After having flagged up Daniele De Rossi for diving in the Italy-Paraguay match, and Cristiano Ronaldo showed his bad side in a soccer match against Ivory Coast. In fact, the popular Ronaldo acted a lot of foul, and every time the referees were “whistled” in favor of Portugal.
No less than four examples of diving have been flagged up:
1. Didier Zokora booked for going to ground, although it does appear Ronaldo went down a little easily.
2. The handbags with Guy Demel as CR9 used his famous “soft legs,” the Portuguese winger was looking for the foul and the ref was not fooled, eventually booking both players.
3. A tap from Ivory Coast left back Tiene saw Ronaldo produce some trademark play acting and rolling around on the floor.
4. Probably the worst of the lot as Ronaldo cons the linesman into giving a free-kick after a “little shove” from Zokora.
