The armband that Cristiano Ronaldo smashed into the dirt after his apparent winning goal in a World Cup qualifier against Serbia was disallowed was auctioned off on Tuesday.
The armband was sent to a charitable organisation that is raising funds for the surgery of a 6-month-old Serbian boy with spinal muscular atrophy by a stadium worker who picked it up after the match ended in a 2-2 draw on Saturday in Belgrade.
The blue armband with the letter C will be auctioned off online for three days, according to the group.
Ronaldo walked off the field moments before the final whistle after his injury-time goal was not allowed by officials. The Juventus player dinked the ball over the Serbia goalkeeper and it apparently crossed the line before being cleared by an opposing defender.
While heading straight into the dressing room before the final whistle, Ronaldo angrily threw down his captain armband near the touchline.
Ronaldo was publicly criticized for the action and some believe his angry display could lead to FIFA sanctions if the governing body deems his reaction to be offensive or violent conduct.
