Cristiano Ronaldo bursts into tears after missing crucial penalty

Cristiano Ronaldo had Portugal’s Euro 2024 faith in his hands during their Round of 16 clash with Slovenia but the 39-year-old missed a crucial penalty in extra time which reduced the veteran to tears. 

The forward has yet to score a goal in Germany and has tried very hard to break that run on Monday night. Ronaldo has missed a host of chances, which included several free kicks and has cut a frustrated figure throughout the night.

Many may have been surprised to see the Portugal captain still on the pitch but his moment came in extra time when Portugal were awarded a penalty just before the halftime break.

Ronaldo missed the spot-kick as Jan Oblak dived well to save the 39-year-old’s attempt and it all became too much for the former Man United star.

When the halftime whistle blew, Ronaldo burst into tears, which will now become a moment that will be remembered for football eternity.
