- Portugal destroyed Spain 4-0 in a friendly encounter in 2010.
- Ronaldo gave his country the lead with a superb effort in the first half.
- The goal, however, was disallowed as Nani headed the ball from the offside position when it was dropping into the net.
- The latter obviously apologised to Cristiano as he had no intention to take the goals from him.
Then-Real Madrid star Ronaldo gave his country the lead with a superb chip-effort in the first half but his opener was disallowed because of his teammate. Nani headed the ball from the offside position when it was dropping into the net sparking a furious reaction from Cristiano.
"No, I think he was angry with the referee! Everyone took it wrong, he was angry with the referee because the ball was already in and they made a bad decision," Nani told UTD Podcast.
"Imagine if the ball was not in and then I took it before. I was not offside if you see that video.
"But obviously I had no intention to take the goal from him. I told him 'Sorry' in that moment because it was a beautiful goal.
"And for me, that goal still exists, you just need to cut out the part where I touched the ball! But thank God he doesn't need that goal to be who he is and he has so many goals to choose and still enjoy his career, and the fans as well."
Thankfully, it was only a friendly encounter. Ronaldo has gone on to face Spain two times since that night in Portugal but failed to win on both occasions.
