Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about Portugal’s elimination from Euro 2020 stating that the holders left the tournament too soon.
Portugal’s hopes of retaining their European title came to an abrupt end, courtesy of a 1-0 defeat to Belgium at the round of 16 stages on Sunday.
Ronaldo enjoyed an impressive individual display at the tournament, with five goals in the group stage and a few records in the process.
The Juventus star took to social media on Monday to reflect on Portugal’s elimination.
“We didn’t get the result we wanted and we left the race sooner than we wanted. But we are proud of our journey, we gave everything to renew the title of European Champions and this group proved that it can still give much joy to the Portuguese.” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.
