Cristiano Ronaldo made a strong attack on Ireland’s Dara O’Shea before missing a penalty for Portugal.
And the Manchester United superstar’s actions have prompted Irish fans to question whether he deserves to be on the pitch.
An error by Jeff Hendrick gave Bruno Fernandez a spot kick in the ninth minute of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier.
And Ronaldo caught the ball just before VAR’s provocative wait to confirm the mistake at Estadio Algarve.
However, Republic of Ireland defender O Shi decided to play some mental games because Ronnie was waiting.
He kicked the ball from the penalty spot with his cheek but Ronaldo was not impressed.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus man angrily batted O’Shea with one arm.
But then Ronaldo saved his penalty in his fifth cap for Ireland through Manchester City goalkeeper Gavin Bazono.
However, some Irish fans questioned whether Ronaldo should have come on the field after his actions against Osha.
