Cristiano had scored his first international goal, but had also succeed in helping Portugal reach the finals. Later, in his career he received the Silver Boot for being the second highest goal scorer. Although, one wrong decision made by Cristiano may end up ruining his future career.

Now after 9 years from the case being close it is now re-opened again. The Las Vegas police had re-opened the case because Mayorga is now suffering psychological damage due to the incident. According to Mayorga lawsuit Cristiano and the rest of his team had taken advantage of her weak and emotional mindset. Though Mayorga mentions that she was forced to sign a settlement and disclosure agreement back in 2009. She then later mentions how she was paid by Cristiano $375,000 to stay silent. In the beginning, according to the judge Mayorga had feared public humiliation if she had mention Cristiano as the person who raped her. Now many of Cristiano sponsors are concerned if the rape is true.
