Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo texts Piers Morgan to tell him that he did score the goal accredited to Bruno Fernandes in the Portugal clash against Uruguay.
Through a tweet, Piers Morgan who shares close relationship with the four times Ballon dOr winner, confirm that Ronaldo texted him confirming that he made a contact with the ball. Morgan tweeted: "Ronaldo confirmed to me that his head touched the ball. Even Bruno agrees."
Ronaldo wheeled into celebration after ball crossed by Bruno passed over him into Uruguay's net before replay from fifa confirmed that he made no contact with the ball therefore awarding the goal to Bruno.
Debate has now raisen with some funs still convinced that it was Ronaldo's goal. Bruno who later scored another goal from the spot clenching the win for Portugal said that the goal should have been credited to Ronaldo because he was passing to him.
Fernandes said: "I don't really think it matters who scored. The feeling at the time was that he (Ronaldo) touched the ball — I was crossing it to him — but what's important was we moved into the next round and beat a very big opponent."
