Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the 32nd minute of Real Madrid's match at home to Sevilla on Wednesday evening, and after the goal, Ronaldo celebrated with an apparent swipe at FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Earlier this week, when seeming to speak about Ronaldo, Blatter was quoted as saying: "The other one, this is something else. The other one is like a commander on the field of play." Blatter also suggested Ronaldo spends more time at the hairdresser than his rival Lionel Messi.

So, after scoring his first goal of the night, a penalty, Ronaldo celebrated with a salute as any commander would do. It's hard to know for sure, but it seemed like a reference to Blatter's comments.

Guess he couldn't figure out how to do a hairdresser charade, then.

Ronaldo finished with three goals as Real Madrid won a crazy match, 7-3.
