Group F | PORTUGAL - AUSTRIA
Austrian fans to Cristiano Ronaldo: "Messi, Messi!"
During Portugal's 0-0 draw with Austria, the Austrian fans enjoyed themselves enormously singing about Leo Messi, Ronaldo's rival.
The Austrian fans in the ground for the Euro 2016 Group F match between Portugal and Austria decided to give Portugal's biggest star, Cristiano Ronaldo, a torrid time... by constantly chanting the name of his biggest football rival, Barcelona's Leo Messi.
"Messi, Messi", the Austria fans sang every time Cristiano missed a chance. And he missed a fair few. A header in front of goal in the first half which he put too close to keeper Almer. Then he put one past the post after a wonderful move from Portugal on the left. The Austrian's response to both? "Messi, Messi!"
Austrian's delight in Ronaldo's penalty miss
The biggest cheer and chant though were reserved for Ronaldo's penalty miss late in the second half. The Portuguese striker won the spot-kick, being hauled down as he ran through looking to connect with a cross, but he then slammed the penalty against the left-hand post.
"Messi, Messi!" came the response from the stands.
