A Short Commentary on Ronaldo’s Field of Passion
Cristiano Ronaldo was mobbed by pitch invaders during Portugal's 3-0 loss to the Netherlands.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s efforts to win a penalty were denied during a friendly against the Netherlands, some fans took the opportunity to meet their hero by making a beeline for the Portuguese star for an impromptu meet and greet.
Throughout the night, up until Ronaldo got replaced by a teammate, he was swarmed by enthusiastic fans.
First there was Parka Guy. He bolted onto the field heroically dodging the security enforcers who were on his tail and went straight for a pash on the lips... that Ronaldo dodged ever so slightly. Parka Guy had a phone in one hand while the other tenderly held Ronaldo’s neck.
Next came Stumpy Fanboy. Unlike Parka Guy, Stumpy Fanboy took to following his comrade by running after him and sneaking a little cuddle with Ronaldo. He had his hands pressed together while he was running toward Ronaldo, and it was as if he was begging for some handsy action. After getting his hug, both him and Parka Guy were escorted away from the pitch.
Last but not least, came Scarf Lady. Adrenaline must have coursed through her veins as she pushed harder and went faster (than security) to finally be in the arms of her favorite soccer star. Although a little underwhelming, we were glad that she got to at least touch Ronnie’s arms.
Ronaldo looked royally pissed after these encounters but we’re sure it was mainly because he couldn’t the back of the net in Portugal’s 3-0 loss to the Netherlands.
