Cristiano Ronaldo fumes and slams turf in anger after being denied clear penalty while playing for Al-Nassr | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO was left fuming after being denied a penalty while playing for Al-Nassr on Friday.

Al-Nassr were leading Al-Raed 2-0 when the incident occurred at the 56-minute mark.

Ronaldo, who opened the scoring early in the game, made a direct run into the penalty area from the left before attempting to shoot.

But before he could strike the ball, Al-Raed defender Mubarak Abdulrahman Al Rajeh slid in and attempted to make a tackle.

Despite the 19-year-old's attempts to win the ball, he appeared to slightly catch Ronaldo, who went tumbling to the ground.

The former Manchester United star immediately appealed for a penalty, but he was left furious when his claims were denied by the referee.

He then slammed the floor in frustration as his team-mates continued to appeal.

However, following a VAR check, the referee's decision was not overturned.

Al-Nassr went on to win the game 4-0 thanks to goals from Ronaldo, Abdulrahman Ghareeb, Mohammed Maran and Abdulmajeed Al-Sulaiheem.

They now sit second in the Saudi Super League, three points adrift of bitter rivals Al-Ittihad.
