Euro 2024, Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo relieved after quarter-final qualification

Helpless in front of the cages since the start of the Euros, Cristiano Ronaldo was also silent in front of the goals in the round of 16 against Slovenia on Monday night. Against a strong Slovenian team gathered in their own half, the Lusitano captain saw all his efforts go wide. He could have been the hero of this tough match, but his well-taken penalty was saved by Jan Oblak.

Fortunately for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and the Portuguese, Diogo Costa was in the Lusitania cage. The 24-year-old goalkeeper pushed his team into the quarter-finals, stopping three Slovenian attempts during the penalty shootout. A great relief for CR7 who will go through all the emotions, between tears, tears and laughter.

“I didn’t miss a penalty all season. When I needed it most, Oblak saved it, Ronaldo regretted it in the mixed zone, and I’m still happy with the result. I think Portugal deserved to go through because we played more aggressively. Slovenia spent almost the entire match defending. It was very difficult and the whole team must be congratulated, especially the goalkeeper. He made three excellent saves.“Captain Lusitano confirmed, as reported by Maxi footIn the quarter-finals, Portugal will face France after beating Belgium (1-0).
