Ibrahimovic: I did not applaud Ronaldo


The Paris Saint-Germain attacker insists he was trying to encourage his Sweden team-mates after he was pictured clapping following the Portugal star's third goal.

The story is too old to be commented.

lol what timing to applaud though.
Ronaldo scores a goal, the fans cheer, cut to a shot of ibra and he is looking in CR7 direction and applauding as well lol what were people going to think.

at least that got straightened out. here i thought he was being a good sportsman. lol

Why are people giving this performance from Ronaldo so much praise? He was clean through on goal from good passes and scored all three, that is what I expect from a player of his quality. He bangs in goals all the time and scores hat tricks every other few weeks so I don't know what the big deal is really.

You pretty much just answered your own question there. Like most other games he was outstanding and got another hat-trick. He got 3 chances and scored them all and they weren't exactly the easiest chances.

This is Ronaldo we are talking about... against Sweden. He scores goals like this all the time. If he had of scored a hat trick in La Liga instead of a WCQ there would barely be mention of it.

People talk about it because he single handedly took Portugal to the World Cup!

lol! Now I have heard it all. I guess those through balls that were played to send him clear on goal had nothing to do with it.

Ibrahimovic shows no respect to anyone but himself...
