Cristiano Ronaldo has been accused of 'fake crying' after Portugal’s defeat to Morocco.
Morocco have shocked the sporting world yet again after knocking out Portugal to go through to the Semi-Finals of the World Cup.
Ronaldo's dream of winning the trophy has come to end as the 37-year-old has no doubt taken part in his last World Cup.
Portugal were quite simply out worked by the Moroccans who grabbed a lead in the first half.
The final score was Morocco 1-0 Portugal.
As expected, Ronaldo was gutted after the final whistle - yet some people thought he was 'fake crying' as he was walking down the tunnel.
"Ronaldo fake crying for the cameras, storming off to the changing rooms. Straight on the blower to Piers Morgan I reckon! Embarrassing behaviour," one person thought.
Another added: "Ronaldo can’t shake a hand? Instead fake crying for the cameras. Walking ego. Good riddance."
"Ronaldo off fake crying not congratulating Morocco or even thanking Portugal fans," a third commented.

Someone else thought: "Ronaldo was either laughing or fake crying lol. No human looks like that when they are crying."
"Amazing scenes! Well done Morocco. History makers!!
Was Ronaldo fake crying or smirking there?" another added.
Not all fans saw Ronaldo's tears in the same way, however, as one person wrote: "Can people calm their... and stop hating on Ronaldo. Not a fan either, but as a human I'm sure he can have his moment."
"It was his last shot at winning, he’s human. Now stop hating just bc it seems being Ronaldo hater is a trend," another added.
Someone else wrote: "How can you hate a figure like him? Or even make jokes about him? I remember plaiyng on my first console, first thing I wanted to do when i put the PRO disk in, play CR7. Even after a thousand times. Respect the GOAT and thank him for everything."
Well in the end, Morocco were reduced to 10 men in injury time when Walid Cheddira picked up two quick yellow cards but it was too late for Portugal to capitalise.
Morocco will now face the winners of England Vs France later this evening.
Kick off is at 7pm and if England can somehow stop Mbappe and overcome the French - expect 'football's coming home' chants to be sung all around the country tonight.
