‘We Crashed Out Too Soon’ – Ronaldo Laments Portugal’s Early Exit At Euro 2020

Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about Portugal’s elimination from the Euro 2020 stating the holders left the tournament too soon.

Portugal’s hopes of retaining their European title came to an abrupt end, courtesy of a 1-0 defeat to Belgium at the round of 16 stage on Sunday.

Ronaldo enjoyed an impressive individual display at the tournament, having scored five goals in the group stage and broken a few records in the process.

However, it was not to be for Ronaldo and his teammates as they crashed out of the tournament on the weekend.

And the 36-year-old forward took to social media on Monday to reflect on Portugal’s elimination.

“We didn’t get the result we wanted and we left the race sooner than we wanted,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

“But we are proud of our journey, we gave everything to renew the title of European Champions and this group proved that it can still give much joy to the Portuguese.

“Our fans were tireless in supporting the team from start to finish. We ran and fought for them, in order to live up to the trust they placed in us.

“It was not possible to get where we all wanted, but here is our sincere and profound thanks.

“Congratulations to Belgium and good luck to all the teams that remain in the competition.

“As for us, we will come back stronger. Forca Portugal!”

    See passion. See love and kindness in Portugal’s team.

    The players understand and the demands from their fans.

    That kind of spirit is not in the Super Eagles no more.

    The 94, 96 and Siasia team has this kind of spirit but Oga Rohr Super Eagles team?

    It is well.

    “Our fans were tireless in supporting the team from start to finish. We ran and fought for them, in order to live up to the trust they placed in us.

    “It was not possible to get where we all wanted, but here is our sincere and profound thanks.

    Using our national team for business. NFF, we are coming for you. God bless Nigeria!!!
