Every footballer must nourish their ego, but there has never been any doubt that the Portuguese attacker has an extravagant craving for appreciation. His actions last Sunday, when he refused to celebrate his two goals against Grenada then told reporters afterwards that he is "sad", were typically self-centred, and generated headlines and comments across the world. The desire to be a pre-eminent figure is the player's defining feature, but there should be little surprise that it results in the occasional strop.
