After yesterday’s game when Iceland tied Portugal 1-1 in the 2016 Euro Cup in France, Portugal’s captain Christiano Ronaldo criticized Iceland for over-celebrating and has since taken heat from football fans on social media, as mbl.is reports.

“Poor Ronaldo...instead of ‘taking it like a man’ he’s whining like a two year old,” Mike From Gokwe tweeted. Dave Phillips added: “After yesterday’s events the normal advice would be to take a long hard look in the mirror, but that’s merely Ronaldo’s daily routine.”

During stoppage time, Ronaldo was given two free kicks but failed to score.
