World Cup: What Ronaldo told Piers Morgan about Fernandes’ first goal for Portugal against Uruguay

Published

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, immediately texted broadcaster Piers Morgan from the locker room after his side’s World Cup 2-0 win over Uruguay to claim that he did, in fact, touch teammate Bruno Fernandes’ cross to open the scoring.

This claim was made by former USA international, Alexi Lalas.

“The breaking news is that Cristiano Ronaldo did not score despite his claims that it [the ball] did touch him,” Lalas said on Fox Soccer.

“I was just with Piers Morgan and he said that Cristiano texted him from the locker room saying that he believes that it touched his head. So, uhm, who knows.”

Recall that Fernandes scored a brace to help Portugal seal the victory against Uruguay in their second World Cup Group H tie on Monday night.

However, it seemed like Ronaldo had scored the first goal for Portugal against Uruguay.

The former Manchester United attacker claimed the first goal from Fernandes’ cross.

But replays showed that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner did not touch the ball, and Fernandes was awarded the goal.

Morgan, however, celebrated prematurely as he uploaded a photo of Ronaldo celebrating and tagged the forward.

EPL: Patrick Vieira names ‘different’ team that could win title, warns Arsenal, Man City

Crystal Palace boss, Patrick Vieira has warned Manchester City and Arsenal of a ‘different’ Manchester United that could snatch the Premier League title from their fingers.

The Arsenal legend believes that the Red Devils are a ‘different’ proposition under Erik ten Hag.

After a poor start to the season which saw them suffer a 4-0 defeat to Brentford and a home loss to Brighton, Manchester United have found their stride to climb into the Champions League places.

Manchester United could close the gap between them and league leaders to just three points if they could beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday and defeat Arsenal on Sunday.

And Vieira is insisting that the Red Devils must be taken seriously as they prepare to play Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

“When you look at their last couple of games, the number of wins and how close they are to the top, I think they can be [in a title race].

“It’s a different United [to the one we saw last season].”
