Cristiano Ronaldo booked for scoring a goal (watch video)

-Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the first player in history to be booked for scoring a goal

-The player assumed he had scored a late winner, but the goal was disallowed due to a lack of technology.



Cristiano Ronaldo managed to latch onto a long diagonal cross into the box and kicked the ball past Serbia goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic and towards goal with the World Cup qualifier tied in extra time.

As the ball seemed to cross the line before being hooked clear, Ronaldo then wheeled away in celebration, only for the officials to wave play on. Ronaldo continued to celebrate in front of the assistant referee, who had denied the goal, and then pled for the goal to be acknowledged.
