A few seconds into the AFC Champions League match between Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nasr and Iran’s Persepolis, something rare in football happened.
During an attack by the yellow team, Cristiano Ronaldo was fighting for the ball away from home and fell while trying to shoot, and the referee received the highest penalty.
However, the most eye-catching thing was “CR7’s” first reaction. Faced with the referee’s penalty, he asked him not to take the penalty.
Cristiano gestured to the referee, admitted that he had faked a foul in the penalty area, and requested that the penalty be cancelled. You can see in the replay that the Portuguese star’s legs did not make contact.
After chaos broke out in the stadium, the referee canceled the penalty based on VAR’s request and the game could proceed normally.
