Former Portugal international, Fernando Meira, has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to walk off the field and throw his captain’s armband away, calling it “unacceptable” behaviour.

Ronaldo stormed off the pitch before the final whistle, after he was denied a clear winner in their 2-2 draw with Serbia in a UEFA World Cup Group A qualifier.

Stefan Mitrovic attempted to clear Ronaldo’s off the line, but despite his efforts, it crossed into the goal.

However, referee Danny Makkelie waved on play, and there was no VAR or goal-line technology to check the call.

“It’s a clear goal, but Ronaldo cannot throw Portugal’s captain’s armband on the floor.

“Cristiano’s reaction is natural but unacceptable for the captain of the national team. You cannot throw the captain’s armband on the floor and go towards the changing room while the game is still going on.

“It’s not acceptable for a player of his importance. I understand his frustration and I agree with him because the goal was valid, but the referees are the ones that have to make decisions, without VAR, and he has to set an example. And yesterday’s was not one to follow,” Meira, who has 54 caps for Portugal, said.
