Italy golden boy Francesco Totti has been caught up in a spitting storm following the goalless draw with Denmark.
The Roma superstar has been captured on camera clashing with Christian Poulsen during his country's Group C opener in Guimaraes.
Danish newspaper DR published frame-by-frame pictures appearing to show Totti spitting towards Poulsen and Uefa may investigate the matter.
The photo reproduced is courtesy of the newspaper and the complete sequence of images can be seen on the DR website.
The authorities are determined to stamp out misconduct in Portugal and will be alerted by the images.
Totti was booked by referee Manuel Mejuto Gonzalez during the game but the alleged incident, prompting comparisons with Frank Rijkaard's infamous clash with Rudi Voller in the 1990 World Cup, went largely unnoticed.
