like who? Quaresma? lol.
Nani looked razor sharp next to Ronaldo.
Now Nani is gonna be their playmaker/target man? Dont think he can handle that.

This is a big loss for Portugal.


Eder :D

touche :D

poor Ronaldo though.
He was trying so hard to look happy and join the celebrations.
For someone like Ronaldo, with his ego, this must be a traumatic experience.

France was abysmal. Makes their victory over Germany seem like a fluke with two lucky strikes.

I think ronaldo was scared that he would be the one to blow it. At the end of they day he knew as the captain he would be the one to lift the trophy so Portugal winning, even without him was in his self interest as well

Eder should have played up front all along the tournament. CR7 and Nani are both winger-forwards, not out and out CFs. CR7 is the best when he can play off a CF.

Oh, and CR7 isn't the GOAT, despite this win.

Did anyone see the footage of Ronaldo when they were choosing players to shoot the penalties?

Of course CR7 isn't the GOAT. The GOAT has to play well against good teams in important matches too. I don't think he even the best in the world at the moment.

For clarification I'd say that this year the best player has been, much to my dismay, Suarez - a player that if I had my way shouldn't even be playing football. However, he has had a wonderful year. Unfortunately.

GOAT talk in team sports makes no sense, especially when different positions are so different and when accomplish with the national team are so much more highly regarded then even a CL
