Dutch referee Danny Makkelie has offered Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal an apology after disallowing the striker's goal against Serbia.

Portugal had to settle for a 2-2 draw in their 2022 World Cup qualifying clash after Ronaldo was denied a last-gasp winner by the match officials.

Replays showed that the Juventus striker's shot had crossed the line before Aleksandar Mitrovic was able to clear the ball away, but Makkelie waved play on after consulting with his linesman, which he has now admitted was the wrong decision.
