Meanwhile, with Portugal and our ex-national coach… Roberto Martinez has sent Portugal to the European Championship with a perfect report. The Spaniard received a lot of criticism after his first selections, but he was right.
Portugal won against Iceland (2-0) in the last match of the qualifying round for the European Championship 2024. Despite not being able to score, Cristiano Ronaldo was still complimented by Roberto Martínez during the post-match press conference.
Despite numerous attempts, Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score in Portugal’s 2-0 win against Iceland last Sunday evening. It was a somewhat lesser match for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, but he nevertheless deserved praise from his national coach.
During the press conference, Roberto Martínez praised the dedication of CR7 in the Portugal shirt: “Ronaldo is an example. He is 38 years old, has more caps than any other player in the world. But he has the hunger of an 18-year-old player His strength is contagious in the locker room.”
