CRISTIANO RONALDO made the odd move to change his shirt at half-time against Belgium.
The Juventus star switched from long to short sleeves with his Portugal side trailing 1-0 at the break.
Ronaldo came closest to scoring for his team in the first half but his free-kick was well saved by Thibaut Courtois.
But with Belgium on top of proceedings CR7 clearly felt a change was needed, particularly as he may have been feeling the heat in Seville.
Unfortunately for him and his team-mates the change of clothing did not do the trick.
Portugal certainly improved after half-time and came close to equalising, with Raphael Guerreiro striking the post.
But Ronaldo and Portugal could not find a way past Courtois and it was Belgium who progressed to the quarter-final.
That would have come as a surprise to fans, as many felt Ronaldo meant business by changing shirts, and therefore was likely to add to his five tournament goals.
One fan wrote on social media: "Ronaldo don change shirt. 2nd half Hattrick incoming. I suiiii in advance."
Another added in similar vein: "Ronaldo change shirt….brace loading."

One supporter also expected more from CR7 with this analogy: "Ronaldo switching to a short sleeved shirt is the equivalent of sitting forward in your seat during a game of fifa."
Ronaldo's failure to find an equaliser could mean the Belgium match is the last time we will see him wear a Portugal shirt of any kind at the Euros.
And he looked very deflated after the final whistle before being comforted by Belgium's Romelu Lukaku.
