Euro 2024 LIVE: Harry Kane calls emergency meeting as Ronaldo safety concerns raised | Football | Sport

It was a busy afternoon for Cristiano Ronaldo during Portugal’s 3-0 win over Turkey on Saturday – and not for the reason you might think.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United superstar picked up a hat-trick, not of goals, but selfies.

All in all, a whopping four people gained access to the pitch during the second half of the Group F encounter.

And Portugal boss Roberto Martinez believes his main man was lucky to have not been hurt.

Speaking after the game, he said: “It is a concern, because today we were lucky that the intentions of the fans were good.

“We all love a fan that recognizes the big stars and the big icons in their minds. We all agree with that.

“But you can understand it was a very, very difficult moment – if those intentions are wrong, the players are exposed and we need to be careful with that.

“I don’t think that should happen on a football pitch.”
