F25 - Ronaldo stumbles but still looks for a penalty

Sport: Football Category: Diving
Submitted by: Anonymous
Context:

Cristiano Ronaldo is clear on goal early in a game for Real Madrid against Valencia.  He stumbles, in the penalty area, and falls to the ground, with no contact by the nearest Valencia defender but he looks back at the referee with a pleading look on his face as he hits the turf!

Outcome:

No penalty was awarded but neither was Ronaldo booked, for cheating in seeking a penalty.  The game ended 0-0, which lost Real ground on Barcelona but, at the end of the season, Real emerged as champions, with a record number of points, so this incident appears to have had no consequences, unless, of course, Ronaldo had been booked for cheating!
