Euro2024: Portugal 0-0 Slovenia (3-0 on pens): Ronaldo’s missed penalty redeemed as Portugal advance

Cristiano Ronaldo was reduced to tears after missing a penalty in extra time of Portugal’s round-of-16 match against Slovenia at Euro 2024.

The 39-year-old stepped up to take the spot-kick after Vanja Drkusic was deemed to have fouled Diogo Jota in the penalty box.

The match had been stuck at 0-0, with Ronaldo desperate to break the deadlock and book Portugal a place in the quarter-finals against France.

But his shot was saved by Slovenia goalkeeper Jan Oblak, who tipped the ball onto the post.
Shortly after, the players took a brief break as they reached the halfway point of extra time. Ronaldo was visibly distraught and was spotted in floods of tears.

The Portugal captain even needed a pep talk from team-mate Bruno Fernandes as they walked back out for the second half of extra time.

Fortunately for Ronaldo, Portugal still progressed to the quarter-finals by winning the resulting penalty shoot-out.
