Cristiano Ronaldo had an eventful 25 minutes on the pitch in the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday.

The Portuguese star came on in the 57th minute against Barcelona at the Camp Nou and by the 81st minute, he had scored a wonder-goal, earned two yellow cards and shoved the referee.
Most of the action all took place in a two-minute span. First Ronaldo scored a tremendous goal, thundering a strike home to give his side a 2-1 lead in the 79th minute of the first leg of the Spanish curtain-raiser. 
Ronaldo earned a yellow card immediately after his goal for removing his shirt in his trademark style. 
Just two minutes later, the 32-year-old was shown a second yellow card for an alleged dive in the box, prompting him to momentarily lose his cool and shove the referee. 
Madrid would go on to win the match 3-1, as Marco Asensio added a late goal to give the Champions League winners a big advantage after the first leg. 
Ronaldo will be suspended for the second leg, and will now be forced to wait and see if there will be any further suspension for his shove.
