Luis Nani denies Cristaino Ronaldo a wonder goal against Spain

It should have been a wonder goal. Instead it ended with daggers between teammates.

One of the highest profile international friendlies on Wednesday night saw the Battle of Iberia take place as Portugal hosted European and World champions Spain. Spicing up the contest further was the knowledge that Spain dumped Portugal out of the World Cup only a few months ago in South Africa in a match that C-Ron and co failed to turn up in.

With somewhat of a redemption on offer Cristiano Ronaldo turned on the afterburners during the first half. The world’s most expensive footballer collected possession in the inside left channel and immediately rocked Gerard Pique back on his heels as he darted down the line.

Nani wasn't dumb.
It wasn't offside, Pique was putting Nani on the game.
The ball was already in when Nani touched the ball.

Nani IS Dumb
He was why he headed when it clearly it will be in ? Answer : Glory hunter...And yes you're right about the part of the ball was in when he touched it

get over it... its a friendly, no reason to react the way he did, nani didnt look offside in the first place and the ball looks like it crossed the linebefore he even got a touch on it.

Nani is a great player. C Ronaldo had did the same thing.
