In a sensational claim, the ITV pundit claimed the 23-year-old fouled the Portuguese superstar - leading to a contentious penalty call which was subsequently converted by the iconic forward.
Salisu was embroiled in controversy after American referee Ismail Elfath awarded the penalty against the Ghanaians after he adjudged the defender to have fouled Ronaldo.
However, television replays shows the 40-yea-old official got it wrong after it emerged the Southampton defender got to the ball before Cristiano Ronaldo.
But former World Cup ace and Premier League winner with Manchester United, Roy Keane claims the penalty was correct.
"I think it’s a penalty because the defender (Salisu) is so clumsy.”
"We’re watching it and thinking stay on your feet, don’t give the referee a chance. There’s no need for him to go in there, (Cristiano) Ronaldo is going away from goal."
