Cristiano Ronaldo Slams Iceland – Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has hit out at Iceland after the two sides played a 1-1 draw at the EURO 2016.
Ronaldo had refused to shake hands with their players after the game, and revealed how he was frustrated by the opponent’s constant defending.
“I thought they’d won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end, it was unbelievable,” the Champions League top goalscorer said. “When they don’t try to play and just defend, defend, defend, this in my opinion shows a small mentality and they are not going to do anything in the competition.”
“They scored a goal, they created two chances in the 90 minutes and otherwise they got every player behind the ball, they put the bus in the net. So it’s difficult when one team don’t try, but Portugal try and play football and try to win the game.
“Iceland didn’t try anything, they were just defend, defend, defend and playing on the counter-attack. It was a lucky night for them,” Ronaldo finished.
