A pitch invader was briskly escorted away from Cristiano Ronaldo just before he was able to take a photo with the player at Portugal’s visit to Lithuania for a Euro 2020 qualifier.
Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted after 79 minutes in which he was able to score four goals for Portugal in their 5-1 win at the LFF Stadium in Vilnius.
Oh so close… 🤳

A fan managed to get onto the pitch and grab the man of the match as he walked toward the dugout.
Pleased to have collared him, the interloper then took his time getting his phone ready for a photo.
🇵🇹 Cristiano Ronaldo = Europe's all-time top international scorer 👏

Despite some security staff giving him time to do this, another came over and wanted to know what the delay was before breaking the pair up.
The pitch invader appeared distressed at not being able to take the picture.
