Tiktukno: summary of the day's events in sports, 29.11 (Sport1)
In Portugal, they are still celebrating their team's qualification to the round of 16 thanks to last night's (Monday) 0:2 victory over Uruguay, but even this morning the question that preoccupies many is whether or not Cristiano Ronaldo touched the first ball that defeated the Celeste.
Bruno Fernandes lifted from the left towards Cristiano Ronaldo, who at first appeared to have hit the ball into the corner and he celebrated the goal as if it was his own, but after watching the replays from many different angles, FIFA officials decided that the 37-year-old striker did not touch the ball, so the goal It was credited to Bruno Fernandez, who in extra time completed a double with a penalty kick from 11 meters.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo maintains that he touched the ball lightly and that it was his goal.
Even the one who until recently was his teammate at Manchester United, Fernandez the scorer of the double, clarified that he tried to pass to Cristiano Ronaldo and said that "it seems that he touched the ball", and indeed on the website "ojogo" it was published that Cristiano Ronaldo is not ready to give up the goal that was taken from him.
"The ball touched me!", Cristiano Ronaldo told local television and complained about it to his team members as well.
Therefore, a special panel on behalf of FIFA is expected to be convened that today will decide whether to leave the goal in the name of Bruno Fernandez or return it to Cristiano, who very much hopes that his tally will rise even before the final match of the group stage to 119 goals in the Celso uniform.
