Georgina Rodriguez added weight to growing rumours of an engagement to Cristiano Ronaldo by revealing a sparking ring on her wedding finger as she cheered the footballer to victory at the World Cup in Moscow on Wednesday afternoon.
The 24-year old wore the diamond encrusted ring while watching Ronaldo, 33, thump home the decisive winning goal against Morocco, his fourth of the tournament, as Portugal played their second Group B game at Luzhniki Stadium.
The glittering accessory gave rise to further speculation that the footballer has proposed to former Gucci store employee Georgina, who gave birth to her first child with father-of-four Ronaldo in November.

The brunette was clearly in good spirits throughout an otherwise drab match, and was seen wearing a Portugal shirt - despite being born in Argentina and raised in Spain.
Curiously, it appeared to be the number seven shirt worn by Ronaldo for their opening match against her native Spain, during which he netted a memorable hat-trick.
However she appeared to be nonplussed by footballing allegiances as she waved the Portugal flag and chatted with friends throughout the game.

Just days before the World Cup, Ronaldo's mother Maria Dolores sounded wedding bells for footballer by describing Georgina as her future 'daughter-in-law' in an interview with Cristina magazine.
The Madeira-born matriarch, who is said to have had a difficult relationship with some of Cristiano’s ex-lovers including Russian model Irina Shayk, told the Portuguese publication that she 'likes' the former Gucci employee, before branding her a 'future daughter-in-law and a 'very calm person'.
The grandmother added: 'She is the mother of my grand-daughter. She is a future daughter-in-law. She’s not my daughter-in-law yet [but] she's a future daughter-in-law.'

Messi gets my G.O.A.T: Is Ronaldo mocking his rival's 'Greatest Of All Time' photoshoot with a goat by growing a GOATEE beard and celebrating goals by pulling imaginary whiskers?
Fans believe Ronaldo's new facial hair, along with his 'goat beard' and whiskers goal celebrations, is a message to Messi that he is the G.O.A.T. -'greatest of all time'.
Messi currently stars in an Adidas advert in which he poses with a real live goat, something which football fans think may have irked Ronaldo.
Petty beard: Fans believe Ronaldo's new goatee, which follows his goal celebration on Friday that saw him stroke an imaginary beard, is a not-so-subtle dig at Messi
The photo sees the Argentinian player stroke the goat, while 'Leo Messi - G.O.A.T.' is emblazoned across the bottom, sending a clear message that he - not Ronaldo - is the 'greatest of all time'.
Several fans took to Twitter today after Ronaldo turned up to the Portugal-Morocco game with his new beard, and claimed there was more to it than just facial hair.
One person wrote: 'Messi does photoshoots but Ronaldo grows an actual goatee hahah [sic]'.
Fan theories: Many took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the reason for Ronaldo's beard, with fans of both players coming to the conclusion that it was a message for Messi
Another asked: 'Is Ronaldo growing that goatee to take the p**s out that Messi goat campaign [sic]?'
Sports journalist and author Grant Wahl said: 'Ronaldo growing a goatee and celebrating goals by grabbing imaginary goat whiskers — in response to Messi’s G.O.A.T. portrait with a real live goat — is my favorite petty World Cup subplot'
A Messi fan called Ronaldo 'obsessed', writing; 'Messi does an ad with a goat (because he is THE GOAT), and now he makes a "goat" celebration and grows a goatee. Inferiority complex is real. Messi lives in his mind rent free.'
Ronaldo and Messi have been two of football's top players for the past decade and are rivals in the Spanish league.
On Friday, the Portugal captain celebrated his opening goal against Spain with a 'goat beard' brush to the chin, a gesture which was interpreted by some as a dig at the Argentinian forward.
As the forward scored during Wednesday's game against Morocco, he appeared to be twisting imaginary whiskers as he celebrated on the pitch.
