Cristiano Ronaldo has been branded "annoying" by Hungary manager Marco Rossi after his side were eliminated from Euro 2020.

Hungary's valiant performances in the so-called 'Group of Death' saw them hold France and Germany to draws, but their opening-game defeat by Portugal left them facing an uphill battle to reach the knockout stage.

Rossi's side kept Ronaldo and Co. at bay for well over 80 minutes only for Raphael Guerreiro to break the deadlock with a deflected strike.

Ronaldo then converted a penalty won by Rafa Silva in the closing minutes before doubling his tally in added time after rounding Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi.

The 36-year-old marked both goals in trademark fashion by performing a 180-degree spin in mid air and shouting "siu!" as he landed with both arms outstretched.

Ronaldo's celebration is arguably the most iconic in football but it was not met kindly by Rossi, who warned the five-time Ballon d'Or winner that he is rubbing people up the wrong way.

Rossi told La Gazzetta dello Sport : "Ronaldo is a great champion but at times he can be annoying. After the penalty with us he celebrated as if he had scored in the final. People notice these things."

Rossi – who won the Coppa Italia as a player with Sampdoria in 1994 – also declared he has no intention of returning to manage in his native country despite drawing widespread praise at Euro 2020.

"I don't give a damn about revenge and I'm not interested in returning to Italy," he said. "I'm happy if I left a footprint in Hungarian football."

Addressing the 2-2 draw with Germany, Rossi added: "I slept a maximum of 15 minutes last night and it's weird.

Is Marco Rossi's criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo fair? Comment below.

"I would never have thought that a draw with Germany would leave me with this feeling. I know we were good but I'm sorry."

Meanwhile, Portugal drew 2-2 with France on Wednesday to progress to the last 16 as one of the four best third-place teams in the group stage.

Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in either half to take his tally for his country to 109, equalling the all-time record for international goals in the process.

Reacting to the draw, which set up a last-16 clash with Belgium, Portugal boss Fernando Santos said: "We were very strong today, very consistent. We built our game well, starting from behind.

"Overall, we deserved this draw, although we can always do better. But we achieved our goal by qualifying tonight. I knew Hungarians could surprise anyone. I had warned my team.

"We absolutely wanted to win this match, I told my players to do everything to win but we had to keep our organisation. France is very difficult to beat."
