It is apparently very easy to get a rise out of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was left fuming with the crowd in the UAE after they chanted for Lionel Messi while watching him play in the Club World Cup semi-final.
Ronaldo was visibly irked by the taunts from the Al Jazira fans.
Check out his reaction here…
As is generally the case, the Portuguese superstar had the last laugh in the end as he equalised to end Al Jazira’s hopes of a famous victory.
Gareth Bale scored a late winner to ensure Los Blancos progressed to the final.
Zinedine Zidane’s men were truly up against it until Ronaldo’s goal in 53rd minute.
Romarinho put the minnows ahead in the 41st minute and the hosts had a second ruled out by VAR soon after.
Karim Benzema missed an abundance of chances to put the visitors ahead, hitting the woodwork twice, before Ronaldo settled the nerves with a typically accomplished finish.
However, given his reaction and the viral nature of the tweet exhibiting it, the legendary goalscorer should prepare for more chants of ‘Messi, Messi’ in the final.
