C.Ronaldo cried after missing a penalty kick.

C. Ronaldo could not hold back his tears after missing a penalty in extra time in the match against Slovenia in the round of 16 of Euro 2024. Fortunately, CR7 did not have to pay the price for this missed opportunity.


The match between Portugal and Slovenia in the round of 16 of Euro 2024 was extremely tense. After 90 minutes of play, the two teams tied 0-0, forcing the two teams into extra time.

The turning point of the match came in the 103rd minute when Diogo Jota dribbled boldly into the Slovenian penalty area and was fouled by Drkusic. The referee immediately pointed to the penalty spot for Portugal.

It was thought that this was an opportunity for C. Ronaldo to score to help Portugal make a difference and help him set a great record at Euro 2024, but the player born in 1985 could not defeat goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

CR7’s missed penalty put more and more pressure on him and the Portuguese team. To the point that even an experienced player like C.Ronaldo could not control his emotions.

The Portuguese superstar cried like a child on the pitch while the whole team gathered to encourage each other before the second extra time. Finally, his teammates had to run to comfort and cheer CR7 up. That image showed the solidarity of the European Selecao.

Fortunately, C. Ronaldo did not have to pay the price for his mistake. Because Portugal still had goalkeeper Diogo Costa who played very well. The Porto goalkeeper saved a clear situation when facing Benjamin Sesko (Pepe lost the ball dangerously). Then, in the penalty shootout, Diogo Costa successfully blocked all three penalties from Slovenia.

C. Ronaldo also made amends when he successfully kicked a penalty in the shootout, helping Portugal win 3-0.

With his Euro 2024 misfortune still haunting him, C. Ronaldo may enter the quarter-final match against France with some pressure. He has yet to score in this year’s tournament despite having many shots. For example, in the match against Slovenia, CR7 had 8 shots but still could not get on the scoresheet.
