Watch as Cristiano Ronaldo gets only a yellow card for an off the ball kick against Hungary’s Attila Fiona!
Hungary and Portugal played out an entertaining match in a World Cup qualifier.
Portugal won 0-1 thanks to Andre Silva early second half goal.
There was one really controversial moment, when Tamas Priskin got a red card for an elbow on Pepe. It looked way to harsh for Priskin to get the red card, but he did.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now been directly involved in 18 goals in his last 12 games for Portugal.

Strangely, but referee made a similar mistake concerning Cristiano Ronaldo.
It was late into the game, close to the 90th minute. Ronaldo was trying to make a fancy back-pass, but Fiona was there to block it. They players hit each other, and Ronaldo didn’t like that.
He instinctively kicked out at the player. That should have been a straight red card for the Portuguese’s star. You just can’t kick other players, especially when there’s no ball around.
Well, referee decided to show yellow card to both players, which was very weird.
Two decisions that went Portugal’s way. One only wonders, what would happen in this match, if Priskin wouldn’t get a red card, but he did, and that is that.
