The 2016 UEFA European Championship victors will have to go through the play-offs to secure a ticket the 2022 FIFA World Cup next year after missing out on top spot in Group A to the Serbians.

Santos and Ronaldo were pictured in what looked like an angry conversation after the full-time whistle, but the Portugal coach has insisted there were no issues.

"Nobody was explaining anything," Santos was quoted as saying by Eurosport.

"He was telling the other guy that there [in Serbia for a qualifier in March this year] he had scored a goal at the last minute and that the referee didn't count [it].

"That's what he was saying at the time.

"On the field, he said that we scored a goal there and the referee didn't, but it's his outburst.

"It's perfectly normal. Now no one goes after a game to explain what happened or didn't happen. I went to raise the players' heads."
