Ronaldo could not contribute to Portugal’s victory
In the 185th anniversary match for Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo As usual, he played aggressively, but the goal did not come to the 37-year-old striker. CR7’s poor performance day ended with a shot that hit the crossbar in the last seconds of injury time.
After the game, coach Fernando Santos comforted the player: “We always analyze Ronaldo about the goals he scores. Whenever he doesn’t score, it’s because he’s unlucky. In my opinion, Ronaldo played a very successful game. He didn’t score, but he still had an excellent performance.”
Portugal will face North Macedonia in the final to win tickets World Cup 2022. North Macedonia caused a world football earthquake when it defeated the reigning EURO Italia champion with Trajkovski’s only goal in 90+2 injury time.
Obviously Portugal is much more appreciated than North Macedonia. However, coach Santos is still cautious: “I have played so many finals that it is not surprising anymore. I’ve won some games that I think are hard to win, I’ve lost at least one game that I think I’m going to win.
The final is a must win. Going into the final thinking at least the opponent’s name would be easier, it wasn’t. We will have the same respect we have for Turkey. If Turkey shows its strength, it is because Portugal respects them as it does Italy. The respect we have for Macedonia goes beyond that.”
