Cristiano Ronaldo left many shocked when he left the field on a stretcher after a leg injury, minutes into match. The Portugal captain fell to the ground clutching his knee midway through the first half. The pain seemed unbearable for Ronaldo who sat on turf with tears in his eyes.

While the star player's injury meant bad news for the match, what was worse was a moth landing on his eye. An incident of mere 10 seconds made the moth a star of a lifetime by Twitterverse. By half time, there were not only more than 30 accounts on Twitter but also theories about the latest star of the show.

In case you missed it, this is what happened!

Here are some of the tweets.
