Posted By: Staff

Cape Town, June 30(ANI): Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo took out his frustration of their World Cup exit by spitting towards a TV cameraman after Tuesday's 0-1 defeat to Spain in their Round of 16 match.

Ronaldo, whose team endured a particularly poor night -where they were unable to utilize many opportunities they had, spat at the cameraman, who was trailing him at the final whistle, The Sun reports.

Spain midfielder David Villa fired a 63-minute goal, his fourth goal of the tournament, which eliminated Portugal, and sent his team into the last eight.

Carlos Queiroz's men dominated the game, but were frustrated for long periods by a strong Portugal defense.

Spain now plays Paraguay in the quarterfinals on Saturday. The South Americans progressed on penalties 5-3 after a 0-0 draw with Japan. (ANI)
