Ronald’s armband raises over N28 million
An armband thrown away in annoyance by Cristiano Ronaldo after his goal was disallowed has raised a staggering 64,000 euros (N28.6 million) at a charity auction.
The bid it was gathered was made by an anonymous bidder.
With seconds to go, Ronaldo thought he had netted the crucial winner at 2-2, when the ball appeared to cross the goalline before Stefan Mitrovic cleared.
But without VAR in use, the goal was not awarded.
A furious Ronaldo received a yellow card for his protests and at the final whistle, as he stormed from the pitch, he threw his captain’s armband to the ground.
Djordje Vukicevic, a local firemen who was deployed at the stadium, picked it up and immediately contacted a regional sports channel with the idea of auctioning it for charity.
The referee later apologised to Portugal for the mistake.
