Portugal fell in front of Belgium in the eighth of final of the Eurocopa 2020 by the minimum difference, to the time that sacks his maximum goleador, Cristiano Ronaldo
The Eurocopa remains without his maximum goleador, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star leaves , still, as 'pichichi' in the only edition in which it seemed the sufficiently very accompanied as to feel favourite. With a more modest staff saw him semifinalist in Donetsk in 2012 and champion in Paris in 2016. It accumulated five targets and, beside him shined Diogo Jota, Bernardo Silva, Renato Sanches...
Portugal, of modest way, dreamed with advancing of to little to repeat the Spanish feat to win two Eurocopas followed. But no. It saw him little to the Portuguese captain in front of Belgium. The ones of Roberto Martínez, in place to support to the '7', opted by the most practical solution to prevent that they arrived him balloons. Only Renato Sanches with some spectacular start offered them options of corner. Yes it had option to unemployed balloon, but Courtois took out everything.
It was his fifth edition of Eurocopa, marking in each one of them. It is likely that this have been his last, although it would not take by surprise that Christian persist and follow luciéndose. 'Cr7' has made history: two finals (2004 in Portugal and 2016 in France), some semis (Ukraine and Poland 2012), some fourth (Austria and Switzerland 2008) and these eighth in the edition multisede. Champion in 2016. With 14 goals, 'pichichi' historical of the Eurocopas and maximum goleador of the football of selections beside the Iranian Ali Daei (109 so many).
Pepe sacks also of the Eurocopa. With the prize of MVP in the final of Saint-Dennis, the defence has showed once again his fortress. Pepe of The Cartuja against Belgium did not accuse the five years happened from the final of Paris. Always it occupied the best place, always was the strongest. It was the only that did not go out strong when bumping with Lukaku.
Directly to the changing room
It finalised the commitment and Cristiano Ronaldo set up directly to the changing room. No it was not as to applaud to the public, as yes they did all his mates. The farewells and the bitter defeat in front of Belgium affects the same to the 18 years that to the 36. It had the charm of the Belgian, that applauded to Christian more than once in The Cartuja. More than deserved.
