Cristiano Ronaldo Reveals Belief In Portugal Team – Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken of his delight after Portugal’s surprise UEFA EURO Championship triumph.
The Real Madrid star’s night was cut short early after a tackle from France’s Dimitri Payet in the early minutes on the game, leaving the field in tears. Ronaldo however came back to the touchline, continuing to be an inspiration to his teammates.
“I am very happy. I have been looking for this for a long time, since 2004,” Ronaldo said, per BBC. “I asked God for another chance at this because we deserved it. Today I was unfortunate, I was injured but I always believed that these players, together with the strategy, would be strong enough to beat France.
“This is one of the happiest moments in my career, I always said I’d like to win something with Portugal. For me this is an amazing unique moment for all Portuguese.”
