Cristiano Ronaldo's Reaction To Referee Blowing A Few Seconds Too Early For Half-Time Sums Him Up Perfectly

Cristiano Ronaldo's Reaction To Referee Blowing A Few Seconds Too Early For Half-Time Sums Him Up Perfectly

Cristiano Ronaldo showcased his elite mentality when referee Paolo Valeri blew up too early during Portugal's international friendly against Spain on Wednesday night.

It may have been a meaningless fixture to many but Ronaldo was keen to put on a show at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon, although he didn't manage to find a breakthrough in what turned out to be a far-from-eventful 0-0 draw.

Despite the result, this priceless moment after the half-time whistle was a perfect illustration of his infectious will-to-win mentality.

In footage that has since gone viral on social media, the 35-year-old can be seen gesturing his displeasure at the decision.

With the five-time Ballon d'Or winner clearly agitated when the official ended the first-half earlier than he anticipated, Ronaldo points at the clock behind him before raising his arms in the air.

Portugal's all-time top goalscorer walks away in a strop moments later, as his side went into the dressing room with the scoreline tied at 0-0.

In the friendly against Luis Enrique's side, Ronaldo was also denied a wonderful assist after spraying an inch-perfect ball with the outside of his right boot to teammate Renato Sanches.

Sanches, who now plays his club football with Ligue 1 side Lille after spells at Benfica, Swansea and Bayern Munich, smashed his effort against the crossbar in what would have been a cracking team goal.

Plenty of fans lauded Ronaldo's 'underrated' passing ability in the meantime.
