When Nani Ruined One Of Cristiano Ronaldo's Greatest Ever Goals

When Nani Ruined One Of Cristiano Ronaldo's Greatest Ever Goals

One of Cristiano Ronaldo's angriest moments came when Nani caused his stunning solo goal to be disallowed back in 2010.

Captaining the Portugal national team against Spain, Ronaldo sent Gerard Pique back to his loan spell with Real Zaragoza with the deftest of chops.

He then took another swift touch to keep the ball away from Xabi Alonso and beautifully scooped the ball over Iker Casillas.

Ronaldo had already started to wheel away in celebration but just as the ball was about to drop into the back of the net, Nani came from out of nowhere and headed it in on the line.

The problem was, Nani was deemed to be offside and so the goal was chalked off. CR7 was absolutely incensed, well and truly throwing his toys out of the pram and even hurling his captain's armband on the turf.

When Cristiano Ronaldo Was Denied A Goal By Nani

published at14 days ago

"I touched the ball because I thought I wasn't offside. Everything happened so quickly," Nani said, as per the Guardian.

"After having time to think about it I apologised to Ronaldo. It was a great piece of play and I shouldn't have ruined it."

Ronaldo, however, vented his fury at the officials instead of Nani as he felt the ball had already crossed the line.

Speaking to Marca, he said: "I don't understand, even a blind man could see it was a goal. The ball was half a metre into the net."

"I don't know if it's a coincidence or not but my best goals with the national team are being disallowed. I remember an overhead kick in the Bessa stadium which wasn't given."

The decision didn't prove costly in the end as Portugal thrashed world champions Spain 4-0 but we reckon Nani still feels guilty he denied Ronaldo one of his greatest ever goals.
