Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t hold back any emotions after Albania fans chanted Messi’s name in a deliberate attempt to annoy the Real Madrid star.
The Portuguese captain was participating in his sides pre-match warm up against Albania before the all important Euro 2016 Qualifier at the Elbasan Arena on Monday night.
It wasn’t too long before the boo’s and jeers aimed at the forward turned into chants of his feirce Balon D’or and World Player of The Year rival, Lionel Messi. Ronaldo, all in good manner gestured that he couldn’t hear the home fans, before laughing off the chants.
Portugal had the last laugh as a late Miguel Veloso header in the 92nd sealed a scrappy 1-0 victory for the visitors.
Portugal remain top of Group I on 15 points, while Albania are still third on 11.
