During the EURO as well, Ronaldo was in sublime scoring form and was expected to become the leading international goal-scorer of all time. He needed merely one goal to go past Ali Daei, but that will have to wait.
In a heartwarming gesture, Romelu Lukaku was seen consoling Ronaldo after Portugal’s loss. The moment is already being loved by fans.
Earlier, Ronaldo courted controversy when he removed Coca-Cola bottles during a pre-match presser ahead of the Hungary game. After removing the Coke bottles, he advised fans to have water and not the aerated drink. It is reported that following Ronaldo’s move, the beverage company incurred huge losses.
Meanwhile, Belgium will now take on Italy in the quarter-final and that is expected to be a humdinger.
