Call that bust what you will, but Twitter lost its sleep over it, with many Portuguese fans calling it the most "luoco" (crazy) likeness they had seen of Ronaldo anywhere.
'Brandi Chastain is one of the most handsome athletes I've ever covered. US President Jimmy Carter or actor Gary Busey? "But it's nice", she said diplomatically of the plaque, according to the Associated Press.
Chastain's plaque reminded people of a now infamous statue created of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Smith, now a soccer coach at Santa Clara University, explained that the bronze plaque honoring his wife - a two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time World Cup champion - did not serve her justice because she is such a lovely powerhouse - something the 1999 photo of her captured for all of eternity.
While Ronaldo is widely considered one of the best-looking athletes on earth, social media users compared his bronze likeness to Stephen King's famous killer clown, Pennywise; Beaker from "The Muppet Show"; and even the character Sloth from "The Goonies".
Yeah, that looks more like Crispin Glover after an allergic breakout than Chastain...
Added her husband, Jerry Smith: "It's really not flattering".
'I am not happy with it either and I made the offer to redo it when I spoke to Brandi this morning, ' O'Brien said. But what everyone is talking about is the plaque she received that, to put it kindly, is unflattering.
Brandi Chastain is an American legend. "But I'm not an artist".
