Cristiano Ronaldo has never had a good lose, and there are many cases and examples that have been given. Obviously, nobody likes to fail, and less, a professional and a warrior like the Portuguese star, and that is completely understandable. And even more rage when it is not deserved, as happened to his team, Portugal, which started as one of the great favorites for the title of the Eurocup.
More than anything, because they were the current champions, after the triumph in 2016, and after winning the UEFA Nations League in 2019. But, after being framed in the group of death, and qualifying as a miracle, they had to dance with one of the ugliest, the Belgium of Roberto Martínez, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois and company. A tough obstacle in the round of 16, which they could not overcome, going home at the first exchange rate.
And that they had plenty of chances to score, but they ran into the Real Madrid goalkeeper, who was unbeatable. A solitary goal from Thorgan Hazard, from Borussia Dortmund, was enough to kick ‘el Bicho’, who barely intervened in the game. Of course, you can go with your head held high, because at the moment he is the top scorer of the tournament, with five targets, although three have been from eleven meters. And he surpassed Michel Platini as the competition’s top all-time scorer.
Not only that, but he also equaled Iranian Ali Daei as the player with the most goals in a national team, and very soon he will be able to surpass him. Even so, nothing served as consolation for the Juventus footballer from Turin, who has had a most disappointing course, since they have finished fourth in Serie A, and in the Champions League they were also eliminated in the second round. He hoped to heal his wounds with a good role with his team.
But it could not be, and he left the field visibly angry. So much so that the former Manchester United and Sporting de Portugal did not think of anything other than throwing the captain’s armband on the grass, and kicking it.
That has cost him a lot of criticism.
