Peru fans greet Lionel Messi by chanting Cristiano Ronaldo’s name

During Euro 2012 and the qualifying process that led up to it, groups of opposing fans tried to get under Cristiano Ronaldo's skin by chanting Leo Messi's name at him. This happened at airports, outside hotels and during matches. And now, Peru fans have decided to give Messi himself a taste of Ronaldo's mild annoyance by chanting "Cristiano, Cristiano" at him as he got off the bus and entered Argentina's hotel ahead of Tuesday's World Cup qualifier.

Suddenly Cristiano Ronaldo isn't so sad anymore...
