Amazing that this group is still wide open going into the last game.
Sure, you can if you think Austria is actually good but from what I've seen they're pretty crappy and so, cheering against a small team to lose is utterly pointless.
It's pretty obvious why people are happy to see him fail. If you can't see then I don't know what to tell you.
I prefer to appreciate great players like Ronaldo than pray for them to fail.
Portugal should be dominating that group.
Pulling for an Icelandic win and a Hungarian win.
Who doesn't? Except Portuguese and Austrians.
And your more than welcomed to do that others like a good fail story.
i appreciate his talent, but i could not care less for his attitude
I don't appreciate his talent, but I'm indifferent to his attitude.
After a ****** game CR7 takes the time to let an invading fan snap a selfie with him.
What a horrible human being
I wouldn't go that far. He's unlikable, but hardly a horrible human being.
People talked about Latin football divas before Cristiano Ronaldo but he took it upon himself to take that whole archetype to a whole new level. It's like a decadent representation of Latin football culture.
I call him underwear model at home.
Yeah, no divas in European football ever before Ronaldo. This post is hilarious... But given your post history its not surprising.
Wait, what? That was actually a nice thing to do.
Of course it was nice
He even exchanged a smile with the fan after the selfie
Sarcasm detector is off lol
Of course it was nice
Oh... nicely done.
I don't know what you're getting at since I said divas existed before him. I said he is the most diva of divas, almost a caricature of a diva.
And I am by no means his harshest critic nor do I especially dislike him. I root for Real in every Clasico and generally don't mind Portugal either. It's just an observation.
Couldn't care less about him or Portugal but what I'm taking exception with is the Latin football culture dig you had. Combine that with your post history with about SA football.
Portugal demolished Austria.
It's just shocking how they couldnt finish their numerous chances.
You just had that feeling after the first 20 minutes where nani missed two point blank chances and ronaldo missed from 6yards that no matter what, they wouldnt.
I think you'll find that people aren't questioning his character as a person. Big stars struggling is also fun to watch as it makes them human again. No doubt, he'll score a hat-trick against Hungary and all will be forgotten.
Also, they were saying on the BBC that Austria need to win. That much is obvious, but don't Portugal as well? Iceland are playing Austria so the best result for Portugal is a draw. That would mean Iceland would be on 3 points and Portugal on 2.
Portugal lose, they finish third, likely not enough to go through.
Portugal draw, they finish on 3 points, like Iceland. At the moment Iceland have scored more goals so would go through. 3 points in 3rd place probably isn't enough but it could be okay.
Portugal win, they're fine.
No way. Baggio wasn't even close. Plus more was at stake
What a joke this is. How are they on 2 points?
Adrien and Rafa need to start against Hungary. There is no creativity whatsoever coming through the middle. Moutinho is finished.
And although his delivery wasn't up to par, credit to Quaresma for being the only player to have the brilliant idea of looking for other options instead of just looking for Ronaldo on every single attack.
I am. Not his off-pitch character, necessarily (no position to judge, and reports paint him as a good guy), but his character as a person on the pitch is what makes so many people enjoy seeing him fail.
