Ronaldo’s girlfriend bullied by trolls as Portugal exit

Portugal

Moscow, July 1: Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez has been targeted by trolls after Portugal was ousted from the FIFA World Cup after losing to Uruguay in pre-quarterfinals. Angry critics have blamed Georgina for Portugal’s 1-2 defeat in Saturday’s pulsating game in which Ronaldo failed to find the net.

Georgina, 24, has been harassed on her Instagram account since the incumbent European champions bowed out. One of her recent posts, in which she wished good luck to Ronaldo and Portugal’s team, has been swarmed with angry and malicious comments, reports Sputnik news agency. Some took this as an opportunity to throw Uruguay’s triumph on her face, pasting Uruguay’s flag and comments like “Uruguay, jeje,” “Good bay Portugal” and “You must say now Cristiano go to house.” IANS
