Instead, though, Ronaldo ushered the security staff away to give the supporter time to take the snap, even if his expression betrayed disappointment at a 0-0 draw. 

The striker will be hoping to take a happier photo after Portugal's last game of Group F when they play for a spot in the last 16 against Hungary.
