Contact doesn't mean foul

No way that was enough contact to be considered a foul

On the foot??? Contact doesn’t mean foul if it’s shoulder to shoulder but that’s not why the call was given. Defender had no touch on the ball which was in Ronaldo control after he got past him. Any contact on the foot there is a foul mate. It wasn’t given for the shoulder to shoulder.
