Cristiano Ronaldo, captain of Portugal, was reprimanded for not wearing a face mask during Saturday night’s UEFA Nations League 4-1 win over Croatia at his side.
Ronaldo was ruled out of the game against Croatia because of an infection on the toe that was similar to a bee sting.
The Juventus forward had to be reminded to put a mask on as he was forced to watch his country defeat Croatia from the stands, thanks to four goals from Joao Cancelo, Diogo Jota, Joao Felix and Andre Silva.
During the match, Ronaldo unavoidably drew plenty of attention after a stadium official was filmed approaching the Juve No. 7 to remind him to put on a face mask as part of COVID-19 protocol.
While obviously not too happy about the distraction, the 35-year-old Juventus quickly agreed and put on a face mask as he watched the rest of the game.
Ronaldo will now hope to recover fully before Portugal’s next fixture against Sweden on Tuesday.
