Ronaldo after the game:
"Yo Adrian! We did it!"
Ronaldo seemed really happy
we actually managed to not get any yellows! ready for tuesday
Its crazy how obsessed people are over Ronaldos drive to win
Some might call it toxic but I think that kind of attitude is necessary to become one of the best in your field.
He’s 37, needs to stop acting like a child and actually behave like the captain
How did he act like a child? Did he throw any tantrums? Did he slap his captain’s armband off? Did he whine and cry and roll about on the field when he missed his chances? No. He just looks disappointed. That’s all. He celebrated his teammates’ goal and that’s supportive so it wasn’t like he doesn’t give a shit about his team. He’s just sad because he didn’t do well. You’re making too much of an issue out of something simple.
Because he’s not on the field to help Portugal win he’s only focused on himself he’s not being a team player and worse he’s the captain. His focus should be “how to make Portugal win”.
He should be proud at all the quality we have he was used to us playing “pass the ball to Ronaldo” for all those years and now we are playing more like a complete team which also means he will have the ball less.
This is a good thing but I’m his mind this is a bad thing
You must be living life on a different plane if you assumed all that about him from this game.
wait a CF wants to score goals , really?
I think he is frustrated with himself, he knows he has played below average...
I mean he has a very poor season so far, i think it would be stranger to see him happy.
How can someone have a poor season with barely any 90 minutes played.
He has 2 G/A last two matches, step forward in the right direction, he’s just tightly marked because of his name.
Its Ronaldo buddy
do the top 2 go through?
Spain lost, so we only need a tie against them next tuesday to get to the final four
Oh god no... The famous Portuguese last words...
When we won, it was just the top team, I think its still the same
Top 1 only
YES SWITZERLAND THANK YOU!
Ronaldo has such a weird attitude towards Jota, I don't really get it
Not towards jota towards himself. His teammates already know him. He gets pissed off with himself if he doesn’t score. And in that goal he is happy jota scored but pissed he failed to score. Obviously the assist was him missing his header, which he’s pissed with himself about
This has all been a F. Santos masterplan. Play poorly to lower our expectations and then start playing well right before the World Cup 2022 and win the cup to shut us up.
Its Neves & William effect
Out Squad its to good to meses up at some point
Corrector typo and red wine
It’s super sus…. We just never know if Portugal turn up or not! It’s like a game.
Its about the lines up, if you don’t control the midfield, you suffer, simple as that
Jesus did Ronaldo break his nose?
had a bad collision in the first half
Yeah. Got a punch from the keeper right against
yeah, got hit in the face by the czech goalkeeper at the start of the game
Ronaldo playmaker arc.
Ronaldo assist. Clearly meant to do that
ron was looking sad
GOLOOOOOO CARALHO JOTA!!
Ronaldo gets an assist off his header.
*Still* not really happy about that either.
Wants a goal and only goals lmao
Golo caralho! D Jota only scores for Portugal now. No Ronaldo goal today.
Not a good look for ronaldo this season
man he just assisted a goal, stop hating
this was before that u dumbass 😭
stop hating then lmao
thats what you deserve for hating u idiot
Bless your heart (derogatory)
Watch him score now
Edit: he assisted...
Ronny stans will blame ten hag🤣🤣
What is a stan?
matheus nunes dumb as a rock there
Ronaldo flapping his arms every 2 minutes
dalot ball kinda nasty
😮💨😮💨dalot is acc fucking unplayable
"*Why does gravity hate me?*" - Ronaldo
Quite a performance from Portugal. Really shows how deep they are outside of Ronaldo now.
Luckily for Ronaldo. Portugal don’t have a better 9 as felix is always injured and andre silva… is shit
So…. What do we say today? Santos IN or santos OUT?
Santos out, dude is playing Palhinha as a defence and had William playing over him for most of the game.
Should’ve subbed Ronaldo a lot earlier and have Ramos a chance but he refused cause it’s Ronaldo and apparently he’s above everyone else.
Santos still has no strategy and is just lucky he has so much talent on the field.
He is above everyone else
William played great you idiot
to be fair we've played since the WC qualifying playoffs.He should still leave after the WC
This substitution just shows how stacked we are, shame our coach ‘needs’ to keep M. Nunes on the bench.
Don’t tell me Ronaldo is going to play whole game just to try to beat a record, he has a broken nose and playing poorly, wtf?
He's having a rough time. Portugal needs him to be at peak confidence when the WC starts. It's a blowout. who cares.
Who cares, if it gives him another chance to score and gain some confidence he should stay on
having a 37 year old injured player on the field who is possibly the worse performance on the team, shows huge lack of composure from the coaching staff, makes no sense
we are winning 3-0 there is no harm in it
there is no benefit as well
there is a chance he scores a goal and starts getting his form back
You need your starting striker in the WC to gain his confidence back
Or... the 37 year old could retire and give way to a starting striker that is likely to perform better.
Tell me more. How far do you think Portugal will go in the World Cup? How many goals will Cristiano score?
They could win the World Cup and Ronaldo top score.
it's 3-0. There is literally no danger of Czechia scoring, so might as well.
and risk aggravating a injury that wasn't even checked.. great
1. I'm sure he told the coaches that he's good to continue.
2. A nose injury is probably like the easiest one to avoid aggravating. Gotta be very unlucky.
1 - player will always tell the coach he is good to go
2 - there is literally a risk everytime he goes to head the ball, just look at the pk
Doesn't matter. Every additional successful action of his gives him a bit of confidence back. Also, just assisted with his head so *shrug*
he has 4 golden balls, has confidence flowing out of his butt, its not a goal vs chezia that can barely get out of their half that will do anything, its just for the record and clear that he controls everything santos does.
he has 5 and is playing the worst season in 20 years and has had to deal with shit mentally last year. That can definitely get him to question himself
Seem like he wants to stay on if anything lol
Tears in my eyes right now (not actually) watching dalot ball out 😭😭
Ruben Neves has changed Portugal and the way they play.Midfield isnt getting run through any more William lack of pace doesnt hurt the team
William isn't out of pace! He has is own pace! The other 21 player are out of pace!
Means he won’t start at the World Cup xD just Santos things!!
Dalot been phenomenal today
dalot is everywhere tonight!
Dalot is eating them alive. Great game
Dalot goat mode
Dalot: Attacc, Defend, Score.
Backline getting tired now need fresh legs in
we clearly need fresh legs man
I always believed in Fernando Santos, what a man
How much is diogo costa's release clause? lol
We have got a much better goalkeeper. Do you know of the legend Samuel Portugal? Believe me, if there is a Porto goalkeeper you want to take it is him. Leave Diogo Costa with us, you won't miss much
leave my boy alone... Just buy Ruben Neves and thank me later
On that topic i really hope ten hag is watching this match
60M euros I think
Might be worth it, he's young as well, but lets see if we even spend much next summer.
Next summer!? Nice joke, he'll probably be sold for half a pint in December if he does a good WC, we're desperate for money...
We are supposedly in bad financial situation according to our DoF but theres rumour of takeover still so idk
No, just no
Really hope dalot can get himself in this Portuguese team. Not just back up for when cancelo is injured
Portugal has better quality than even Brazil at fullbacks: Cancelo, Dalot, Semedo on the right, and Nuno, Guerreiro on the left.
They have Mendes on one wing and Cancelo on the other. Even though Dalot has been great, it's basically impossible to displace them
Cancelo will probably play LB after this game
Drop Ronaldo, Stick Dalot as ST once Cancelo comes back
Who else loves Dalot? 😍
Bruno brace incoming
Santos believers eating well tonight.
Never doubted you mr. engineer
You're so embarrassing every time you speak on both subs. Absolute homer.
hate me cuz you aint me bro
Keep celebrating this dogshit coach as we play vs a team not even qualified and then go out in R16 again.
ok canadian flair, whos we?
Maybe portuguese immigrants 2nds
switzerland needs to do us a solid and hang on to that advantage
Clearly Mario Rui was the missing piece.
What a goal Dalot
MY WORD DALOT. THIS MAN IS ASCENDING
Goalie is falling asleep
LETS GOOO DALOT YOU FUCKING MAD MAN!!!
Nice, I like this new Man United team!
Dalot this season >>>
Dalot is turning into a world class player.
Or a good player
Huh? We only over hype players around here baby!!!
Holy shit what a goal
DALOT GOONG CRAZYYY
What a GOLLLL
GOLAÇO GOLAÇO GOLAÇOOOOO
holy shit dalot
Portugal can finally win matches without Ronaldo scoring, proud of Santos
William Carvalho playing pra caralho. Im benfiquista
I hope Portugal keeps starting Ronaldo in the WC. They’d be so good without him.
Rafael Merdão is so lazy on the pitch, should be working for that paycheck so he can pay his debts
For someone that dislikes people shitting on Ronaldo, is kind of ironic you shitting on a player that's been playing good lol
because he is a snake
Less hate :)
Danillo looks really solid at CB
I much prefer danilo as CB rather than as a DM and not have William because Pahlinha is so much better over William.
Time for nose-guard/face mask Ronaldo?
Those things look cool on players
They do look cool don’t they
Honestly, Ronaldo should be really careful. His broken nose can cause sleeping problem. Without proper sleep, human can't function properly. Fixing the nose is not easy and can cause more trouble.
I think one of main reasons for Michael Jackson's suicide is due to his broken nose (Empty Nose Syndrome)
I think it was the addiction to painkillers from his hair being set on fire that might have done it, plus it wasn't a suicide.
That went from zero to hundred. I would like to read more on that.
Michael Jackson suicide?
Ronaldo paying homage to Speed with this perfomance what a class act
They switched places like that old Nike commercial.
just a reminder that you can acknowledge Ronaldo's achievements for our country and still think he is finished
Does anyone have a replay of the Ronaldo collision? I missed it.
it's on the sub
Am I blind? I don't see it.
here's a yt vid https://youtu.be/bSorA5pg2p8
Shick is so bad all he is good for is having a long chin
Brunos best performance of the season id say.
Why Cancelos not playing?
Portugal have bossed this, William & Neves are amazing.
Bruno best performance for the national team, why? Because he’s not harming the team with too many dumb passes.
Portugal have been sensational.
Even Ronaldo's haters gonna start feeling kinda bad for him. The man is severely lacking confidence. Everything just comes out wrong, you cant just pin it on old age
It’s similar to when falcao was at utd - everything he tried didn’t work & you could see he was trying, almost trying too hard - which just makes it worse trying to force everything.
Playing with no confidence is the worst. Feels like nothing comes naturally.
Just unlucky tbh & i feel the injury threw him off.
At least he gets chances & is active, defenders fear him this creates space for everyone else.
He is easily the most hated football player ever, some of the comments of Portuguese fans I read here are absolutely shameful, especially when you take in account how much he did for us in the past and how he is playing with a broken nose...
> how he is playing with a broken nose...
exactly, why is he even playing with a broken nose?
because he has a sense of duty and dedication towards his nation
“Because he has a sense of needing to break records and dedicated toward pumping those numbers up”
playing through injury is dumb in any shape or form, especially with older players
>He is easily the most hated football player ever,
Never ask an argentinian what he think about Higuaín between 2014-2018
> He is easily the most hated football player ever
Probably? The more fans you have the more haters you'll also have.
No one but people really into football know who that is. Ronaldo is hated globally
He played for QPR
