Cristiano Ronaldo tries his best to rescue Portugal, making the team away from an early exit. But the great challenges he confronted are powerful Croatia squad. The coach of Portugal — Fernando Santos is nicknamed “sharks”. Ronaldo created his records as the first footballer to score in four European Championships. The Portugal squad climbs up to third-place after Iceland and Hungary.
Only one goal after French Michel Platini, the Real Madrid footballer is quality enough for more records. But, Ronaldo reject to recognize Portugal is a loser against Croatia squad. He said Croatia is a tough squad with excellent footballers. Not each squad is quality enough to defeat Spain. “We respect them and we’ll faced them directly on football fields.
For the coming of injured teammate Luka Modric, Croatia side may be more powerful than play against Spain. The leader of Juventus is likely to get rid of a knock to win back his place. Spain side is a competent squad we had been trying to avoid. But the boss Santos said that Ronaldo is a confident football player anyway.
