Cristiano Ronaldo left in pain after pitch invader tries to take selfie with Portugal & Al-Nassr superstar during Euro 2024 qualifier



Cristiano Ronaldo almost suffered an unfortunate injury during his latest outing for Portugal as a selfie-hunting pitch invader stood on his foot.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was in Euro 2024 qualification action against Bosnia & Herzegovina on Monday. He scored another two goals in that contest, taking his record-breaking tally of efforts in men’s international football to 127.

Both of Ronaldo’s strikes came before half-time, but he was also confronted by a desperate fan before the interval was reached. That encounter could have turned out much worse for the all-time great, as he was clearly left in some pain before shaking off a blow to his foot.


The incident in question occurred in the 38th minute, with a fan creeping up alongside Ronaldo as he prepared to take a throw in. Said supporter then jumped over the advertising hoardings and onto the field, with his intention being to get a photo with Ronaldo. As security staff stepped in, CR7 saw his right boot trodden on.

Ronaldo also had to deal with a pitch invader during Portugal’s clash with Slovakia that saw them book their place at next summer’s European Championship in Germany. On that occasion, he was happy to pose for a picture with a young supporter.
