“Cristiano had two or three chances which he usually puts in the back.”
Ronaldo looked like a bad day when he scored, especially at the final whistle. At 37, the Portuguese captain saw himself running for the second Nations League title after it was collected in 2019. CR7 grumbled at the Stade Lusitania after the setback for his side, who won three of their previous five matches in the competition. Once again a key player of the selection when he is now a substitute for Manchester United since the start of the season, Ronaldo has remained silent again during his 191 selection (117 goals).

Since November 2021, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored only 2 goals in 9 matches for Portugal. The five-time Ballon d’Or is clearly less clear, despite some positions in his favour on Tuesday night in Braga. After the meeting, his coach mistook him for a minor interference and wanted to be fatalistic. “What matters to me is the level of the team. Cristiano has had two or three chances that he usually puts deep in. We all expect him to score, he didn’t, that is football,” Fernando Santos commented. A competition that Ronaldo has never won.” Spain, like Portugal, is definitely a favorite to win the World Cup. Three days ago everything was bad for her and today everything is fine. It’s football, and there are ups and downs. The answer is to play the World Cup with the same conviction that we had before this meeting,” said Santos.
