Moment Ronaldo Shed Tears After Portugal Lost Against Morocco
As Morocco eliminated Portugal from the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo broke down in tears.
Following the Selecao’s nail-biting 1-0 quarterfinal loss to the Atlas Lions, the 37-year-old went straight to the locker room after the final whistle.
Ronaldo was comforted and taken back to the dressing room by a staff member of the Portuguese FA while walking alone and wiping away his emotions.
Given that the renowned forward was benched for the previous two games by head coach Fernando Santos, it is likely his final appearance in the league.
After coming in to replace Ruben Neves at the Al Thumama Stadium after 51 minutes, Ronaldo had a significant impact on teammate Joao Felix’s skillful lay-off, which led to a powerful shot that Bounou brilliantly saved.
