Cristiano Ronaldo was not impressed as Ghana’s Osman Bukari performed his signature ‘SUIII’ celebration after scoring against Portugal.
The Portuguese legend had already used his signature move to score a penalty barely over an hour into the countries’ first World Cup match.
Andre Ayew then equalised for Ghana, only for Fernandos Santos’ team to score two more goals.
But, as the clock approached full-time, Ghana’s Bukari got one back for his team after Ronaldo left with his team firmly ahead.
The Ghana star’s effort to put the ball in the goal was clearly driven by a single thought.
As he ran towards the corner flag, he let out Ronaldo’s famous ‘SIUUU’.

Cameras then switched to CR7 on the Portugal bench, and it’s safe to say the now-ex-Manchester United player was not happy, throwing his fists in the air in frustration.
Despite a late gaffe by goalkeeper Diogo Costa, the Portuguese were able to hang on to the victory, and Ronaldo returned to the field to celebrate with his teammates at the finish of the game.
Portugal’s match against Ghana was Ronaldo’s first since leaving Manchester United on Tuesday.
United said in a statement: “Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
“The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future.
“Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”
