Cristiano Ronaldo made his feelings quite clear to Fernando Santos by apparently yelling at the Portugal coach after his damaging loss to Serbia in Lisbon.

Portugal will have to qualify for next year’s World Cup in Qatar through the play-offs after an injury-time header from Aleksandar Mitrovic secured a dramatic 2-1 victory for the Serbs at the Estadio da Luz. .

All seemed to be going well for the hosts when Renato Sanches opened the scoring in two minutes, but Ajax star Dusan Tadic tied 31 minutes later before the Fulham forward’s moment of victory.

The result saw Serbia overtake Portugal again for first place in Group A, and Ronaldo was seen in tears after the final whistle.

But that was not the end of the Portuguese’s theatricality, who went on to make his frustration over his failure to secure automatic qualification very clear.

As players and staff on both sides shook hands after the final whistle, Serbian substitute Nemanja Radonjic first approached Ronaldo, who shared a brief hug with the Manchester United star.

Ronaldo then sees the 67-year-old Santos approaching and starts screaming and gesturing furiously with his arms, but the Portugal manager walks away after a brief handshake with the 36-year-old.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus star then puts his hands on his hips before heading towards the other players and the tunnel with his dejection still clear for all to see.

His frustration was not helped by his own inability to impact the game against Serbia, hitting two of his three shots in the entire wide game while the other was blocked.

It was a disappointing end to Ronaldo’s fruitful World Cup qualifying campaign heading into goal, scoring six in all games, including a hat-trick in a landslide win against Luxembourg last month.

But his hopes of qualifying for a fifth consecutive World Cup and adding to his tally of seven goals in 17 matches in the five tournaments will hinge on Portugal’s ability to negotiate a tiebreaker in March next year.

Portugal have played in every edition of the tournament since they last failed to qualify in 1998, and while Ronaldo threw his last tantrum, his teammate Bernardo Silva was more willing to apologize.

But his theatricality didn't stop there as he gestured furiously in the direction of Santos.

“It was a bad game for Portugal,” the Manchester City star said after the game. “We managed to score the goal early but from then on we stopped playing. I can’t find a great explanation for this, words fail me.

“It was terrible, we have to do much better because we have a tiebreaker in March and we will do everything we can to qualify. But at home, with 65,000 fans, we had to do much better.

‘I apologize to the Portuguese (fans) who saw a match that they should not have seen. The plan was to try to get the ball, we were completely dominated by Serbia. With the quality of our players, this is hardly admissible.

“I played a little limited, I tried to do my best until the moment came when I thought that another player would be in better condition.”
