World Cup: Jay Jay Okocha reacts as Ronaldo tries to claim Bruno Fernandes’ goal for Portugal

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has insisted that Portugal’s first goal against Uruguay in Monday’s World Cup tie was clearly midfielder Bruno Fernandes’ goal.

Portugal defeated Uruguay 2-0 in their second World Cup tie, thanks to Fernandes’ brace.

Fernandes’ first goal was initially given to Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, but it was later confirmed that the 37-year-old did not head in the cross from Fernandes before the ball ended up in the back of the net.

Ronaldo celebrated as he tried to claim the goal, but Okocha believes the former Manchester United forward was unfortunate because there are cameras everywhere.

“I love the celebration there, which every striker does, trying to claim any goal opportunity, but unfortunately for him [Ronaldo], there are cameras everywhere now. It was clearly Bruno’s goal,” Okocha told SuperSport.

“Credit to him for the run, I can give him the assist. Great assist for Ronaldo, but unfortunately for him, he did not claim that one.”
