Portugal defeated Wales on Wednesday night to make their way through to the final of the European Championships, as Ronaldo looks to make up for defeat in front of their home fans in 2004. 

Despite all that pressure and tension that he would have been feeling ahead of the match, Ronaldo was still on good spirits right before kick off as the team were posing for their squad photo, thanks to one mischievous ball boy. 

The young man managed to sneak his way up to the team to get into the photo and then, with nothing to lose, figured he might as well see if he could sneak a selfie with the team's biggest player while he was there. 

Although he did see the funny side at the start, Ronaldo looked to have had enough by the time the second selfie was snapped, but the young boy ran off absolutely delighted with himself. 

This is not the first time this tournament that the Portuguese has stopped to snap a pic with a fan on the pitch, showing a human side to the record-breaking machine that he is.
