The referee clearly did not respond to Rooney’s stamping on Carvalho’s goolies. He reacted to Rooney shoving Ronaldo. Then Gary Neville got into it. Rooney got red-carded because of his shove. Ronaldo knew exactly what he was doing, he knows Rooney has a short fuse. The four players involved not coincidentally play for the EPL. Rooney, Ronaldo, Neville play for Man U and Carvalho for Chelsea. Tell me there is not a bit of history there.
Alan Shearer commentating,” Rooney could go back to the Man U training grounds and stick one on Ronaldo.”
Today Portugal play Germany. Ronaldo will get booed again. I hope so.
