Angry Ronaldo appears to kick bottle after he was substituted off in Portugal’s surprising 2-0 defeat to Georgia (Video)

Cristiano Ronaldo faced a difficult match as Portugal unexpectedly lost to Georgia in their final group game on Wednesday night.

The 39-year-old made history by becoming the first player to reach 50 appearances in major international tournaments but failed to score for the third consecutive game at the Euros.

Although Ronaldo did not score in Portugal’s previous victories over the Czech Republic and Turkey, there were high hopes he would end his goal drought against Georgia.

However, the 2016 champions were stunned early when Khvicha Kvaratskhelia scored just two minutes in, capitalizing on a misplaced pass from Antonio Silva and a precise through ball from Georges Mikautadze.

Ronaldo’s efforts to equalize included a powerful freekick in the 17th minute, which was impressively saved by Giorgi Mamardashvili.

His frustration grew when his appeals for a penalty, after what appeared to be a shirt pull, were ignored by the referee.

Ronaldo’s intense protests earned him a yellow card, and he continued to express his dissatisfaction with the officiating as he headed to the locker room at halftime.

In the second half, the Al-Nassr forward came close to scoring with a deflected close-range shot that resulted in a corner, marking his best opportunity before coach Roberto Martinez substituted him.

Clearly frustrated with his performance and the match’s outcome, Ronaldo displayed his displeasure by making a kicking gesture as he returned to the bench.

Portugal’s surprising defeat to Georgia highlighted a disappointing night for Ronaldo, who was visibly unhappy with both his individual performance and the team’s overall effort.
