    Cristiano Ronaldo appeared disgruntled after realising his teammate Bernardo Silva had beaten him to the Uefa Nations League Player of the Tournament award.

    Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo missed out on Nations League Player of the Tournament - and the Juventus man didn't look happy.

    The 34 year old Ronaldo scored a superb hattrick in the semifinals to almost single-handedly drag Portugal into the UEFA Nations League finals and would have thought he’d done enough to get voted the Player of the Tournament.

    However, as it would turn out, the honour was conferred upon his teammate and the equally impressive Bernardo Silva.At first, the No.7 shook his head as if to suggest it was a wrong decision but later congratulated his teammates.

    Silva, who assisted Goncalo Guedes’ solitary goal in the match, was one of Portugal’s main attacking proponents throughout the tournament and a constant thorn in Netherlands’ side in the final.

    As such, it was a deserved award and his teammates can be seen in the video patting him on his back and congratulating him the moment the announcement was made.
