Nemanja Matic Trolls Manchester United Teammate Bruno Fernandes By Sticking Picture On His Locker

Did it cross the line or not? Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to score an injury time winner for Portugal after his shot appeared to cross the goalline in their World Cup qualifier against Serbia - but it wasn't given.

It was a pivotal moment in the game as Fernando Santos' side looked set to leave the Rajko Mitic stadium with all three points but it wasn't to be, despite the furious protests of Ronaldo and his teammates.

The dust has far from settled, either. The Juventus forward could be hit with a ban for storming off the pitch before the final whistle was blown on Saturday.

He wasn't happy, to say the least.

Goal-line technology wasn't at hand to save the day at the weekend and, with it fresh in the memory, Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic was keen to let teammate Bruno Fernandes know about the unfortunate decision.

On Tuesday morning, the Serbian - who retired from international football last year - went out of his way to print a picture of the ball not crossing the line before sticking it on Bruno's locker at Carrington.

He took a snap of his masterpiece on social media with the caption: "Just on the line. Is it all clear now?"

Oh, and he tagged Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernandes in the story. Brutal.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos later revealed the referee apologised for the costly error, meanwhile a furious Ronaldo was cautioned for his protests by the referee but walked off the pitch before the game was finished, throwing his captains' armband to the turf.

Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport claim the 36-year-old could be banned for at least one game for his conduct.

Article 11 in the Disciplinary Code states: "Associations and clubs, as well as their players, officials or any other member or person performing a function on their behalf, must comply with the Laws of the Game, the FIFA Statutes and the regulations, directives, guidelines, circulars and the decisions of FIFA; likewise, they must comply with the principles of fair play, loyalty and integrity."

Ronaldo has not been found guilty of a charge yet but Portugal will be hoping he is not suspended for upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
