Watch as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bernardo Silva are left in disbelief at referee’s antics during Portugal vs Slovenia

CRISTIANO RONALDO was left in disbelief by the referee’s antics during Portugal’s clash with Slovenia.

The veteran forward and Bernardo Silva were both left puzzled by Daniele Orsato in Frankfurt on Monday night.

Portugal had been awarded a free-kick near the corner of the opposition penalty area during the first half.

With the ball placed down, Ronaldo had stepped back as he lined up an optimistic effort on goal.

However, Orsato was left unhappy with the position of the ball and sprinted over to move it to the correct position.

He shouted to Ronaldo as he protested the decision, with Silva seen putting his hands on his head.

The pair were able to see the funny side, though, as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner turned and pointed to a pitch-side camera.

Once the ball was positioned to the referee’s liking, Ronaldo lined up to shoot again, only for his effort to whistle comfortably wide.

The 39-year-old endured a frustrating afternoon in front of goal as he chased his first strike of the tournament.

He had earlier gone narrowly close with another free-kick, which sailed agonisingly over the crossbar.

Despite his best efforts, though, Slovenia’s defence stood strong as they withheld the Portuguese pressure.

Ronaldo has yet to open his account at Euro 2024, despite starting each of his side’s matches so far.

He does have an assist to his name, however, after unselfishly teeing up Bruno Fernandes to score in the 3-0 win over Turkey.

The Al-Nassr forward is playing at a record sixth Euros this summer, having first appeared at Euro 2004 on home soil.

As well as holding the record for most tournaments, Ronaldo has also played the most matches and scored the most goals in Euros history.
