Pitch invader hurts Ronaldo | Pitch invader Euro 2024 qualifier | Pitch invader Portugal vs Bosnia

A pitch invader accidentally hurt Cristiano Ronaldo’s ankle while trying to take a selfie with him. Ronaldo, who leads Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr, was back on national duty as his side, Portugal locked horns with Bosnia and Herzegovina in their Euro 2024 qualifier on October 17, Tuesday (IST). Ronaldo scored two goals for his side in the first half as Portugal secured a 5-0 victory over their counterparts.

With his two goals on Monday night, Ronaldo became the top scorer in the world in 2023, scoring 40 goals so far across all competitions. The 38-year-old is followed by Manchester City and Norway striker Erling Haaland (39), and PSG and France forward Kylian Mbappe (35). Ronaldo has also achieved another milestone by scoring at least 100 goals in three different decades.

During the 39th minute of the match, a Ronaldo fan invaded the pitch by breaching the security and rushed to the football great. The invader was wearing an Al-Nassr jersey and tried to get a selfie with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. However, the invader couldn’t succeed in doing so as the security intervened just in time, and in all of this, the Ronaldo fan accidentally hurt the footballer.

The 38-year-old was seen in some discomfort initially as he limped for a few minutes; however, the Al-Nassr skipper continued playing for a few minutes before he was eventually substituted. The incident took place three days after Portugal’s win over Slovakia when a young fan ran onto the pitch to get a selfie with him. 

With his two first-half goals during the match, Ronaldo has now taken his Portugal goal tally to 127 in 203 appearances that he has made in his national colours. Apart from Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix also made it to the scoresheet to contribute to Portugal’s win on Tuesday.
