Fans were told the Juventus star would play at least 45 minutes against a Korean League All Star team last July.

But when the Portuguese didn't come off the bench, fans were left outraged leading to the lawsuit.

Both supporters will receive $482 for "mental anguish" caused.

The lawyer at the centre of the case says he's representing a further 87 plaintiffs in relation to the match.
