

With England's Harry Kane now top of the Golden Boot charts, Ronaldo will be desperate to add to his goal tally against Iran, managed by his former mentor Carlos Queiroz.
