Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal Ousted from World Cup
Landing a premature trip back home, Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portugal team have been ousted from the 2010 World Cup.
Taking on Spain for a quarterfinal berth on Tuesday (June 29) in Pretoria, Ronaldo and his squad were held scoreless - ending up losing the battle of Iberian peninsula neighbors by a score of 1-0.
As for the scoring, David Villa netted the lone goal which sends the defending European champions to a match against Paraguay.
Meanwhile, Cristiano wasn't his usual noticeable self in the second half - becoming frustrated with the officiating during the latter stages of the intense matchup.
Sealing Portugal's fate was a debatable red card dealt to defender Ricardo Costa in the 88th minute of action.
