Football news – Cristiano Ronaldo: I will ‘never change’ after storming off pitch in Portugal draw


Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted to storming off the pitch before full-time during Portugal’s 2-2 draw with Serbia on Saturday night.

The striker said he would ‘never change’ after also removing his captain’s armband having seeing what looked to be a winner cleared from behind the line and the goal not being awarded.

Stefan Mitrovic’s intervention was ruled to have kept the ball out of the goal and there was no goal line technology or video assistant referee to provide a review.
