Cristiano Ronaldo 'Disappoints' Iceland Player Who Wanted His Shirt as Portugal Ace Euro Qualifiers
- An Iceland player was left disappointed after missing out on Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt
- The veteran played what was possibly his last Euro qualifier match on November 19
- Portugal ended their flawless qualifier campaign on a high with a victory over Iceland
Cristiano Ronaldo left an Iceland player disappointed on November 19, after the player failed to secure the veteran's matchday shirt.
For a player of his calibre, it is almost impossible for Ronaldo to go a game without opponents asking for his shirt after a match.
This was the case on Sunday after Portugal ended their Euro 2024 qualifier campaign on a high with a 2-0 victory over Iceland.
It was a relatively quiet game for Ronaldo, who headed a brilliant chance over the bar at the half-hour mark.
He also had the opportunity to score Portugal’s second goal when the ball fell kindly to him from a Joao Felix shot, but his rebound was saved and Horta finished off instead.
Ronaldo 'disappoints' Iceland player
Despite not finding the net, Ronaldo was still a popular figure at the full-time whistle, for obvious reasons.
A video has emerged online showing an Iceland player appearing to ask the five-time Ballon d’Or winner for his shirt, but he is politely turned down.
Ronaldo then unzips his jacket to show the player he had already given his shirt away - presumably to a different opponent from the game.
It was tough luck for the player, who returned to the bench after missing out on what is likely Ronaldo’s last shirt ever worn in a Euro qualifier game.

Portugal’s stellar form in Euro qualifiers
Aside from off-pitch incidents, Portugal has been the team to beat since they appointed Martinez as manager in January.
According to the BBC, the Selecao have won 10 games in their campaign this year, scoring 36 times and conceding just twice.
The only other nation with similar form is France, who missed out on a perfect record with their draw against Greece on Tuesday.
