Speaking to the media alongside head coach Fernando Santos, Ronaldo didn’t look best pleased about the bottles of Coca-Cola on his table for the press conference.

NFL superstar Tom Brady echoed Ronaldo’s advice on Twitter. The 43-year-old wrote: “It’s almost like the veterans know what they’re doing…”
