Watch Cristiano Ronaldo throw away Portugal armband in disgust as late winner is incredibly not given against Serbia


CRISTIANO RONALDO launched his captain’s armband in disgust after his late winner was sensationally ruled out.

The Portugal ace thought he had settled a brilliant World Cup Qualifier with Serbia in the final seconds of the contest.

With the scores tied at 2-2, Ronaldo’s volley was about to hit the back of the net when the Serb defender pulled off a desperate clearance.

Ronaldo was adamant the ball had crossed the line but the linesman opted not to flag.

Portugal’s record scorer was furious and marched over to the linesman to argue his case but his protests fell on deaf ears.

Replays showed Ronaldo had every reason to be dismayed with the decision with the ball clearly crossing the line.

No goal-line technology was being used in the contest.

Ronaldo was then booked for his protests to further rub salt in the wound.

He was left raging, waving his arms in disbelief before ripping off his armband and launching it to the floor.

Liverpool’s Diogo Jota put Portugal in a commanding position in the first half by scoring twice after 36 minutes.

Fulham’s Aleksander Mitrovic fired Serbia back into the contest seconds into the second half with a close-range header.

Filip Kostic then equalised on the hour mark as both teams looked for a winner in the final 30 minutes.

Serbia were forced to play the last two minutes with ten men when Nikola Milenkovic was shown a straight red card moments before the huge controversy.
