Something tells us that the lads at the Oxford dictionary might be looking at putting this picture next to the definition of irony

It was a heated affair when Portugal and Sweden clashed last night with a place in the World Cup on the line, and it was the home side that came out of Lisbon with a 1-0 lead to take to the away leg.

However, it was a pretty incident filled game and one of the more notable ones was Cristiano Ronaldo trying to give Mikael Lustig a headbutt, and then complaining that the defender was faking the whole thing. Irony, we hear you say...

In the video the camera initially cuts away but goes back for a replay of what happened, but there was a particularly great picture of Ronaldo making fun of Lustig snapped by the photographers at the match.

Ronaldo went on to get the winning goal, but we think that the second leg may well be a very spicy affair, especially after Zlatan put a little bit of hurting on Pepe with a hard challenge too.
