Cristiano Ronaldo has said he was more than happy at the boo’s he received from the French fans. In a bizarre show of some backbone, the French fans stuck up for their English counterparts, and for the beautiful game by making sure any player who was diving was given the correct treatment. Maybe they were trying to ignore Henry’s effort, so nicely highlighted on BBC last night.

‘I was pleased about being booed.

Maybe France fans were upset to see a dangerous player. I’m not worried’
said Ronaldo. Dangerous player? Why, go near him and he falls over?

I’m trying to stay neutral here as I’m really not sure what we do with Ron, however he also had an opinion on the referee:

‘Everyone who saw the match could see that the referee wasn’t fair.

He should have shown yellow cards but he did not because Portugal is a small country.’


Pot calling kettles considering his antics. I’m surprised he wasn’t booked for what was one of the worst dives I’ve seen since any of Drogba’s, or the Alpay effort in the last world cup.

It must be noted however that it wasn’t just Ronaldo that was struggling to cope with the sniper in the stands. Former Spurs striker Postiga looked like he’d been hit on the head with an ACNE anvil.

The one thing I can say to Cristiano is that he’s probably already done enough to get himself a move away from United. Does the man really need to keep shooting his mouth off to make sure?

(On a side note, can we maybe just tone the comments down slightly. I’ve never seen such a massive use of the F-word!)
