Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo looked frustrated when his country conceded against Morocco after an awful piece of goalkeeping from Diogo Costa in the 42nd minute of their FIFA World Cup quarter-final clash on Saturday, 10 December.
Yahia Attiyat Allah's cross was turned in by Youssef En-Nesyri as the striker took a magnificent leap. However, it was a moment to forget for Costa. The FC Porto shot-stopper was left on no-mans-land as he jumped to collect the ball.
Ronaldo, sitting on the bench beside Joao Mario, was pictured giving a frustrated look.
ITV commentator Ally McCoist said (via Mirror):
"He's up, what a leap it is, excellent, it really is. Almost, dare I say it, Ronaldo-esque how high he gets up. Diogo Costa will not want to see that again but credit where it's due."
Fernando Santos decided to leave Cristiano Ronaldo out of the starting XI and decided to rely on hat-trick hero against Switzerland, Goncalo Ramos. Ronaldo, however, was introduced in the 51st minute along with Joao Cancelo as his country were in desperate need of a goal.
