Frustrated by the loss of points in the match against Iceland (1:1), the leader of the attack of the national team of Portugal Cristiano Ronaldo allowed himself a rather sharp remarks about opponents.
“You know, I’m a bit disappointed, it was unpleasant. We tried very hard to win this game, and Iceland did nothing. They created for the game by two points and scored one goal. They put the bus at the gate and score so teams is very difficult.
Again, this is a bit unpleasant, but this is only the beginning. We are not particularly worried. Look at the other strong teams like Spain, France – they also had a difficult start. We were not the exception, but we are confident that we will win our next game.
Tonight was happy for Icelanders. They didn’t do anything, only defending, while we kept the ball and constantly tried to attack. Today we had to earn three points, but we will take her then.
I was surprised how Icelanders celebrated their draw. It was incredible, as if they won the Euro. If they think only about defense, and I don’t want to create anything themselves, if they rejoice in a draw, it suggests that they are shallow to swim. With this approach, they will not achieve anything at this tournament,” concluded Ronaldo.
