The summer of 2017 surely will not remain recorded in the memory of Cristiano Ronaldo, that has more than forgetting that what remains him for remembering. In spite of having lived a big season in the Real Madrid, to the forward have twisted him the things at all more finish the course, beginning by a complaint by presumptive fiscal fraud, following with a possible course of the capital and finish with a bitter defeat in the Glass Confederations.

Although Portugal arrived to the tournament like flamante champion of Europe, the Iberian selection could not desequilibrar a clash of semifinals against Chile that complicated him at the end. The meeting went to the batch of penaltis, but well could have not been like this to having signalled the referee a clear maximum penalty favourable to 'the Red' in the final instants of the extention, or to having hit the combined suramericano a double occasion that crashed by twice in the sticks.

But in the batch arose the figure of the ex Barcelona Claudio Bravo, that turned into hangman of the Portuguese and remembered to Cristiano Ronaldo his worst moments in a semifinal. The guardameta Chilean cut across the shots of Quaresma, Moutinho and Nani and Arturo Vidal, Aránguiz and Alexis Sánchez did not fail his, leaving to the forward of the Real Madrid composed and without launching.

An already lived memory

Alas, the situation lived by Cristiano Ronaldo in the batch of penaltis in front of Chile is not new for the luso, that already lived a similar in the Eurocopa of 2012, also in an eliminatory of semifinals. 

Spain and Portugal went to the decisive launchings, and with a marker of 3-2 Bruno Alves erró in his attempt, leaving the victory to shot of Cesc Fábregas that it did not forgive. The one of Madeira, usual fifth thrower, remained without not even try it and described the triumph of the ones of Vicente of the Forest like a "injustice" . An injustice that today has gone back to repeat.
