A ball boy joined Portugal’s team photo before their game versus Wales. I’m surprised this type of photobomb doesn’t happen more often in world football. Especially when it’s Cristiano Ronaldo you’re standing next to!
Image credit for the ball boy from Portugal goes to Fox Soccer of course.
You’ve got to love Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction as he sees the ball boy has joined Portugal’s pre-game picture. Can you blame the ball boy though, why not join the pic? Ronaldo has a good laugh about it.
The kid is wearing a UEFA Euro shirt, and he appears to be apart of the ceremony at the beginning of the game, but then he steps away from the group to get a picture with Ronaldo…and then sneak or photobomb the team picture.
Cristiano Ronaldo could have easily pushed the ball boy away or told him to get lost. Instead, he has a good laugh at the boy’s determination to get in the pic.
The last interaction Cristiano Ronaldo had with a ball boy was a bit different. In a game versus Atletico Madrid, a ball who obviously favored his home team, Atletico, didn’t give the ball to Ronaldo when he ran over to get it. Instead, he gestured at Ronaldo and threw it past him. But even in that situation Ronaldo handled it well.
