Cristiano Ronaldo’s frustration with a referee during his match with Al-Nasr on Tuesday took over a soccer ball at the end of the first half against Abha.
Ronaldo, who was playing in the King’s Cup match for champions in the Saudi Professional League, came out of the Al-Nasr area and had his teammates head in the field with a good chance to pull away. Al-Nassr was already leading 2-0 in the match.
However, the referee whistled just over 47 minutes into it – two minutes of extra time were added to the end of the usual 45-minute first half.

Exceptionally, given the golden opportunity to score another goal on the board, Ronaldo promptly kicked the ball up the court.
Out of anger, the referee reached into his pocket to ask for his yellow card and issued it to Ronaldo. The 38-year-old soccer star scoffed at that, because he didn’t even look the way the referee was.

Al-Nassr did not need this scoring opportunity at the end of the match, as they progressed to the semi-finals with a 3-1 victory over Abha. Al-Nasr’s top scorer was Sami Al-Najel, Abdullah Al-Khibari and Muhammad Maran.
Ronaldo has been frustrated lately with not putting the ball in the net in his last two matches. That would have added to his decision to kick the ball on a great opportunity to change that.
