Iran Fans Turn Up Outside Ronaldo's Hotel To Wake Him Up
Iran fans rocked up outside Cristiano Ronaldo's hotel window making a lot of noise, presumably so he'd be feeling pretty knackered for their team's clash against Portugal later today.
Around 50 Iranian fans turned up to the hotel in Saransk, where the Portuguese team are staying, with horns, a drum and vuvuzelas - oh and very loud voices, which they used to chant.
A loss for either team in tonight's match could see them out of the competition, with Iran straight out if they lose and Portugal being reliant on Spain getting tonked by Morocco to see them through, so there's a lot riding on this.
The noisy crowd did manage to get the attention of Ronaldo, who appeared at the window. The Portuguese star was filmed wagging his finger at the fans, like a primary school teacher telling off a rowdy classroom, before putting his hands together under his head - the international sign for 'LADs, please, I'm trying to get some kip'.
If anything, the sight of Ronaldo begging for a bit of sleep spurred the fans on even more, though, and they continued to make a racket.

The Iranian fans have good reason to be worried about Ronaldo after his amazing World Cup performance so far - scoring a hat-trick against Spain and getting the winner against Morocco.
However, as good as he's been, he's still trailing one goal behind England's Harry Kane. Sorry, mate, but it's coming home.
And neither man can claim the best bit of the World Cup, either, because that actually belongs to one of the Iranian players.
During their match against Spain Milad Mohammadi kissed the ball, pointed to the sky and looked like he was going to be helping his team equalise. However, when he went ahead and attempted a forward roll, he seemingly forgot what he was going, refused to let go of the ball and... well, look:

Sadly, his team failed to get a goal and Spain won 1-0, so now it's all down to tonight's game.
