The Portugal team’s dreams of winning the FIFA World Cup 2018 were shattered after they lost to Uruguay in Round 16. Thereafter, the social media trolls have not spared Georgina Rodriguez. She is better known as the girlfriend of Cristiana Ronaldo – the football legend, and Portuguese professional footballer.
During the match between Uruguay and Portugal, Uruguay’s national team player Edinson Cavani is recorded to have scored 2 goals and won the match for his team with a 2-1 victory at the match in Sochi, France – the hosts of this year’s World Cup. Post winning the stipulated match, Uruguay entered the quarter semi-finals and are scheduled to play their next match against France.
In fact, Cavani was responsible for giving his team a lead early in the game; he scored the match’s first goal for his team. During the first half of the game, Uruguay was ahead in the game. But, after the break, Portugal was granted a corner kick and Portugal’s Pepe used his head to put the ball in the net and struck a goal for the Portugal team that led to leveling the scores of both teams. This was the first time in the tournament that Cavani’s defense was breached. Then, Cavani scored another goal. However, shortly thereafter, Cavani was injured and in turn, replaced by Cristhian Stuani. Incidentally, he was helped by Ronaldo as he left the field.
After Portugal bowed out of the World Cup, his partner Georgina was trolled on social media. Her Instagram account seems to have been inundated with nasty comments. In fact, she was trolled unsparingly on the social media site. Even Uruguay’s flags were posted and swarmed by troll messages. It was also reported that Iranians sought revenge for their national team’s defeat at the hands of Portugal and started trolling her; also, they posted Iranian flags.
There were some people who, also, trolled her for being a bad omen as she was present at the Sochi game where Portugal bowed out of the World Cup.
Georgina is a Spanish National; and during the year 2016, she started to date Portugal’s star footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. In the year 2017, the couple became parents to their daughter, Alana Martina. Also, she is a mother to Ronaldo’s 2 sons and 1 daughter; they were born via surrogacy earlier.
