Georgina Rodriguez believes it is a “shame” for the fans that her partner Cristiano Ronaldo has a limited role for Portugal against Switzerland.

Despite a crushing 6-1 World Cup round of 16 victory, the Argentine supermodel took to her Instagram page after the match to explain how desperate the fans in the stadium were to see Ronaldo come down the pitch.

Ronaldo was left on the bench by Portugal coach Fernando Santos until the 73rd minute, while his replacement – Benfica star Goncalo Ramos – scored a hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Switzerland.

The former Manchester United star – who has scored just one goal so far in Qatar – failed to find the net after coming on as a substitute with his side already leading 5-1.

It was actually Ronaldo’s sister all over. After the match, the Portugal coach said Santos ‘humiliated’ his brother by bringing him down.

Ronaldo’s girlfriend also felt the need to address her partner’s absence, sending a brief message to Santos for letting her husband out of the starting line-up.

The 28-year-old took to Instagram after the match, which was played at Lusail Stadium, to upload a picture of herself during the match and wrote: “Congratulations Portugal.

While the eleven players are singing the anthem, all targets are set on you.

What a shame not to be able to enjoy the best player in the world for 90 minutes. The fans kept calling you and shouting your name.

“I hope that God and your good friend Fernando will continue to hold hands and give us another night.”

Ahead of his side’s round of 16, Santos revealed he “didn’t like” what he saw of Ronaldo in the match against South Korea, with the superstar looking furious when he lost in the second half.

Ronaldo initially made it clear that he was taking his comments from opposition player Cho Joo Songsi, which Santos initially confirmed.

But fast-forward to his next press conference and Santos revealed he had a word with the centre-forward about his actions – possibly explaining why he was left on the bench.

It was even claimed in Portugal that Ronaldo threatened to quit his team, which was later denied.

However, after Tuesday’s victory, Santos insisted he had no problem with Ronaldo and that the controversy was over.

He told reporters: “I have a very close relationship. I’ve known him since he was 19 at Sporting and then he started playing for the national team when I arrived in 2014.

“Ronaldo and I never misinterpret the human and personal side with the manager and the player.

“I will always consider him a very important player in the team.”

Portugal will meet Morocco in the quarter-finals at Al Thumama Stadium on Saturday at 3:00 pm. It is not clear if he will play, although his boss insists that every member of the team is essential, including his star player.

Ronaldo denounced rumors he was leaving the national team with a tweet on Thursday that said, “A group on the brink of collapse by outside forces. A nation too brave to allow itself to fear any opponent. A team in the truest sense of the word, which will fight for the dream to the end! Believe with us! Strength, Portugal!
